Gluten Free. Vegan. Soy Free. Antioxidant Packed. Full of Flavor.
This meal is bursting with antioxidants and packs a flavorful punch - these little patties pair perfectly with your favorite mixed greens, sliced raw veggies, and our dairy and soy free Creamy Thai Vinaigrette Dressing. One of the things I like to do to keep healthy eating easy and make sure I stay on track with my diet is to make 1-2 dishes at the start of each week that I can use as quick lunches. I generally eat a raw lunch of salad and veggies with either a clean protein added like organic chicken or wild caught salmon or a serving of healthy grains or carbs like quinoa, sweet potatoes, or legumes.
When I make these patties, we eat them one night for dinner and then use leftover patties as a healthy and quick lunch option. They also make a great appetizer to put out at your next social gathering!
