I made this today to use up the okara left over from my tofu making.
2 fat cloves garlic
1 small bird chili
1 small shallot
1 chunk of galangal about the size of the end of your thumb
1 stalk of lemon grass about the size of your pinky
Mince all the above and cook them briefly in a bit of coconut oil.
Combine leftover okara (about 1.5 cups) with the aromatics listed above. Add salt to taste and breadcrumbs made from 2 slices of wholemeal bread. Add about 1/4 cup of oatmeal.
Form into patties and bake in the oven until golden. Coat the patties in melted coconut oil first if you want them to have a more 'fried' texture on the outside.
I served this on a bed of steamed spinach with chopped tomato sprinkled around the edges of the plate, and with a thai peanut sauce drizzled over the top. (I was feeling 'Master Chefy' I guess). The peanut sauce was from a packet.
These were fragrant and delicious!!
Forgot to take a picture, though. So you'll just have to imagine them. The pic below is just one I found online, but they did look a lot like this:
Just imagine those on a bed of spinach with peanut sauce drizzled over. :)
