I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Sweet Potato, Quinoa and Black Bean Patties

If you are looking to try a meat free version of the good old meat patty, this one is as easy as can be. Filled with lots of good things that won't leave you feeling stuffed like that big old meat one would. 

1 cup mashed sweet potato
1 cup cooked quinoa
1/2 cup shredded carrots
1 cup black beans (1/2 cup whole, 1/2 cup mashed)
3/4 cup chopped onion
2 tsps ground cumin
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
6-8 basil leaves, finely chopped

Just combine everything and form into patties.
Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake at 425 F for 30 minutes, flipping over halfway through.
As you can see here, I served mine with salad and creamy pasta, but you can definitely stick it in a bun and top with your favourite burger toppings.
