Vegetables are good for you. I am sure everybody knows this. But still, people usually don’t eat enough of those. I hope you are an exception and eat at least five handfuls of vegetables every day. But if you are struggling, here is a good recipe that counts towards the five servings a day. If you also add a salad to the side, it might very well be that you’ll cover all your official vegetable need for one day with only one meal.
Of course, I am not stopping there – I like to keep all my meals bright, light, and naturally colorful – some purple cabbage here, a few orange carrots there, a red apple as a snack, and many greens throughout the day. I like to think that the more colors we eat, the more necessary nutrients we get from food.
Healthy or not, these cabbage patties are just plain delicious. I usually eat them straight from the pan, but they are even more filling next to a green salad or a rice bowl.
Red Cabbage and Potato Patties
Cooking time: 25 minutes
1/4 red cabbage, grated
3 medium boiled potatoes
1 large onion, chopped
2 oz chickpea flour
½ tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp cumin powder
½ tsp ginger powder
Salt and pepper, to taste
Oil, for frying
Mash the boiled potatoes. I just crushed them with my hands, but you can also use a potato ricer.
Add the grated red cabbage, chopped onion, chickpea flour, and all the spices and mix well.
Divide into 8 equal parts and form patties between your hands. If the mixture is sticky, wet your hands lightly.
Fry on both sides until nice and crispy.
Serve with fresh salad on the side.
