Print Recipe


  • cup whole grain flour (⅓ cup = 45g)
  • ½ tsp caraway seeds
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 egg (or mix 1 tbsp ground flaxseed with 3 tbsp hot water, stir and let rest for a min to create a ‘flax egg’)
  • 6 tbsp water
  • ½ medium red onion
  • 1 heaped cup sweetcorn
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • ½ cup low fat Greek yoghurt* (½ cup = 120g)(or sour cream)
  • 2 handful baby leaf salad


  • In a bowl add flour, caraway seeds, cayenne pepper, salt, egg and water. Mix to a batter.
  • Finely dice the red onion and rinse and drain the sweetcorn. Mix in both to the batter.
  • Add the olive oil to a pan and set to medium heat.
  • Now, ideally with a big spoon, take a burger-sized amount of the batter and place it into the pan. If needed adjust slightly with the spoon to make the patties look nice.
  • Fry flat in the pan 5 minutes each side or until golden brown.
  • Serve with a some baby leaf salad and your sour cream. Enjoy :-)
