These veggie patties are so incredibly versatile that you can make them a regular lunch or dinner choice without getting bored. Try them over a salad, with steamed vegetables, topped with salsa, in a lettuce or cabbage leaf, dipped into the natural ketchup recipe in Cleanse to Heal, or any other way you can dream up.
Carrots: A quick liver refueling source of glucose that’s attached to minerals and vitamins. When carrots are eaten raw, they’re higher in antiseptic phytochemical compounds that inhibit the growth of unfriendly microorganisms.
Zucchini: Soothing to the intestinal tract walls, pushing out pathogens such as bacteria and fungus, allowing for better absorption of nutrients that can be sent up to the liver. Zucchini is a beneficial gallbladder food, containing phytochemicals that actually reduce gallbladder inflammation.
Potatoes: Abundant in amino acids that specifically inhibit viral growth. Potatoes are high in glucose that provides substance to the liver, as it’s precisely what the liver relies on to keep strong. Potatoes keep the liver grounded and stable, giving us a good constitution.
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon paprika
- Add 3 inches of water to a medium-sized pot, bring it to a boil, and add a steaming basket. Place the potatoes and carrots in the basket, cover, and steam for 15 to 20 minutes, until tender. Remove from heat and cool completely.
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Grate the zucchini and place it in a muslin cloth or nut milk bag to squeeze out all the water. Make sure that the zucchini is very dry; otherwise it will take the patties longer to crisp up in the oven. Add it to a mixing bowl. Grate the potatoes and carrots and place them in the bowl with the grated zucchini. Add the garlic powder, onion powder, dried oregano, and paprika and mix until combined.
- Form the mixture into about 8 patties and place them on the baking sheet. Place in the oven and cook for 45 to 60 minutes, until browned and crispy, flipping them halfway through. Allow the patties to cool for 10 to 15 minutes before eating so they firm up.
Makes 8 patties.
