Vegan Parsnip and Leek Hash Browns.

Here is a quick one. Remember, I don't really measure stuff so just chuck it in and go. I like to spray my parsnip and leek hash browns with a little lemon juice and serve with a giant green salad or put them out for a shared lunch dish.


  • 2 grated parsnips.
  • One thinly sliced leek.
  • Half a cup of flour.
  • One tablespoon of ground chia seeds with about a quarter of a cup of water.
  • Enough water to mix to make it all stick.
  • Salt and pepper.
  • Oil for frying. 

Grind your chia mix if you haven't already. I use a bullet blender to make mine. 
Throw the rest of the ingredients (except the oil) into a bowl and mix together to make a mixture that sticks together but isn't runny. 
Take your frypan and add some oil over a medium to low heat. Wait for it to heat up. Make your patties and place them in the pan. You should be able to make about 6. 
Put a lid over the pan or just place an oven tray across the top like I do mine because I don't have a fancy lid. 
Check the bottoms of the patties and when they are quite brown, turn them over and fry the other side until that is brown too. 

Hell yeah. xx

PS Don't forget that I currently have a competition running to giveaway a copy of Lindsay S. Nixon's book The Happy Herbivore's Guide to Plant-Based Living. To enter, leave a comment on the blog, Facebook page or instagram post. 

Happy days! x

    2. I'm a big fan of grinding up chia with water as an egg replacer. It works so well. 😊

  2. Thanks for sharing this super easy recipe, it even looks like a healthy meal. Will give it a try for sure. Cheers!
