Root Vegetable Patties

By David Cohlmeyer

Makes 8 patties

These quick and easy golden patties can serve as a vegetarian main course. Accompany them with an assortment of other root vegetables. They can also be served as an appetizer or side dish to any meal.

2                      large eggs

1/2 cup            flour (any type)

1/2 tsp             salt

3 cups              coarsely shredded root vegetable(s)

1/4 cup            cooking oil

Beat the eggs until quadrupled in volume. Fold in the flour, salt and vegetable(s). In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of the oil. Using a serving spoon, add four spoonfuls of the vegetable mixture evenly into the pan. Press down on each patty to nearly fill the frying pan. Fry until both sides of the patties are browned. Transfer the patties to a towel-lined plate. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil and repeat with the remaining vegetable mixture. Serve with sour cream and/or your favourite salsa.
