Quinoa Yam Kale Cakes

These are one of those recipes that requires a little prep and work but the pay off is huge
You can freeze these and bring them out when needed
Having healthy food ready and available plays a huge role on how successful you can be at healthy eating.  These cakes can be crumbled on a salad or yummy filling to a Nori roll or rice paper wrap
Pair with a light soup
OR just grab a puck for quick on the go food
These are one of those 'you will thank yourself later' things


2 Cups Cooked Quinoa
2 Cups Baked Sweet Potato
6-7 Large Kale leaves
2 TBSP Lemon Juice
1 1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp ground Cumin
1 tsp ground Coriander
2 Cloves Garlic, Minced
1/4 tsp ground Cinnamon
**about 1/2 Cup Garbonzo Bean Flour (cooking option #2)

Roast your sweet potato in oven @ 350 degrees for 30-40 mins
Cook your Quinoa at the same time

Chop Kale in a food processor or with elbow grease until it is finely chopped

In a large glass Bowl mash sweet potato (remove skins)
Add Kale & Quinoa Mix well
Add Lemon Juice, Salt, Cumin, Coriander, garlic, & Cinnamon
Mix well
Now you need to assemble your little Patties
I made my little blobs and lined them up on a baking sheet lined with a silicone Mat, baked them in the oven for 20 mins @ 350  This creates more like Quinoa Yam BITES ...I like them this way
BUT you can create fabulous little patties and cook them on your stove top in a pan coated with some lovely coconut oil and they turn out nicely too
**For the Stove Top method it will help to get them un-sitcky this is what you would use the Gabonzo bean flour for.  Simply dump the flour on a large plate, make you patty and place it in the flour coating both sides
Heat your Pan or skillet and cook your patties about 10 minutes on each side until golden brown
