High-protein oat, almond and spinach patties
Oats aren't only for breakfast and it's great how versatile they can be in sweet and savoury dishes. I came up with the idea for these when I desperately fancied a light but filling snack without having to spend ages in the kitchen. They are a very easy way of getting your greens in and I will definitely make them again soon! Create smaller versions and serve as canapés at a party - a guaranteed conversation starter!
Serve either with coconut or soy yoghurt or chilled cashew sour cream (recipe here).
INGREDIENTS (4 patties):
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup ground almonds
- 1/2 onion
- 100g spinach
- 2 tsp minced garlic
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 3/4 tsp salt
- 1/8 cup of water
- Dash of pepper
- 1/2 cup of gram flour (chickpea flour)
Preheat you oven to 200C (475F).
This recipe works best with a food processor but a smoothie blender will do as well.
Add all ingredients apart from the gram flour into a food processor and blend until you get a smooth mixture (if you don't have a food processor, chop onions and garlic finely, then use a smoothie blender and process the oats on their own so you get a fine mix. Then blend all wet ingredients separately). Pour the mixture into a bowl and mix together with the gram flour.
Make patties by spooning onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake in the oven for about 15minutes.
Serve with either coconut or soy yoghurt or chilled cashew sour cream.
