Patties From Leftovers

There were some unused elements leftover from making the stuffed peppers (mentioned in my last post). I used them today along with a few additional ingredients to make patties. There was cooked rice and some of the seitan filling that wouldn’t fit into the peppers. To that I added freshly shredded carrot.

For no particular reason I decided to use chia seeds for a binder instead of an egg, so I poured boiling water over chia seeds and left them to soak.

For seasoning I added onion powder, garlic powder, red chili flakes, dried parsley, crushed celery seeds, crushed cumin seeds and just a little kosher salt because the leftovers had already been salted.

I then mixed in chickpea flour and the soaked chia seeds and let the mixture rest for several minutes.

After rolling the mixture into little balls I coated them with whole grain bread crumbs made from homemade bread.

I mashed the patties with a spatula in a heated skillet greased with olive oil. Should have straightened up the edges to make them pretty but I didn’t.

The patties weren’t held together by the chia seeds as well as hoped, but they tasted good anyway.

I topped the patties with leftover pumpkin seed / cilantro sauce.

  1. I put a couple of tablespoons of chia seeds in my cooked five-grain cereal along with some orange juice. The seeds (plus flaxseed meal) thicken up the liquid. I haven’t ever cooked chias, though. Do they change when cooked?

    1. I haven’t used chia very much so I really don’t know. The chia seeds weren’t noticeable in the patties. I do know that I don’t care for chia in a beverage. I prefer to drink my beverage and not have to chew it!
