  • 450 g zucchini
  • 50 g carrots
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1/2 bunch of parsley
  • 2 tablespoons flaxseed
  • 4 tablespoons starch
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin


  1. Prepare the Vegetables:
    • Grate the zucchini and carrots into a large mixing bowl.
    • Finely chop the half onion and add it to the bowl.
    • Mince the garlic clove and add it to the vegetable mixture.
    • Finely chop the parsley and mix it in with the other ingredients.
  2. Make the Flaxseed Mixture:
    • In a small bowl, combine the flaxseed with a few tablespoons of water to create a flax “egg.”
    • Let the mixture sit for a few minutes until it becomes gelatinous.
  3. Combine Ingredients:
    • Add the flaxseed mixture to the grated vegetables.
    • Stir in the starch, salt, black pepper, red pepper, and cumin.
    • Mix thoroughly until all ingredients are well combined and the mixture holds together.
  4. Form the Patties:
    • Using your hands, shape the mixture into small patties.
    • Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a lightly greased tray.
  5. Cook the Patties:
    • Preheat a skillet over medium heat and add a small amount of oil.
    • Cook the patties in batches, about 3-4 minutes on each side, until golden brown and crispy.
    • Alternatively, you can bake the patties in a preheated oven at 180°C (350°F) for about 20-25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  6. Serve:
    • Remove the patties from the skillet or oven and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.
    • Serve hot, garnished with additional parsley if desired.
