recipes Aug 28, 2023

This recipe is part of my series to support you increasing your dietary iron consumption. 

In Australia, over 1.1 million people are iron deficient. And approximately 2 billion people around the world are iron deficient. Managing your iron levels can improve your energy, support your immune system and improve your general well-being. You can read more about boosting your iron levels naturally here.


Carrot Sesame Patties

Serves 8

Prep time 30 minutes

Cook time 30 minutes


What you need

3 Carrots (grated)

330 grams Chickpeas (cooked, drained and rinsed)

1 Sweet Onion (diced)

2 tablespoons Tahini

2 Garlic (cloves, minced)

½ teaspoon Cumin

1 Egg

½ cup Oats

½ cup Almond Flour

4 tablespoons Sesame Seeds

Sea Salt & Black Pepper (to taste)

2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil

180 grams Baby Spinach

1 Avocado (peeled and sliced)

60 grams Goat Cheese (crumbled)


What to do

Place grated carrot, chickpeas, onion, tahini, garlic, cumin and egg in food processor and blend until a creamy consistency forms. If needed, add 1 tbsp of warm water to loosen mixture up. Transfer into a large mixing bowl.


Add in oats, almond flour and sesame seeds into mixing bowl. Season with sea salt and pepper to taste. Mix well with a spatula or clean hands.


Form mixture into even patties with your hands. If mixture seems too moist, add in some extra oats to firm it up. Place patties on wax paper. (Store in the freezer if not cooking right away.)


When ready to cook, heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook patties in skillet for about 8 minutes per side or until golden brown.


Serve on top of a bed of greens topped with avocado slices and goat cheese.



To help keep it simple for you and remove confusion over what to eat, I created seasonal self-guided Nutrition Resets. These include recipes using seasonal produce, meal plans to follow (if that is your thing), nutrition education, mindfulness practices to manage stress and a journal if you want to explore your relationship with food and your health and well-being a little deeper. You can learn more about them here. 

And as always, remember your reasons, your health, your mission and the people you love.
