The outfit I wore for a night out to dinner, consisted of:
- shirt from TJ Maxx (recent)
- white tank top Rue 21
- J Crew knockoff necklace
- Star jeans I have had for years
- belt from Walmart (recent)
- shoes from Rue 21 last year
So for the food part of this post, I was recently given some homegrown butternut squash from my mother in law. I had never had any that was locally grown before, so I was excited. To me, it seemed to be a bit softer. Butternut is normally such a pain to cut and peel, but this seemed a bit easier. I peeled and shredded it to put into patties.
Butternut patties (for veggie burgers or a side dish!)
- 2 cups shredded butternut squash
- 3/4 cup shredded carrot
- 1/4 cup diced purple onion
- 1/4 cup chopped green onion
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs(not pictured)
- 2 tsp Greek seasoning
- salt/pepper to taste
In a large bowl, mix all ingredients together well. Heat about 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large skillet over medium heat. *You can use more, but this way they are much more healthy than deep frying*. This makes about 4 large patties for a veggie burger or 6 smaller ones if you are using them as a side dish. Make the patties loosely with your hands and place them into the heated skillet. Cook until you think the first side is slightly browned, about 4 or 5 minutes. You may need a bit more oil, or you can just spray the 2nd side with cooking spray to avoid unnecessary extra calories. Carefully flip each one and cook until the second side is lightly browned.
You can easily wrap and freeze these for quick veggie burgers or snacks! Dip them in a little sour cream...yum!
Love what you eat and eat what you love! :)
