These Veggie Cakes are a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables!
They are only 1 point per serving (which is two veggie cakes) for blue, green and purple.
I cheated a little bit to make this recipe even easier. You need shredded carrots, shredded zucchini, and riced cauliflower. I’ll tell you how I made this happen without the arm workout of shredding.
I bought frozen riced cauliflower instead of making my own.
For the zucchini I bought zucchini noodles – zoodles. I found them in the fruit and vegetable section at the grocery store. I cut the zucchini noodles into smaller pieces so it was more like shredded zucchini.
I also bought carrots that were already shredded. I did the same thing with the carrots and cut them down some.
Next I put all of the vegetables into a mixing bowl and added garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, one egg, flour, then stirred it all together.
Instead of frying the veggie cakes in oil I used Pam olive oil cooking spray, which is 0 points.
I used a measuring cup to scoop up the veggie mixture. 1/4 cup for each veggie cake should make 8.
To cook them you’ll want to put them into a heated non-stick frying pan. I cooked them for 3 minutes on each side.
These veggie cakes taste great with sour cream! Make sure to add any additional points for the sour cream.
Yield: 8 Veggie Cakes (2 veggie cakes per serving = 1 point for blue, green and purple)

- 1 cup carrots, shredded
- 1 cup riced cauliflower (If you buy frozen riced cauliflower let it thaw first)

- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
Add the zucchini, carrots and riced cauliflower to a mixing bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir together.
Spray olive oil cooking spray to a heated frying pan. Use 1/4 measuring cup to scoop up the veggie mixture and add to the frying pan. You should get 8 veggie cakes.
Cook for 3 minutes, then flip and cook for 3 more minutes.
