Vegan Potato Croquettes with spicy carrot sauce and pickled onions are a tasty starter or hors d’oeuvre/ canapé.
We were inspired to use leftover mashed potatoes and maple-glazed carrots from our Thanksgiving feast to make this amazing appetizer. You don’t have to use leftovers to make this dish so if you make fresh mashed potatoes for the croquettes, you may want to let them sit overnight so they dry out just a bit.

- The first is to give three per person on the plate as a starter. If you want to do this, start by putting the Spicy Carrot puree into 3 individual dots around the plate if you use a round plate. If you are using a rectangle plate, then evenly space l three dots along the plate. Using the back of the spoon make small circles to increase the size of the dot. Place a crispy miso potato croquette in the middle of the sauce. Gently pile the pickled red onions on top of the miso potato croquettes.
- The second is to plate the Miso Potato croquettes as a canapé. Place the crispy Miso Potato Croquette on a platter. Place a small dollop of the Spicy carrot sauce on top. Gently pile the pickled red onion and chive salad on top.
