Sweet Potato Zucchini Patties
|Simply sweet potato and delicious!|
To get started, gather some pattie building blocks from your fridge, pantry, or leftovers bin!
|Plus a few more...|
3/4 cooked large sweet potato (or 1 medium)
1/2 medium zucchini (cut or spiralized)
1 handful of chopped/shredded spinach
2 TBSP lite coconut milk (or alternate dairy product)
1 TBSP coconut flour
1 tsp ground chia seeds
1 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp tumeric powder
Begin by either cooking your sweet potato in the microwave until it is soft, or using leftovers like I did. I left the peel on my tater and just cut it up into shreds for extra texture, but you're welcome to just use the insides as well. Then, cut your zucchini into thin strips with a spiralizer or regular kitchen knife. After that, all you need to do is measure, mash your ingredients in a bowl and mix! Be warned - this patty, from the veggies and the milk, will be moist!

|In clockwise order!|
I've placed them on salads with roasted veggies and avocado, topped my pizza with torn chunks, and snacked on them alone. You could also eat them as a vegetarian burger or as a bun or partner to another form of protein! Since they are mainly vegetables, these would also make a wonderful quick side to most meals! My advice? Get creative with it - to my taste buds, sweet potato and zucchini nicely compliment most any food!
