Sweet Potato, Lentil and Quinoa Patties

High in fibre, protien and flavour! These patties are super easy and totally tasty. Leftovers will store perfectly in the fridge too - for tomorrow's lunch! 

You'll need. 
1 cup of cooked lentils, 1/2 cup quinoa, 1 small sweet potato, 1 tbsp of fresh parsley, 1 tsp cumin, 2 cloves of garlic, s + p. 
Dressing - 4 tbsp natural yoghurt, 1/4 tsp cumin, juice of 1/2 lemon, s + p (just mix)

Makes 12 patties

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius. 
Chop sweet potato into chunks, drizzle with a little o-oil and s + p and put in oven for about 35 minutes, turning half way through.
Whilst this is happenin'
Cover quinoa with water (1:2 ratio), bring to boil and simmer until water is absorbed. Once done, leave the lid on for 5 minutes, off the heat. 

Add garlic to food processor and blitz til tiny, 
Add sweet potato and blitz for 5 seconds. 
Add cumin, parsley and lentils and go again for another 5 seconds.
The goal here is to still have chunks of lentils and potatoes, not a puree. 
Mix in quinoa. 

Wet your hands a little and roll mix into balls and squish into patties. 
Fry on each side in a non-stick pan for about 2-3 minutes until brown. 

Yum, you're done.
