These delicious appetizers can actually be eaten for breakfast, snack, or lunch. Don’t let the appearance fool you, these are not actually beet pancakes and I don’t really recommend eating them as such unless you make them thinner than the ones shown. Keep reading to learn why.
I am so excited for another Virtual Vegan Potluck! I love participating in this lovely vegan event and I always look forward to it. The first time I participated I created the delicious Strawberry Banana Bread. For my last VVP, I created an amazing gluten free Chocolate Peanut Butter Chia Puddings (drools). Today, I am sharing something even more cool and this time not sweet – Savory Beet Patties which are not only vegan but also gluten free. These are not beet pancakes even though they appear as such!
So I thought they would come out as pancakes actually. That’s the reason why the photo styling looks like they are pancakes. I truly thought these would be pancake material. I know that’s not really “appetizer” material necessarily but there is no breakfast category in VVP so yeah.
I made these patties with the full intention of them coming out as pancakes. Took the pictures. I was pleased! (besides for one “pancake” burning.. lol oops. Make sure you don’t fry them for too long or they will turn black! haha)
Then I took a bite… and another. I tried it the way it was shown on the photos. And what did I realize? These are too dense and filling and thick to be considered pancakes. Absolutely not. So definitely do NOT try eating them three in a row like you would with a pancake.
The way I actually ended up eating them (and it was PERFECT) was like bread slices. I eat my sandwiches open-faced ALWAYS and I basically treated one of the beet patties as a bread slice. It worked wonderfully! So really the name shouldn’t even be Beet Patties, it should be Savory Beet Bread Slices? That just sounds weird though so let’s stay with “patties.” But now you know what to expect so yeah.
Flavor wise these were great! There wasn’t any prominent flavor popping out and they were relatively neutral but that could have been because I put quite a lot of nutritional yeast sauce on top and that might have masked the real flavor. Overall, it was a great recipe and I have full intention of making them again but in a larger batch and simply using it as gluten free vegan sandwich bread! WOOT!
Here’s the recipe for these Savory Beet Patties.
Mmm… I’m full. I actually literally made this recipe just a few hours before posting. I ended up topping two of the beet sandwich slices with some guacamole, mixed greens, and yellow pepper. It was delish! Gotta love simple vegan recipes!
Now, let’s continue on with the Virtual Vegan Potluck!!
GO BACK to the previous recipe.
GO FORWARD to the next recipe.
Questions for you:
- What would YOU name this recipe?
- Have you ever made a recipe thinking it will be something but came out to be something totally different? Good or bad. Let me know about it, I’m curious!
Looking forward to reading your thoughts!
