Ingredients
  

Pistachio Patties

  • 1, 14oz can cannolini beans, drained, rinsed, and divided
  • ¼ cup corn, cooked
  • cup basmati rice, cooked and cooled
  • 1-2 green onions, chopped green & white parts
  • 1 tbsp flaxseed meal
  • 1 lemon, zested
  • 1 tsp fresh dill
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • ½ cup pistachios, finely chopped

Roasted Garlic Dill Sauce

  • 1, 5.3 oz container Forager Project cashewmilk plain unsweetened yogurt
  • 2 tbsp runny tahini
  • 1 tsp dill
  • 1 tsp lemon
  • ¼ tsp cardamom
  • 1 head of garlic, roasted squeezed from the peels

Instructions
 

Pistachio Patties

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In the bowl of a food processor, pulse the pistachios until they're finely chopped. Remove from and place in a small bowl with breadcrumbs. Set aside.
  • In the food processor, combine ⅔ of the cannolini beans, corn, basmati rice, green onions, flaxseed meal, lemon zest, dill, curry powder, and turmeric. Pulse until a ball forms stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
  • Add in the rest of the cannolini beans and pulse again until just combined so that there are chuncks of beans in the mixture.
  • Divide mixture into 6 balls. Press each ball into a patty and coat with chopped pistachios.
  • Place the patties onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-25 minutes, flipping half way. Patties are finished when they're golden and crispy.
    Alternately, heat 2-3 tbsp of oil in a large skillet. Once hot, gently place patties in the oil making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for 5 minutes or until crispy and flip cooking an additional 5 minutes. Remove from the oil and place on paper towels to remove excess oil. Continue until all patties are fried.

Roasted Garlic Dill Sauce

  • In a small food processor or blender, combine the plain cashewmilk yogurt, tahini, dill, lemon, cadamom, and roasted garlic. Blend until smooth.
  • Serve pistachio patties warm topped with roasted garlic dill sauce and fresh herbs or thinly sliced green onions.
