Jamaican Veggie Patties

I have been trying to make this recipe for a while now but it always seemed too difficult for me to pull off since I’m not particularly the best at making dough, but I finally worked up enough courage yesterday and I’m telling you it’s worth it. The dough is so tender and flaky, and it works perfectly with the mildly spicy filling.

What I love is that this recipe is completely vegetarian, there is absolutely no dairy in the dough or the filling, and although coconut oil contains saturated fat it’s actually really healthy for you. You can check out more about the health benefits of Coconut oil here.

Another thing I love about these patties is…….the color! It’s like eating pockets of sunshine!

Below are some pics of my trial-run of the veggies patties but you can check-out the full recipe here.

Preparing the filling. I forgot to add the corn, but it still tasted really good.

I left my dough in the fridge too long it ended up being rock solid. Lets just say it took me a really long time to roll it out like this. Also, I didn’t have whole wheat pastry flour, I only had regular whole wheat flour so that might have contributed to the stiffness of the dough.

I used an old tomato can to cut out the rounds.

As you can see mine don’t look as pretty as 101cookbook’s but you get the idea.

Right out of the oven!

And of course I ate them with my favourite Sriracha Chili sauce!

I had a lot of filling left over so we made a giant one with some left-over bread dough. It turned out pretty good!

  1. This looks delicious! I will have to try, once I get a kitchen surface big enough!

    • They are delicious! One note though: make sure you put something under the dough before rolling it out. It turned my counter bright yellow from the turmeric and it took me several days to scrub it out!

  2. Those look fabulous! Congratulations on your courage to give it a try. Will you make them again?
