A veggie cake that is packed with nutrition and taste is what is being served up in this recipe. Some may refer to this as a potato cake, but there are so many other substantial ingredients in this recipe that a veggie cake is a much better description. A great detail of this recipe is that many of the ingredients can be found in your cupboard. Keep in mind that you can always use fresh vegetables, but canned vegetables certainly cuts down preparation time. Always make sure to purchase ‘salt free’ or ‘no salt added’ cans of vegetables. They are just as tasty and much better for you.
