Broccoli & Cauliflower Veggie Patties
Finally getting this Trader Joe’s copycat of their Broccoli & Cauliflower Veggie Patties recipe in your hands!! I love their patties because they are frozen little discs you can always have on hand in the freezer, then just cook them up on the stove top. Ruthie, like most toddlers, doesn’t love veggies. I try to get them into things like mixing cauliflower rice with regular, blending them into smoothies, or making these patties! They are almost all veggie and thanks to some potato, they aren’t overwhelming with broccoli & cauliflower flavor but it is still in there. I love that these are baby friendly, but these Broccoli & Cauliflower Veggie Patties are super adult friendly too! I love them for a quick side dish on a weeknight when you don’t seem to have many veggies in the fridge. So stock your freezer with these patties and fill the whole fam with veggies!
They freeze perfectly in these size patties!
I love how these hold together so well!
