Easy Cheesy Broccoli Cauliflower Patties

Hey all! It’s Monday again which means time for another meatless recipe.  I have been addicted to these little patties for a while now.  I like to whip a big batch and have these throughout the week as an easy way to get my veggies in at each meal.

Since this recipe uses almond meal instead of bread crumbs, they are also low-carb with only 2g net carbs per pattie.  They can also be made dairy-free if you sub the regular cheese for a dairy-free option.

    Can you make this without cheese?

      You might be able to substitute with breadcrumbs? Maybe 1/4 cup? I’m not too sure how it would turn out though as I haven’t tried it. Or you could try dairy-free cheese?
