  1. Prep the Veggies:
    • In a large bowl, mix together the finely shredded cabbage and grated carrot. Sprinkle with 1/3 tsp salt and let it sit for about 10 minutes. The salt helps draw out moisture from the vegetables.
  2. Create the Patty Mixture:
    • Squeeze the excess moisture from the cabbage and carrot mixture. Return the veggies to the bowl and add the eggs, remaining salt, black pepper, oat flakes, grated cheese, and flour. Mix until well combined. Stir in the minced garlic for an extra flavor boost.
  3. Form the Patties:
    • Shape the mixture into patties, about the size of a standard burger. If the mixture is too wet to form patties, you can add a little more flour or oat flakes to help bind everything together.
  4. Cook the Patties:
    • In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add the patties to the pan. Cook them for approximately 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they achieve a golden brown and crispy exterior. This cooking time ensures that the patties are thoroughly cooked and develop a delicious crispiness.
  5. Serve:
    • Serve the patties hot, topped with a dollop of thick yogurt. Garnish with chopped walnuts and dill for a crunchy, herby finish.

These Fresh Cabbage and Carrot Patties are not just a treat to your taste buds but also to your health.
