This is in honor of my mother, who used to make a non-vegan version of these when I was growing up. It's the perfect way of getting rid of leftover mashed potatoes.
Prep some breading by mixing some bread crumbs, some nutritional yeast (if desired), parsley, salt and pepper in a dish.
Heat some oil in a frying pan. Oil your hands. Spoon some vegan mashed potatoes into your hand and form a patty. Bread both sides, then cook in oil until golden.
Serve with plain soy yogurt.
You can also get creative with this by adding other ingredients or toppings as you want. Chives, spring onions, mustard, etc. So good!
