Sweet Potato Patties Recipe

Cooked rice adds texture to these sweet potato and cumin flavoured patties. We like to serve them with sweet chilli sauce and a salad. They could also be used to make veggie burgers.

Makes 8 patties.

We use a 20ml tablespoon and 250ml measuring cup for all of our recipes.

18g (1/3 cup) fresh breadcrumbs
50g (1/4 cup) rice
250g peeled and roughly chopped sweet potato (kumara)
1/2 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup frozen mixed corn kernels and baby peas
30g (1/3 cup) grated parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 large egg yolk (we use eggs with a minimum weight of 59g)
1 tablespoon chopped flat leaf parsley
Salt and pepper
1 tablespoon oil, for frying
Sweet chilli sauce, to serve

To make the breadcrumbs, place some day-old bread in a food processor and process to make fine crumbs.

Cook rice in boiling water according to the directions on the package. Drain well. ©

Boil, steam or microwave sweet potato until tender.

In a large bowl, roughly mash the cooked sweet potato with a fork.

Add the breadcrumbs, rice, onion, pea and corn mix, parmesan, cumin, garlic, egg yolk, parsley, salt and pepper and stir until just combined.

Form mixture into eight patties.

Heat oil in a heavy based, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Cook patties for about four minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.

Serve patties hot. Cooked patties can be stored in the refrigerator and reheated in the oven or microwave before serving.

Yummy! I made this recipe and it was really nice. You can make the patties any size, for a snack or for a main meal. Delicious and vegetarian as well.

Another successful recipe -- thanks! These were a hit with everyone, especially my vegetarian daughter-in-law. I doubled the recipe and made 20 small patties to supplement other dishes at lunch. They disappeared in minutes.

Have just discovered this blog! Mmmm! I tried these sweet potato patties the other day. Mine kind of fell apart for some reason--but I generally tend to mess up anything that is to be made into a patty.:-P They were really yummy and a great texture. Thanks!

These were a great hit, I also added some shallots and found that a tablespoon of flour added to the mix made them less likely to fall apart. Definately will be a regular in our house.

I love this recipe, it is such a health alternative to having meat!

When I make these patties, I also add boiled/steamed brussel sprouts or spinache, as well as chop up some mushrooms. Then i add curry to the mix and broil them.

Wonderful served on a bed of rice, rather than inside the mix..

MmMmMm .oO(I wonder how it would taste on the bbq in a tin foil wrap)

Can these be frozen either before or after cooking, then reheated to serve later?

Hi Claire

We haven't ever frozen these patties. We will freeze some next time we make them and report back on their suitability for freezing.
