ADELLE’S SOYA PATTIES
Lunch: hamburger. I taught my friend, Annie, how to make soya patties today.
- ½ a 500 g packet soya mince, in flavour you like
- ± 400 ml water
- 1 egg
- ± 250 ml cake flour
- oil to fry in
Use soya mince in a flavour you like, we like beef and onion. Add water and soak for 15 min. Then add the egg and thicken with the flour and whisk. Fry in oil for 3 – 4 min and flip to cook other side. Two heaped tablespoons full makes 1 large patty.
We ate it with a spinach leaf, sliced tomato, fried egg on cheese roll. Sauce was fried mayo and chutney sauce. You can also mix mash into patties if you like. Sometimes we have the patties in place of meat with rice, potato and veg. The other morning we had some on crumpets with tomato and onion stew for breakfast.
½ packet of soya mince makes 6-8 large patties.

Made these today as mini burgers after saving this post for a while. Instead of using flour, I used mash potato flakes and mashed some canned white beans plus I added some Robertson’s Portuguese Chicken Spice and Crown National Stetson burger spice. Just wanted to say that they came out perfectly – husband said they were super yummy (with some home made tomato and onion relish).
