Zucchini Rice Patties
Light and lemony, these patties are packed with flavor! Enjoy with creamy vegan dill sauce.
1/2 cup zucchini, finely grated (unpeeled)
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
2/3 cup finely sliced scallions
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 cups cooked Forbidden Rice®, mashed lightly with a potato masher
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 tablespoons arrowroot
1 teaspoon celery seed
1/2 cup fine organic cornmeal or organic corn flour
Frying or baking oil:
Sunflower or safflower oil
Fresh lemon slices
Creamy Vegan Dill Sauce A rich and creamy sauce that is perfect for topping the Zucchini Rice Patties.
1 cup vegan mayonnaise
1 teaspoon fresh dill, minced
1-1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Splash of lemon juice, white wine or mirin rice wine
Place grated zucchini in a bowl and rub the salt into it. Transfer the zucchini to a strainer and set aside to drain for 15-20 minutes.
In a medium size skillet sauté the minced onion in the olive oil over medium-low heat. Combine the remaining patty ingredients in a large bowl. Add the drained zucchini and sautéed onion and mix well. With wet hands, form the mixture into 6 to 8 small patties. Dip each patty into the cornmeal coating to completely cover both sides. To fry the patties, heat the sunflower oil over medium heat in a cast iron skillet. When the oil is hot, fry the patties, 2-3 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Transfer patties to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil. Sprinkle with sea salt and serve on a bed of mixed greens, drizzled with Creamy Vegan Dill Sauce and garnished with slices of fresh lemon. To bake the patties, preheat the oven to 350° degrees F. Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with lightly oiled parchment paper. Brush or spray the patties with some sunflower oil and bake for 15-20 minutes, until lightly browned.
Creamy Vegan Dill Sauce for Zucchini Rice Patties:

Makes 6-8 appetizer size patties.
