Cooked pumpkin makes the perfect base for these tasty patties as it is soft and easy to shape. You could also try sweet potato, which has a slightly different flavour. You can also vary the patties by adding different vegetables to the basic mix. Instead of peas, for instance, you could try finely diced capsicum, celery or cooked green beans. Serve the patties with a dip of your choice – yoghurt, avocado, hummus or even sweet chilli sauce all work well.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g pumpkin, cut into 1 cm cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon plain flour
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup cooked peas
2 tablespoons walnuts, roughly chopped
2 tablespoons coriander leaves, chopped
or 1 tablespoon mint leaves, chopped
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
2 lemon wedges, to serve

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C and line an oven tray with baking paper.
  2. Toss the pumpkin with the olive oil then tip into the prepared oven tray. Bake for about 15 minutes, or until very soft. Remove from the oven and set aside until cool enough to handle.
  3. Mix the cooled pumpkin with the flour, curry powder and a little salt and pepper. Stir in the cooked peas, walnuts and herbs. Divide the mixture into 6 and shape into small patties. Carefully roll the patties in sesame seeds, pressing lightly so they adhere.
  4. Lower the oven temperature to 180ºC. Place the patties on the oven tray and bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown.
  5. Serve with lemon wedges or your choice of dip.
