To make things gluten-free, we also incorporate cassava flour and eggs as a binder to help hold everything together. This adds density to the patties so that it prevents them from falling apart when baking.
Helpful Tips To Get You Started:
- Customize these patties to your liking. Think of these patties like a blank canvas. For instance, you can mix things up with Latin-inspired ingredients like cilantro, lime, and chili powder. Similarly, you can go Asian with coconut aminos, lime, ginger, and garlic.
- Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty. Dive in with your hands to fully incorporate. It’s the quickest and easiest way to ensure all ingredients are evenly distributed.
