View on Instagram

Currently sick so I have not been in the mood to cook...can barely stand! So for dinner today, I decided to whip out these patties I made few weeks back from the freezer. Literally took 5 mins to put together and now my sick self is pretty happy. These patties are also VEGAN and can be easily be altered for gluten free, paleo, or keto.

  5. Using a 1/2 measuring cup, scoop out the mixture and place on a baking dish with a slightly greased parchment paper. Shape into 5 patties.

  7. Store them in the fridge or freezer and heat up in a pan right before eating!
