How this Plant-Based Dinner Comes Together
These Spiced Vegan Patties with Crispy Potatoes are really flavorful and simple to make, with mainly pantry ingredients.
First, you’ll preheat the oven and prep the potatoes and broccoli by peeling and chopping, then arranging them on baking trays. Drizzle them with some oil and season generously. For the potatoes, you can use whatever variety you have on hand.
Keep in mind that the smaller you cut them, the quicker they will cook. Aim to make the potato chunks the same size, where possible. For a medium potato, I made a cut lengthwise, then cut each of those pieces into 3 chunks. Feel free to make smaller pieces for quicker cooking. For the broccoli florets, you’ll want to make sure that these are also of similar size to one another, for even cooking.
While those are cooking, add the seasonings to the Beyond Meat Patties and form them into 8 small patties. Then cook on the stove for a few minutes per side. You can add a touch of oil to the skillet, and keep in mind that the Beyond Meat Patties will release a bit of oil on their own as they heat. You’ll want a light browning on each side, but note that the patties tend to not get very browned (if they do, you may have over-cooked them).
Meanwhile, whisk together the simple creamy sauce that you’ll later drizzle on the spiced patties.
Once everything is cooked, you’re ready to serve! Top with fresh herbs, the creamy sauce drizzle, and (optional) pomegranate seeds.
