  • 1/ 2 pound broccoli florets
  • 1/ 2 pound cauliflower florets
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 small sweet potato, peeled, cooked and mashed
  • 1 cup brown rice, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 cup rice flour, plus more for coating
  • 3 tablespoons tapioca starch
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • a handful of chopped cilantro
  • Oil, for frying
  • Thai sweet chili sauce, with lime juice


  • Step 1

    Bring a pot of water to boil, blanch broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots until fully cooked for few minutes.

  • Step 2

    Then, drain veggies well and coarsely chop using a hand pull processor or food processor. Do not blend until it turns into a paste.

  • Step 3

    Place all chopped veggies in a big bowl, add mashed sweet potatoes, brown rice, salt, flours and mix well. You want to be able to form a patty, if it's too wet, add 2 more tablespoons of rice flour. Form mixture into small patties and refrigerate for 15 minutes. Rub more flour to both side of each patty.

  • Step 4

    In a heated pan with 2 tablespoons oil, cook patties until golden brown on each side. Serve with Thai sweet chili sauce and lime juice.
