I am back! It has been ages since the last time I posted on the blog. A lot has changed, I became a mom to a sweet little girl. She has taken over my life and has filled it with a lot of joy. Motherhood has had its up and downs, but I am starting to get the hang of it and learning to balance. This blog is a passion of mine and I hope to continue finding time to share recipes with you all.
These Smoky Sweet Potato Pattie were inspired by my husband. He is a complete carnivore and feeding him veggies is a hard task. I refuse to cook meat every day. Luckily I am always up for a good challenge in the kitchen. Vegetarian meals in our home have to be hearty, protein packed and flavorful. These veggie patties are all those things and an absolute favorite in our home.Sweet potatoes serve as the base for the Pattie. Caramelized onions add a umami flavor. Cumin, smoked paprika, chipotle peppers, and pickled jalapenos add a lovely smokiness and create a flavor bomb. I use white cannellini beans in this recipe because they are creamier, have a mild nutty flavor, and add meatiness to the patties. Almond flour helps to bind the patties and keep them low carb.
These patties are on the tender side but they hold their shape well. My absolute favorite way to serve them is to lay it on top of butterhead lettuce with spicy cheese melted on top, chipotle mayo and thinly sliced crispy red cabbage. You may also serve them as veggie burgers, my spicy cashew hummus makes for an excellent burger sauce.
Absolutely make these Smoky Sweet Potato Pattie, they are vegeterian, vegan, and gluten free. I promise you that you will not miss the meat(trust me if my husband doesn’t I assure you wont either).
