Vegan Patties with Potatoes and Salad

A vegan patty made with a combination of mashed potatoes, breadcrumbs, spices, and vegetables such as carrots, onions, and peppers. The patty is usually shaped into rounds and then pan-fried until crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.
Served with a simple green salad made of lettuce, cucumber, and cherry tomatoes, dressed with a tangy vinaigrette dressing.
This dish provides a tasty and filling meal, rich in carbohydrates from the potatoes, vitamins, and minerals from the vegetables, and healthy fats from the dressing. It's a great option for those following a vegan or plant-based diet and is also a delicious way to incorporate more vegetables into your diet.

Mix in different vegetables: You can add grated zucchini, chopped spinach, or even sweet corn to the potato mixture to add extra flavor and nutrients.
Experiment with spices: Try using different spices such as cumin, coriander, or turmeric to give your patties a unique flavor. You can also add herbs such as chopped parsley or basil to the mixture.
Use gluten-free breadcrumbs: If you're following a gluten-free diet, you can use gluten-free breadcrumbs or make your own by toasting gluten-free bread and grinding it into crumbs.
Serve with different salads: Instead of a green salad, you can serve your patties with a quinoa salad, a bean salad, or even coleslaw.
Bake instead of pan-fry: If you want a healthier option, you can bake your patties in the oven until crispy and golden. Simply brush them with a little olive oil and place them on a lined baking sheet.
Make ahead of time: You can make the patties ahead of time and store them in the refrigerator until ready to cook. This makes them a convenient meal option for busy weeknights.
Serve as a burger: You can also serve your patties as a vegan burger by placing them on a bun with your favorite toppings such as lettuce, tomato, avocado, and a vegan sauce.
