  • It is optional to add oil when cooking - these can also be pan-fried 


That's it! Simple, high plant-protein, and filling. Keep leftovers for three days in the fridge. Warm up for best results. As you can see they are crisp on the outside with a delicate centre. If you cant get ground cassava then use ground almonds or ground oats, they create a nice crisp texture. Do avoid coconut flour for this one.

++ Flax egg - 1.5 Tbsp flax seeds and 4 tbsp of water, let it sit until gelled.
