Vegan Mashed Potato Patties Stuffed with Mushrooms

These are definitely on my "must prepare" list. Can you find dill this time of year? Thyme would be good too. My mouth is watering just looking at the photo. Recipe in the link above. YUM.
I recently watched Michael Pollan's interesting documentary IN DEFENSE OF FOOD. He suggests eating real food made from scratch if possible. 
His message in a nutshell:
Eat food
Not too much.
Mostly plants.
Watch the full movie on PBS here.
This recipe is perfect.

I think I saw that show, too. He makes some compelling points. The recipe looks very good. Oddly, I recently found both a savory flavored pancake mix and potato pancake mix on clearance for 25 cents at the store. Cheap enough to take a chance on, I thought. I have tried both, and although not as good as a made from scratch pancake, they were pretty good. I decided to dice some vegetables I had on hand (probably onion, mushrooms, sweet peppers but I don't recall exactly) and cooked them in a pan as this recipe states. I also cooked some quinoa, then (for each of the two types of pancakes) mixed it altogether and cooked them as pancakes. I didn't try to stuff them. These were more like traditional pancakes in texture. I must say, they were pretty good, served with sour cream. Some recipe I saw somewhere inspired me to improvise this dish, though I can't remember where I saw it or what it was. It seemed like it would be extra simple since I used a mix, but cooking the vegs and quinoa first, then the pancakes, in batches, make it all rather time consuming. On another occasion I cooked up a bunch and refrigerated them. They were still pretty good reheated, and thus made a fast meal that day. Sorry to blather on so. Your recipe has given me new inspiration.

Ooh yum, those do look delicious. I like the idea of using thyme instead of dill. I think these would be a great side with a small piece of fish. I need all the protein I can get.
