Vegan Jamaican "Beef" Patties

Updated: Feb 24

So you want the pattie recipe...

...You shall get the pattie recipe.

Okay first things first, we shall plug the crust recipe from Gimmie Yummy

And this recipe is the truth, follow it to the T. It should pop up in a window. You can make the crust first and put it off to the side.

Next, you want to gather your mixture ingredients.


1 package of MorningStar Farms Veggie Griller Crumbles

McCormick Hot Madras Curry powder (or curry powder you can find)

Ginger powder

1 Lime

1 jalapeno

Ground cumin


Black Pepper


Red Pepper Flakes

Green Onions

I also created a Spinach mixture (bottom of recipe)

Chop half of a jalapeno, some green onions (both the whites and the greens. Zest lime and slice it (you'll be using the juice).

In a medium-high heat pan (with either a drizzle of olive oil or a quick spray of vegetable oil) cook the crumbles until it gets a nice golden brown color. Add the spinach mixture, then start adding your additional seasonings (curry powder, ground cumin, sumac, black pepper, paprika, and red pepper flakes). Taste the mixture and adjust the seasonings starting with the curry powder and cumin. Squeeze the lime juice into the pan. Add the zest and chopped green onions. Mix it well and continue to taste it. If it's too spicy add a little honey.


Okay so if followed the dough recipe you should have discs (You can also buy these at Compare Foods or your local Asian market if you want to skip it). Prep your station.

Take a disc and add 3 tablespoons of mixture to each patty.

To get that "patty" look, fold it over and press and well-oiled fork into each side. Or you can fold it like an empanada (they're related).

Place them on an oiled cookie sheet. Put them in the oven at 350 degrees until the crust is golden brown. (At this point you're only trying to cook the crust because the mixture is already cooked - that's the trick).

Tips!! These can be refrigerated and reheated in the oven at 350 degrees.

Spinach mixture:

Almost wilted spinach bunch (because no waste)

Lemon zest and juice

Italian seasoning




Olive oil

Garlic (I used at least 5 cloves)

1/4 of an onion

I placed it all in a blender and let it combine until smooth. Taste and adjust to your preference. Start with herbs first. I know you can taste if you want more salt. I have faith in you.

As always, try the recipe out and post it in the forum! Let me know what your patty looked and tasted like. Thank you for reading!!
