The Lunch Files | Curried Veggie Burger Pita


I'm headed into my second trimester of pregnancy this week (woo hoo!), and I've been ecstatic to find my normal appetite returning. Two weeks ago I made a mild curry dish, hoping the carrots, rice and potatoes would be subtle enough for me to actually stomach- but no dice. So now that I can stand to smell yummy food again, I thought I'd give curry another go! This time in the form of a veggie patty.

I have tried this veggie patty recipe before, but attempted to blend the ingredients in a blender. Big mistake. The second time around worked much better, but I think I might've blended it too well, because the batter sort of turned into paste. Still, I cooked up some patties and found that they kept their shape better when reheated the next day. Such a yummy, satisfying lunch. And not too shabby in the health department, either!

    This looks amazing, and I’m very excited for me to pass this recipe to my resident chef (I’m not really allowed in the kitchen). Thanks for sharing!

    Chaucee, I LOVE falafel, but have never made it at home. I read reviews for this patty recipe (above) that said the patty tasted like falafel, but I don’t think I got the texture right, because I didn’t think it did. I’m definitely preparing to make falafel though, because it’s just too yummy not to eat at home as often as I want to. haha
