Vegan Baked Croquette

This vegan baked croquette is healthy but also tasty and it’s very easy to make. 

Croquette is a bit like cutlet. It’s made of cooked potato with some other vegetables or meat and coated with bread crumbs. It’s usually deep fried and it can take a long time to prepare. 

Vegan Baked Croquette

I love deep fried food but I do not enjoy washing up and cleaning the greasy cooker afterwards.. it also makes me feel heavy in my stomach as well. When I first tried this recipe, I was amazed at how easy it was and there was no greasiness and oily smell all over my house after the cooking, moreover it was so tasty!! There is no frying in this recipe so it’s very simple and easy!

Prep Time 25 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 55 mins
Servings 13 croquettes


  • 3 large Potatos cut into chunks
  • 1 handful frozen sweetcorn
  • 1 tsp Dry parsley
  • 2 tbsp Vegan margarine
  • 5 tbsp Soya milk
  • 2 tbsp Nutritional yeast
  • 1/8 tsp Salt and black pepper adjust the amount according to your liking
  • 2 tbsp Vegan cheese optional
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • 45 g bread crumbs


  • In a pot, boil the potato until they are soft. Put the frozen sweetcorn in there as well so that you can defrost it at the same time!
  • When the potato is soft, drain and put back in the pot on the cooker on a low heat for a few seconds until you see no water inside, stir constantly.
  • Take the pot off the cooker and mash the potato with a folk, When half mashed, add in the margarine, 2 tbsp soya milk (we need the other 3 tbsp later), nutritional yeast, dry parsley, salt and pepper. Continue to mash until mashed completely. Don't worry if the consistency is not smooth. A little bits of potato will be quite nice in the croquette!
  • Preheat the oven to gas mark 7 (220°C). Prepare an oven tray with cooking foil and grease it with 2 tbsp of oil. Prepare the bread crumbs on a plate and the 3 tbsp of soya milk in a bowl.
  • Form the potato into the croquette shape. It could be an oval shape or a rectangle shape or circle shape. Dip a croquette in the milk quickly, put it on the plate of the bread crumbs, coat all around it and then place it on the prepared baking tray. Do the same for the rest of the croquettes. Bake for 20-30 minutes until golden. Turn over between the baking time to make sure both sides are equally golden.
