    Default Vegetarian Syrian Pumpkin Patties.

    I want to make this recipe later this week. Can you guys please have a look at it, and tell me if I really need a food processor? I don't have one. I do have a blender, though I don't think that will work. Perhaps I could just hand mix the stuff together?

    Any input would be great - thanks

    In my opinion, you should be fine with just mixing everything thoroughly. The only difference I can see is that the texture will be slightly different, as the bulgur doesn't get ground, but then that could be quite nice - adds a bit of crunch. Possibly you might need a bit more flour to bind the mixture together this way, but I can't see why it wouldn't work without a food processor.
    Let us know how they taste, sounds like an interesting recipe.

    Well, not that anyone probably cares....but with some small adjustments to the recipe, the patties turned out really well.

    Without the food processor, I just blended everything together, but had to add extra flour. Even when I'd made the patties, the were really sticky, so I coated them in even more extra flour. Then I put them in the fridge for about an hour (to help them stay together) before frying.

    Anyway, here's how they turned out:



    And with a nice organic side salad:

    Yummy, they look nice! Thanks for sharing this with us Roxy, and for the alterations to the recipe. I will definitely give them a go, had a butternut squash in my vegetable box yesterday which is way too big for just one meal, so I'll be having a feast over the weekend!

    Thanks Applepie! I used a tin of pumpkin - but the recipe tells you the alterations to make if using fresh pumpkin/squash. Let me know how they turn out, if you give them a go

    Thanks Cedar - they're really yummy! I tried them with some soy sour cream on the side as well.

    Hi Ruby - I guess you could say they're "slightly" sweet, but they're definately more of a savoury item. I didn't make them big enough for burger patties - but you could definately do them that way too.

    Ok, so I made them for dinner tonight and they were really good! Looking forward to the leftovers tomorrow, should be nice cold as well.
    I did process the whole lot, and I then didn't need to add any additional flour, but I also left them in the fridge for an hour before frying them.
    I think they could be jazzed up a bit by playing with the seasoning, but on the whole they are really good.

    Glad you gave them a go applepie! They're really nice cold I wonder what they'd be like with either some ginger, or some cinnamon in them?

    That's exactly what I thought, both spices go really well with pumpkin. Will give it a go next time, I think I'll make them again.
