FC Southwest Veggie Patties

1 cup cooked brown rice

1 cup black beans

½ cup chopped onions, dry sautéed

¼ cup diced tomato

¼ cup shredded carrots

1 cup cooked mashed sweet potato

1 tbsp cilantro

1 – 3 tsp chili powder (3 tsp is very hot)

1 tsp ground cumin

3 tbsp nutritional yeast

2 tsp minced garlic

1 tsp Tabasco or other hot sauce (opt)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and stir thoroughly. Form into ½ cup patties and bake, turning once halfway through baking, until slightly crisp, about 25 – 30 minutes.


These patties are very tasty and can be spicy. If you use three teaspoons of chili powder and one teaspoon of Tabasco you will have that spicy meal. I tone these down for guests with just one teaspoon of chili powder and one teaspoon of Tabasco.
