DIRECTIONS

  • Wash and peel the sweet potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch cubes.
  • Cover them with water in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until somewhat tender, then drain.
  • Coat a large nonstick skillet/frying pan with cooking spray and heat over medium-high heat.
  • Add chopped onion and garlic to the pan, sautee 5 minutes or until tender.
  • Place sweet potato, chopped onion mixture, oats, and spices in a food processor and pulse until smooth.
  • Place the mixture into a large bowl and stir in the pecans. Divide into 6 equal portions, shaping each inch a 1/2-inch thick patty.
  • Wipe the frying pan dry with a paper towel. Heat 1 1/2 teaspoons oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add 3 patties to the pan, cook 4 minutes or until browned. Carefully turn the patties over and cook the other side for 3 minutes or until browned.
  • Repeat with the remaining oil and uncooked patties.
