Spiced Quinoa and Sweet Potato Fritters

spiced quinoa and sweet potato fritters

I'm yet to find someone who doesn't love these. They're so delicious! Admittedly they require a bit of advance preparation, in terms of cooking the quinoa and sweet potato but in a pinch you could use pre-cooked quinoa or microwave the sweet potato. These days, I tend to make a big bowl of quinoa at the weekend ready for quick working from home meals during the week- it's so nutritious and as it's such a great flavour carrier, I can switch up my lunches by adding different ingredients and accompaniments so it never gets boring. These are wonderful served hot with a chilli mayo dip or some smashed avo, but I also enjoy adding any leftovers to a lunchbox along with some salad.

Three great health benefits: good source of plant-based protein, promotes healthy skin, beneficial for eye health

Makes 5

The flesh of 1 cooked sweet potato (approx 140g)
150g cooked quinoa
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tomato puree
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp chilli flakes
1/4 tsp ground turmeric
Sea salt and black pepper

1) Place the sweet potato in a mixing bowl and mash with a fork to break up.
2) Add the remaining ingredients, except the olive oil and mix to thoroughly combine.
3) Divide the mixture into 5 (or less if you'd prefer larger patties) and shape into patties.
4) Warm the olive oil in a frying pan over a medium high heat on the hob. Fry the patties for approximately 10 minutes, turning halfway through the cooking time, until crisp.
