Sweet potato and Quinoa patties


The fiancé was in the mood for burgers so I decided to try these sweet potato and quinoa patties. They work perfectly just as they are, but you can also use them as veggie burgers. What I love about them is that they’re simply delicious, protein packed and antioxidant rich! If you want to save some for later I suggest you wrap each patty individually and store in the freezer.

Servings: 6 Ready in: 60 min


  • 2 sweet potatoes, medium size
  • 2 1/2 dl cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 dl fresh parsley, thyme or cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 dl sunflower seeds
  • 3 tbsp flaxseeds
  • 1 1/2 dl rolled oats
  • 1/2 tsk bell pepper powder
  • pinch of cayenne pepper
  • sea salt and black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C.
  2. Peel the sweet potatoes and slice them into about 1 cm thin rounds. Add these to a baking sheet and bake for about 20-25 minutes, until thoroughly cooked and tender.
  3. Meanwhile, cook quinoa according to package instructions.
  4. In a food processor, combine parsley (or other herbs), garlic and sunflower seeds and pulse until smooth.
  5. Combine ground flaxseed with 1/2 dl water and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
  6. Put cooked quinoa, baked sweet potatoes and rolled oats in the food processor. Pulse until combined.
  7. Add the parsley mix, flaxseed and spices. Pulse several times until smooth.
  8. Lower the oven heat to 175 degrees.
  9. Form the mixture into 6 balls and flatten into patties.
  10. Place patties onto parchment paper and bake in the oven for 20 minutes. Then flip the patties and cook for another 15-20 minutes until thoroughly firm.
  11. Let patties cool before serving.

Serve with your favourite side dishes. I chose fresh greens, avocado and slices of red onion.
