After a day of hiking or city sightseeing, this quick and easy dish will renew your spirit. It is rich in vitamins, minerals and proteins. These Veggie Patties are similar to small omelets – only with just enough egg to bind the vegetables together.

 

Estimated cooking time: 10 minutes

For: Vegetarians

Makes: 6 patties

 

VEGGIE PATTIES

1 small onion, halved and thinly sliced

1 small carrot, grated

1 large handful of spinach, washed well and cut into ribbons

1 glove of garlic, finely minced

2 eggs

½ teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoons of oil

 

Beat the eggs in a bowl. Add the vegetables, garlic and salt. Stir until the vegetables are coated with the egg.

In a skillet, heat the oil. Spoon the egg mixture into the skillet to make small patties. When browned on one side, turn the patties over and brown the other side.

Serve over rice and with sliced tomatoes or a simple salad. For an extra zing, drizzle the patties with soy sauce.

 

Tips :

The leftover patties make a great sandwich the next morning.
