This is an unusual recipe in that it incorporates cabbage, for example, which is not readily used for patties. It is nonetheless, a tremendously savory recipe and extremely nutritious. If you have to feed someone (child or adult) who is not crazy about veggies, this one's for you!

1 loaf of crusty bread (whole grain, your choice)
1 raw potato, peeled
1 medium tomato
1/2 cup raw cabbage
1/2 cup spinach
1/2 cup celery
1/2 cup sweet green peppers
1/2 cup sweet red peppers
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
1 large carrot, peeled
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup sweet peas, thawed
1/2 cup oats
1 Tbsp. chicken style seasoning (vegan)
Salt to taste
3 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder
Onion and garlic powder to taste
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
4 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/4 cups water
Olive oil

Optional: Your favorite pasta sauce if strips are desired

Tear the bread into small pieces. In a bowl, soak the bread with as little water as possible until soft. Meanwhile, inn a food processor or blender process all the ingredients, except the seasonings, the oil, the whole wheat flour and the bread.
Scrape this paste into the bowl in which the bread soaked until soft. Mix well, add the seasonings and incorporate well. You must get a firm dough that is not runny.
"Paint" a skillet with olive oil and drop the mixture by large tablespoonfuls into it. Wait till set before you flip. Cook till golden brown on both sides.
If you want to use this recipe as strips, wait till the patties cool, and using a sharp knife, cut them into strips. In a skillet, pour only enough of your favorite pasta sauce for the strips to soak up the liquid sauce and become plump and juicy, add only enough sauce to keep that going until your strips are heated through. This makes a wonderful side for rice, baked sweet potatoes, etc. The regular patties can be used as you usually use your patties.
