Veggie Patties With Gravy

"As long as you have the 3 basic ingredients in cooking: Imagination... the Senses... and Love, you can't go wrong."

It's the weekend and we all deserve a full and scrumptious breakfast meal. Try these fritters and you will never ever give plain old potato hash browns any further thought.

Veggie Patties

Boil potatoes and carrots (optional: garbanzo beans) and wilt spinach with it at the very end. Chop the spinach into smaller pieces later.

Tip: Boil only half-way through. You still need a firm texture since if it's too mushy, the patties may fall apart during the frying process.

In the meantime, saute some scallions and season with salt & pepper.

Once done add to the rest of the vegetables. Mash the mixture to a chunky pulp. Season again once more then start forming into patties.

Proceed with frying up the veggie fritters until they form a golden crust on each side.

Note: The patties are already cooked. By frying them, your aim is just to form a crust. You can also opt to bake instead of fry.

Adding a beautiful sunny side up and/or a couple of strips of crisp bacon is a great idea. Serve it with gravy.

Simple Onion and Beef-flavored Gravy

Saute some finely chopped onions with olive oil then lightly sprinkle with flour. Cook through then add a small portion of a beef cube (1/4 of the cube will do) and some water. Stir and simmer until thick.

Hope you enjoy making and eating breakfast!
