Oct 17, 2023

Number of servings: 8 Per serving: 1 cake


2 large sweet potatoes (2 cups mashed)
2 cups cooked quinoa
2 eggs
3 cloves garlic, minced
1½ cups shredded Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons olive oil


Preheat the oven to 190°C. Pierce the sweet potato with a knife and bake until tender, about 45 minutes.
Cook the quinoa. Allow both the quinoa and sweet potato to cool. Peel the sweet potato and mash it.
In a large bowl, mix together sweet potato, quinoa, eggs, garlic, cheese, parsley, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Take approximately ¼ cup portions and form into patties.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Cook the cakes until they become golden brown on both sides. Repeat the process with the remaining oil and quinoa mixture. Bake the cakes in the oven for 5 minutes to ensure they are heated through.

Tip: These cakes can be prepared in advance and frozen for later use.
