Hi there, is Wednesday again and today I’m posting from a slightly different part of Sweden. I’m currently sitting on the floor of a hotel-room in Kalmar, a small town in the south-east of Sweden, after eating my third Christmas-table in the same amount of days. The city is small but really cosy and all the christmas lights are up and shining creating little butterflies in my stomach. I’m more exited for christmas this year than ever before.
These carrot and halloumi patties was a invention from Friendsgiving last weekend. One of my friends is a vegetarian and I always struggle coming up with tasty things to serve to her. I’m getting better and better on eating/making vegetarian meals but I find it hard to make them feel as luxurious as some other dishes containing meat/poultry.
However, these were a complete hit wit the masses. The patties go super-crispy on the outside and the halloumi makes the consistency really soft on the inside. The addition Sriracha gives it a little kick and the hemp-seeds on top add a bit of crunch. Basically, the perfect vegetarian meal. Also, they are so easy to prepare the night before and just fry crispy in a pan just before serving.
250 g carrot
200 g halloumi-cheese
2 large eggs
40 g breadcrumbs
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp Sriracha
Salt & Pepper
Carrot and halloumi patties
Peel the carrots and grate them on the bigger side of the grater, then grate the halloumi and put everything in a bowl. Add in the eggs, breadcrumbs, Sriracha, onion powder and salt and pepper to taste.
With wet or oiled hands, form 6-8 patties. Then either carefully fry them in a pan (they are a bit fragile until they have cooked) with some oil or bake in a oven on 250 degrees celsius. Then firstly brush them with oil on both sides and bake for 15-20 min or golden.
