The IC Diet can make your list of edible food seem piddly. Even more so if you're having a flare. To me, this calls for experimentation. You have GOT to get into the kitchen and come up with new kinds of food from the same old ingredients. Today I made up a recipe for carrot patties. What on earth is that? When I was a kid my mom used to make zucchini patties. I won't give you their recipe right now, since I'm feeling a bit lazy. But suffice it to say it involves grating vegetables and frying them in oil. But I wanted something new, something I'd never eaten before. Something I'd never even heard of. Voila! Carrot Patties.
2 Large potatoes peeled & grated
2 Medium to large carrots, peeled & grated
1 sleeve of saltine crackers (I believe Ritz are also fairly safe. If you have another brand on hand, I'm sure that will work also)
Salt to taste
In a bowl combine all ingredients until they're nice and soggy.
In a frying pan, scoop a fist full of your mixture into very hot oil and smash down flat with a spatula. Fry on medium heat. Allow patties to fry with a lid on for about 45 seconds-2 min. Remove lid and turn your patty. Do not replace lid or your patty will be soggy. Remove from heat--hopefully you have not burnt any sides--careful because this is easy to do. Much easier than burning regular hashbrowns--in my opinion.
Serve and enjoy!
You can eat these with rice or by themselves. When I ate them, I found they were tasty, if a little bland. I would suggest serving them with a chicken or country gravy.
If only it was as easy to banish hunger by rubbing the belly as to masturbate.
