Last week was spring break, so I didn’t get a chance to cook that much However, I came back refreshed and ready to cook! Apparently there was a lot brewing in my brain because what occurred when I made these patties….Who knows where it came from. They taste fabulous, are packed with nutrition, and really simple!
Sweet Potato Patty
1 cooked XLarge Sweet Potato (or two small/medium)
1 13oz can Chickpeas
2 TBSP coconut oil
1 TBSP Trader Joe’s South African Smoke Blend
1 tsp nutritional yeast
1/2 tsp curry powder
1 TBSP ground flaxseed
Cook your sweet potato any way you like to get it soft and mashable on the inside. You just need it so that you are able to scoop out the orange “meat” for the patty. Here’s how I cook mine!
Wash your extra large sweet potato off with a paper towel(Just to remove the dirt) Then stab it multiple times with a sharp knife to make steam slits. Wrap it in a dampened paper towel and place it in the microwave for about 7-9 minutes (depending on the size) After it is cooked through and soft, slice the potato in half and let it cool off.
Preheat oven to 350*
Take out your can of chickpeas, drain and wash them. Scoop out the orange “meat” of your sweet potato into a food processor and pour in your chickpeas as well. Add in your two TBSP of coconut oil, and pulse until it is mostly mixed except for a few whole chickpeas.
Scoop out the mash from your food processor into a medium sized bowl. At this point you can add in the rest of your spices and mix until well combined.
Spread out foil on a cookie sheet and spray with cooking spray. (Make sure your hands are washed at this point) Grab handfuls of your chickpea/sweet potato mash, and form into patties. You should end up with about 6 medium sized servings. Place them on the cookie sheet and into the oven for 15 minutes.
After the first 15 minutes, take out the patties and flip them. Place them back in the oven for another 15 minutes.
At this point, take them out of the oven and let them cool for a minute or two before eating.
1 TBSP garlic hummus
1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
Mix. Spread on patty. Enjoy a slight piece of heaven.
These are absolutely wonderful, and I really hope you make them!!!
Please leave me comments on how yours turned out:)
