Tim just made some delicious Quinoa-sweet potato pancakes yesterday and they were absolutely amazing!
These little thingies are for breakfast, lunch and dinner and a perfect alternative for your vegetarian friends< !--more-->
You can eat them either as pancakes or use them as burger patties as well. We just ate the basic version today and only added a nice Greek yogurt sauce on the side. This simple dish is perfect for the whole family. Doesn’t matter if you eat meat or not or, if you are vegetarian this tastes super good and is such a nice alternative to normal patties and to sweet pancakes!
The preparations is super easy and we are sure that you will love it! We just can’t get enough of it. So now it’s your turn. Please prepare your pan and on your mark, get set, go….. !!!
- 1 Sweetpotato
- 250 gr. Quinoa
- 500 ml Water
- 2 garlic gloves
- 1 medium onion
- 3 big eggs (slightly beaten)
- 150 gr. Parmesan cheese (grated)
- Salt and Pepper
- 180 gr. bread crumbs
For the Dip:
- 250 ml Greek yogurt
- 1 small garlic glove
- lemon cest
- Juice of a half lemon
- Salt and Pepper
Rinse quinoa in cool water so we loose the musty smell & taste. Pour quinoa in a pot and cover with the water. Bring water & quinoa in the pan to boil and reduce the heat to a small level. Let cook for 15 minutes till the liquid is nearly gone. Let it cool down.
Meanwhile, chop the garlic and onion very fine and chop the sweet potato in small cubes. They shouldn’t be too big. Melt butter in a heated pan and move all the chopped ingredients into it. Cook till the sweet potato is soft enough.
Place quinoa, sweet potato, onion & garlic and all the left ingredients into a bigger bowl and mix. Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes. The breadcrumbs absorb the liquid in our mixture.
Form some patties and put them on a dish plate with baking paper. All goes in the fridge for around 20 minutes.
As you’ve enough time, shortly create the dip. It’s fairly simple: Just combine all the ingredients and yo’re done. After the fridge it’s the pans turn, so move all the patties to a hot pan and bake. When the patties are golden-brown. they’re ready!
We are very big fans of these Quinoa-Sweetpotato pancakes as they are healthy, easy to prepare and super delicious. They are filling as well so you can eat 2 pieces maximum.
So next time we will also try them as a Burger again and will present them to our friends. We are sure they will love them.
By the way, did you know that Quinoa has a lot of positive nutritional aspects. It’s indicate that raw (uncooked) quinoa is a rich source of protein, dietary fiber, several B vitamins and dietary minerals, nutrients whose contents are substantially reduced by cooking. However in a 100 g (3.5 oz) serving, cooked quinoa provides 120 calories and is a moderate source (10-19% of the daily value, DV) of protein, dietary fiber, folate, and the dietary minerals, iron, zinc, magnesium, phosphorus, and manganese (table)).
It is gluten-free and considered easy to digest.
So we hope you love it as well and we will be happy to hear from you regarding this recipe. Do you like it? Do you have suggestions? Please let us know if you like them and share your feedback with us 🙂
