• 2 cups mashed potatoes (about 4 medium-sized potatoes, boiled and mashed)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh herbs (such as parsley, chives, dill, or a combination)
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs (ensure they are vegan-friendly)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil (for frying)


  1. Prepare the Potatoes: Peel and chop the potatoes into even-sized chunks. Boil them in salted water until fork-tender. Drain the water and mash the potatoes until smooth. Allow them to cool slightly before proceeding.
  2. Mix the Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the mashed potatoes, finely chopped herbs, chopped onion, bread crumbs, minced garlic, lemon juice, salt, and black pepper. Mix well until all the ingredients are evenly distributed.
  3. Form Patties: Take a portion of the mixture and shape it into a patty using your hands. You can make them as thick or as thin as you prefer. Repeat this process with the remaining mixture.
  4. Cook the Patties: In a skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Place the potato patties in the skillet and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and crispy.
  5. Serve: Once the patties are cooked, transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil. Serve the vegan potato patties with herbs while they are still warm.
  6. Optional: You can serve these patties with a dipping sauce of your choice, such as vegan sour cream, tahini sauce, or a tangy tomato-based sauce.

These Vegan Potato Patties with Herbs are versatile and can be enjoyed as a main dish, a side dish, or even in a sandwich or wrap. Feel free to adjust the herbs and seasonings according to your taste preferences.
