Sweet Potato Patties

Sweet Potato Patties created by AZPARZYCH

This sweet potato patties recipe is one of my favorites. I use brown rice a lot in my healthy vegan recipes. It is a rich source of lots of nutrients, and makes for a much lighter patty than a bean-based veggie burger. This recipe is simple and delicious. It allows for a lot of variation in seasoning, and can easily be made with potato rather than sweet potato for a more neutral flavor. I've kept things really simple here to focus attention on the sweet potato.

ingredients

directions

  • Be sure to have your rice cooked & cooled before you begin. This can happen at dinner the night before, at breakfast, or an hour before dinner. As long as the rice has cooled, it will be sticky enough to make into a patty.
  • Stir together the rice, sweet potato, onion and salt in a large bowl. Allow it to sit for a few minutes, so that the salt can draw the moisture out of the potato & onion. Stir in enough flour to make the batter sticky, adding a spoonful or two of water if necessary. Form the mixture into tight balls, and squish slightly into a patty form.
  • Heat a pan on medium, then add enough oil to coat the underside of each patty. Allow them to cook for 7-10 minutes, then flip. Cook another 5-7 minutes, and serve.
  • These sweet potato brown rice patties can be served on their own, garnished with salsa and lettuce, on a bun as a burger, or many other ways. In the photo, I served them alongside some steamed kale, dressed with tamari and sesame seeds.

    How does this recipe change with using already cooked and mashed sweet potatoes?

    Would this be a Red, yellow and green container on the 21 Day Fix?

    Have been eyeing this recipe up for quite a while and so glad I tried and will repeat. I used butternut squash (raw) and it worked fine. I did add more than a pinch of salt and pepper. Can see using different spices depending upon rest of meal. Maybe cumin? Mine did come out a tad oily but I did use more than a teaspoon of oil so my mistake. We had ours with recipe#512904 and the two complimented each other well. In fact put some of the dressing from salad on patty and was good but looked odd. Thank you for sharing.
