Vegetarian carrot burgers

Easy vegetarian and gluten free carrot burger patties

Carrot burgers are something my beloved grandmother made me when I was living with her during high school years. She passed a few years ago at the age of 97 having lived a fulfilling life. She never complained about little things and was happy all the time. I never got to write down her carrot burger patties recipe so I’ve been trialling different ones over the past few years. I think this version is pretty good and healthy too. You can eat these veggie patties straight from the pan with a side dish such as fried egg rice, or cold as a snack.
