Making and enjoying these patties is really a joy. They’re easy to make, and a true pleasure to devour. They also make a fantastic appetizer with marinara, or a hearty entree with whole grains or turned into sliders.
I love texture, and for me that’s probably the very best thing about these patties. The crunchy outer portion, is a wonderful complement to the inner juicier section.
Here are a few of the many health benefits a few of the ingredients offer:
Butternut Squash– Strengthens the immune system, prevent cancer, protects the heart, boost respiratory health, and reduces blood pressure.
Curry– Is blend of seasonings, usually containing turmeric. It can help lower cholesterol levels and prevent gallstones.
Cumin– is really a powerful anti-oxidant. It can really help if you suffer from inflammation.
Parsley– is great for the liver and kidneys, and high in Vitamins A and C. Please read my easy to follow recipe below to make your very own.
