Sweet Potato Quinoa Patties with Creamy Slaw

Sweet Potato Quinoa Patties with Creamy Slaw


  • 1 small sweet potato, baked and skin removed, cut into 1" cubes
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 tablespoon cayenne
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3/4 cup nonfat yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup peeled and shredded carrots
  • 1 cup shredded cabbage


  1. In a blender, combine sweet potato, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne, lime juice, and water. Blend on high until a thick paste develops, about 2 minutes.
  2. Move sweet potato mixture to a large bowl and combine with quinoa. Form 4 equally sized patties.
  3. Coat a large skillet with olive oil and heat over medium heat. Cook patties for 3-4 minutes on each side until lightly browned. Remove from heat and place patties on paper towels to absorb excess moisture.
  4. In a large bowl, combine yogurt, honey, and lemon juice and whisk until thoroughly combined. Add carrots and cabbage and toss to coat.
  5. Add equal amounts of slaw to each of two serving bowls and top each with 2 sweet potato patties. Serve warm or chilled.
