CHICKEN SPINACH PATTIES
Updated: Oct 1, 2020
1 lb Organic Ground Chicken (or turkey) 2 Small or 1 medium shallot (or onions) 6 Garlic cloves 1 Large Yam or Sweet potato (or 1 cup butternut squash), optional 1 carrot or celery (if you use sweet potato or squash, skip carrot and add celery!) 1/6 tsp Black pepper 1/6 tsp Sea salt 2-3 cups of fresh baby spinach
Some dill or cilantro (optional)
1. Wash, peel, cut all veggies in pieces (shallots, garlic, yam, etc.) and grate it one by one or at once (depends on size of your processor) in food processor to a minimum consistency (little tiny pieces). Mix all ingredients with ground turkey or chicken, your choice.
2. Add minimal amount of salt, pepper and any greens of your choice. Grind spinach with a bit of water in food processor or add some carrot pieces to better grate it, add to meat and mix it well again. 3. Preheat a non-stick 12-14" non-stick skillet to med-high heat with some water or no water if skillet works well
4. Using 1 Tbsp measurement or spoon to place mini patties on a pan. Keep heat at medium high, this way patties won’t fall apart but have nice crispy brown color under and ready in minutes to be turned to another side, about 3 minutes. When patties look gold-brown on edges, it is time to turn for another 1-2 minutes! You can also bake these in the oven. Preheat the oven to 285 F and bake around 40 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of the patties; If short on time, preheat the oven to 385 F and reduce the amount of time until cooked through.
Serve with any fresh salad, healthy side options, carbs or veggies, and some healthy fat!
It could be a great way to serve your Halloween dinner or party. You can make them bite size for guests and kids :). This is how i serve them, pretty tiny and kids and adults all love it.
You can also pair it with some berries and sprouts as shown on a picture. I personally love patties with kiwi. Tastes so amazing :) but it might not fit your gut or taste buds...
OTHER WAYS TO COOK IT: Use oven. Preheat Oven to 280 F, cook for about 1 hour.
