Today I had a friend over for lunch and I decided to revisit my sweet potato patties – as you may remember, the last attempt was a bit more splat than pattie!! The flavours were lovely though and it didn’t stop me eating the whole plate of them in one go!
I followed the same lines again with the mix but this time refrigerated it for longer before attempting to shape it or work with it, and added some milled, soaked nuts that I had leftover from earlier in the week. This created a gorgeous dairy free, gluten free, sugar free, healthy, tasty lunch, full of flavour and goodness and plant proteins, just lovely!!!!
I mixed together:
2 large sweet potato, peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp fresh coriander/cilantro leaf, finely chopped
4 tbsp quinoa flour
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
1 red chili, de-seeded and finely sliced
A pile of milled pistachios, walnuts and pecans
Today, I made myself stop eating it all and baked it in muffin cases for a defined shape and oven baked goodness for about half an hour at 180C fan….and OMG!!!! Am I allowed to say: I love my own food!!!!!
