Green sesame patties

Green sesame patties 1As you can probably tell, I love cauliflower. I am also really enjoying sesame oil and sesame seeds at the moment. These patties are a fusion of these ingredients. The peas give the patties a firmer texture and the great colour. I added the silverbeet (chard) for extra nutrients.

These patties go well with a spicy bibimbap sauce, or a tahini and yoghurt sauce. They make a nice little entrée or can be served with a big salad for a really healthy dinner or lunch.
