YIELD: 10 cakes (5 servings)
2 medium baked sweet potatoes (skins discarded)
2 cups cooked quinoa
2 scallions, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tsp. cumin
1/4 cup olive oil
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet by lining with parchment paper, then set aside.
Place prepared sweet potatoes in a large bowl and use a fork to mash potatoes against sides of bowl until only small chunks of potato appear. Stir in quinoa, scallions, garlic, salt, red pepper and cumin, stirring to thoroughly combine ingredients.
Using wet hands, begin shaping quinoa mixture into palm-sized patties, placing on prepared baking sheet. Repeat until mixture is gone.
Pour olive oil into a small bowl and use a silicone brush to lightly coat the top of each patty with oil. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
Drizzle approximately 1 Tbsp. Avocado-Lime Dressing (below) on top of two patties and serve.
