Carrot Patties

  • 1 1/2 cups grated carrot (3 carrots) 
  • 3/4 cup finely chopped celery (2 stalks)
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs 
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup picked fresh chervil 
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 
  • 1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt, drained
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2 cup grated onion (1 onion), squeezed of juice in cheesecloth or paper towel


Combine the carrot, celery, onion, bread crumbs, eggs, chervil, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Press about 1 1/2 tablespoons mixture between hands to form sixteen 2-inch patties, and place on a tray.

Place a large nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Coat with nonstick cooking spray. Place 8 patties in the skillet, and cook until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a serving platter. Repeat with remaining patties. Serve each with a dollop of drained yogurt.
