Dietitian Notes / Recipe Tips

This recipe is also a perfect meal for one with leftovers for the week – just place the leftover patties in the freezer.

Once cooked, patties can be kept refrigerated for up to 4 days.

Try substituting different grated vegetables in place of carrot and zucchini (courgette) for a variety of flavours.
