Super Simple Baked Veggie Patties

Veggie Patties on Zucchini “bread”

Making your own veggie patties from nature (without the inflammatory gluten binder) can be frustrating. But I feel that this recipe not only brings in the goodness of tons of veggies, it also bakes them to perfection holding their shape. These babies make for a quick snack or protein addition to any boring salad. Keep in your freezer and pop them out as you need them.
