I found an amazing recipe using healthy ingredients. I bought a large bag of Sweet Potato’s and I needed to find different ways to use them. After some search through Pinterest I located this delicious Sweet Potato with Quinoa and green veggies recipe. I made a couple of adjustments for my own flavor taste- I switched out Kale for Spinach- just preference and I used 1 egg and added in Flax Seeds and Green Onions. I used Coconut Oil – just 1 Tablespoon. These will be soft- and you need to carefully remove them from the pan- you can easily cut into them with a fork or spoon. I didn’t use cornmeal in my recipe it will probably give it a more crunchy type of flavor. I loved this so much I”m going to work it in every week- makes a perfect side dish and can be a quick pack and go lunch. :)) I found this recipe from Yes, More Please food blogger.
Sweet Potato Kale and Quinoa Fritters
Makes 18-20 / 2”mini patties or 6 / 3.5” side patties
1 large or 2 medium sweet potatoes steamed and pureed. Makes about 3 cups
1 cup cooked Quinoa, you can use red quinoa if you prefer. Approximately 1 cup of uncooked quinoa yields 2.25 cups when cooked.
2 cups kale finely chopped or Spinach
1 egg (vegan: substitute 2 tablespoons ground flax seed + 3 tablespoons of water)
½ cup panko or any kind of plain bread crumbs. If you have gluten allergies, ground old fashion oats or almond meal will work.
1 teaspoon grated ginger
1 good pinch paprika or smoked paprika
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 teaspoon kosher salt
4-6 tablespoons grape seed oil, peanut oil, or coconut oil to pan fry them.
Mix it all up and fry or bake. :))
