Two weeks ago Corey and I put on a cocktail evening to share our plans for the year and our business with all our friends and family. I love any excuse to get people together and make beautiful food for them. I made everything pretty much from scratch and although it was quite a big task I had so much fun doing it.
I photographed these Gluten Free Thai Chicken Patties because I actually made them a few days ahead of time and froze them so that all I needed to do on the day was to defrost them and heat them through. I did this with a few of the nibbles and it was such a stress saver on the day when preparing everything that needed to be fresh.
You can use normal breadcrumbs to bind the ingredients together but I find substituting the breadcrumbs 1:1 with almond meal has exactly the same effect and cuts out gluten for those who are sensitive.
Coconut oil is awesome to fry them in because it adds great flavor and it has a high smoking point so it is a very healthy fat to cook with.
