Sweet Potato and Kale Patties

In this recipe, I used sweet potatoes instead of potatoes because the former is less starchy and far more nutritious. To add to the healthfulness, I threw in handfuls of kale. And then, to accompany these patties, I made a spicy chickpea sauce. The hot and sour sauce is just perfect with the sweet potatoes and the slightly bitter kale. Talk of yin and yang. This is a terrifically healthy recipe with tons of protein, fiber, Vitamins A and C, and a lot more per serving.

Sweet Potato and Kale Patties

Serves

12

Cook Time

30

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes, roasted in a 350-degree F oven until a knife pierced in the center goes cleanly through without any resistance.It took about an hour in my oven. Peel the sweet potatoes, discard the skins, and mash the flesh. You should have approximately two cups.
  • 2 cups kale
  • ½ cup coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp garam masala
  • 1½ cups chickpea flour
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • ½ to 1 tsp cayenne
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil

Preparation

  1. Chop the kale and coriander in a food processor along with some salt. Let it stand about 15 minutes, then squeeze out any excess water.
  2. Mix the kale and coriander with the mashed sweet potatoes, ginger, garam masala, salt as needed, and cayenne. Add the chickpea flour, ¼ cup at a time, until the sweet potato mixture is firm enough to form patties. It will still be pretty soft, but it’s ready when a ball formed by rolling the mixture between your palms remains firm.
  3. Heat the oil in a non-stick or cast-iron skillet.
  4. To form the patties, divide the mixture into 12 portions. Wet the palms of your hands with some water and shape each portion into a flat, round patty about 2 inches across.
  5. Drop each patty, right after you shape it, into the skillet. Cook each side until golden-brown, on medium heat. Do not crowd the pan. You might have to do this in batches.
  6. Remove the patties to a plate.
