These fried patties are crispy on the outside and light, fluffy, and garlicky on the inside. Broccoli rabe sautéed with garlic adds a depth of flavor while cashew milk brings the creaminess. Enjoy these patties on a bed of lettuce as part of a salad, or eat them as a side with spicy sriracha.

Fried Smashed Potato Patties With Garlic Broccoli Rabe [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

High Carb Vegan Vegan


  • 4 large potatoes, roughly chopped
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil, plus more for cooking
  • 6 tablespoons cashew milk
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Half a bunch of broccoli rabe, stems removed and roughly chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced


  1. Boil the chopped potatoes for 10-15 minutes, until soft. While the potatoes are cooking heat approximately 1 tablespoon of coconut oil in a pan or cast iron skillet until hot. Add the minced garlic, continually moving it around the pan with a spatula or wooden spoon until slightly browned. Add in the broccoli rabe (stems removed) and sauté until bright green and softened. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl combine the potatoes, coconut oil, cashew milk, thyme, salt, and pepper and mash until smooth. Add in the garlic broccoli rabe and toss to combine. Refrigerate until cold.
  3. For the fried patties, simply make large round balls from the mashed potatoes. Put a skillet on medium heat with olive oil and place the patties onto the hot pan. Fry for about 4 minutes per side, or until golden brown. Serve hot.
