Fennel Sprout Cakes

The fennel and mustard sprouts give these cakes a pleasant tang. Serve them with creamy mayo for a balancing effect. You can prepare these sprout cakes in the morning and have them for dinner. They can be dehydrated for 8 to 12 hours without turning them. That means if you put them in the dehydrator before you leave for work, they will be ready to eat when you get home. If you make them at bedtime, you’ll have warm sprout cakes ready for breakfast.
