I really felt like a potato curry today, but alas, time was closing in. Problem is when I get a taste bud compulsion, then a satisfying result must be at hand – and fast. “OK”, I thought, “maybe not a curry- curry, but why not make potato curry burgers?”. These friendly lookers tasted so very delicious, and if you like potato curry, you are going to love these. But in a fraction of the time, you can get maximum satisfaction out of these wicked tasting burgers. Serve these with my heavenly vegan mayo (soon to be posted), and I promise you, you will be a happy bunny, oh and a very crunchy, simple salad tossed with cherry tomatoes. If you haven’t had the time to make mayo, then slap on the ketchup, mmmmmm.
Makes around 8 small to medium sized burgers
- Instant Mashed potatoes to serve 3-4 portions – make up according to label directions, and your own personal liking (I love the salt and marge, and a little vegan milk)
- 3 tbsps of petit pois (frozen peas)
- 2 tbsps of frozen sweetcorn (boil the peas and sweetcorn together for a couple of minutes, drain and set aside)
- ½ an onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 medium-sized carrot, grated
- 4 mushrooms
- sprig of fresh mint
- sprig of fresh rosemary
- 1½ tsp curry powder
- salt to taste
- 2 tsp nutritional yeast
- 1½ tbsps unbleached flour
Easy, just blend the carrots, onion, garlic and mushrooms in a processor together with the herbs.
Add the curry and mix with the ready mashed potatoes, then add ingredients from the blender together with the remaining ingredients. Stir well with a fork, and taste for salt/seasoning.
Heat up some olive oil in a non-stick frying pan for a minute or so, and then with a large spoon, spoon in a dollop of the mixture, and repeat 4 times. Allow to cook for a few minutes on each side, and then gently turn them around. Allow to cook on both sides, and then carefully remove onto a glass or metal dish.
If you are eating these later on in the day, then you can reheat them in a hot oven. Microwave may not work so well as they may become a little to mushy, and they have enough of that already !
