Curried Cashew Pepper Patties {gluten free}

Like the pea fritters I made a few weeks ago, these pepper patties were gone in an instant! I especially love these because the flavor combination are so unexpected and delicious. I actually made them before my husband got home from work and when we sat down to eat them, I had him try to guess what was in them. They are tricky little ingredients to pick out so I ended up spilling the beans and letting him in on my secrets.

I can’t wait for you to see the recipe at the bottom of this post, but while we’re chatting, why don’t you see if you can guess! I’ll give you a hint, the raw ingredients spread through the photographs are key. ;-)

Hello, red bell pepper and cashews!

Again, with the curry! I told you I’m obsessed. The flavor is surprising and out of this world. They are completely vegan, but I decided to enjoy them with a little bit of non-fat plain greek yogurt. :)

In continuing with our week of bell peppers, today we’re giving away a Wusthof Classic 8” Chef’s Knife – $190 Value thanks to Divemex! Having a chef’s knife to work in the kitchen makes things so much easier. I got my first one two years ago and it’s amazing the ease of prep work in the kitchen. Cutting bell peppers, no problem. :) Be sure to scroll down to the bottom to enter!

Before I reveal the ingredients of these patties, here are some more amazing bell pepper recipes that are a part of this week’s pepper party!

Curried Cashew Pepper Patties {gluten free}

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa (cooked according to packaged instructions)
  • 1 cup raw cashews
  • 1 cup diced bell peppers (I used TJ’s frozen assorted, thawed)
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2-3 tablespoons unrefined coconut oil

How-To

  1. Cook the quinoa according to packaged instructions. To make my quinoa, I brought 1 cup of water and the 1/2 cup of quinoa to a boil, then put it on simmer and covered for 15 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a blender (such as a Blendtec) or food processor, process the cashews until it resembles a fine flour.
  3. Add in the cooked quinoa, bell peppers and curry powder and blend until combined.
  4. In a large sauce pan, heat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil. Gently dip the back of your spatula in the oil to coat. Scoop out five 3 tablespoon sized patties (with an ice cream scoop) onto the melted coconut oil in the pan. With the back of your greased spatula, press down the patty to flatten. Allow them to cook for about 3 minutes before flipping. They should be golden brown on each side. Remove and place on a paper towel covered plate.
  5. Repeat that cooking process using 1 tablespoon of coconut oil for cooking five patties.
  6. Serve with non-fat greek yogurt, green onions and/or siracha. I also served our patties with fresh pineapple and steamed peas.

  1. Not so much a recipe…but I love bell peppers with just about everything. On pizza, in salad, on sub sandwiches, in Thai red curry.

  2. I am obsessed with peppers in eggs/omelets! And of course, no stir fry is complete with out some crunchy red/green pepper!

  3. What a great recipe! I love a good veggie burger, and this really changes things up from the black bean patties I make most of the time.
