Spicy potato and cauliflower hash patties

These spicy potato and cauliflower hash patties are low calorie, vegan, gluten free and paleo but don’t let that put you off, they are really delicious. Serve them with a spicy tomato chutney on the side for a bit of heat.

 I’ve prepared these specifically for a 5:2 lunch time meal, and at 200 calories per serving (including the Chutney) these are relatively filling (320 grams), and have a wonderful flavour thanks to the addition of the Madras curry powder.

These patties are very delicate to handle, hence the hash reference. If I had more calories to spare, I’d probably add some flour and an egg to bind then better – which would also make the non Paleo and not Vegan. 

Serve these with some store bought, or better yet homemade tomato chutney for an extra flavour hit. I’ll post a recipe for the tomato chutney  shortly – in the meantime, here’s a picture.
