sweet potato and quinoa cake with dandelion salad from my garden
The price on sweet potato has been so good lately I have heaps of them at home. I love sweet potato especially the purple ones. I often use orange variety fro raw dishes creating cous cous to spaghetti to soups etc. However I find these purple ones are better eaten cooked. They become so creamy and soft, so comforting.
I have made them into patty and served with salad from my garden.
