Keyword: quinoa cakes
Servings: 8 cakes


  • 1 lb. sweet potatoes 2 medium sized, peeled and cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 cup quinoa cooked (1/2 cup dry quinoa)
  • 1 cup Lundburg wild rice blend cooked (1/3 cup dry rice)
  • ½ cup green onions sliced
  • ½ cup dried cranberries chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon dried sage
  • ½ Tablespoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Cook your rice and quinoa according to package instructions. Set aside to cool when done cooking.
  • Steam sweet potato chunks for 20-25 minutes. Then mash/puree sweet potatoes in stand mixer. You could also use a food processor or blender. You want the sweet potato mixture to be thick and a tad chunky, not completely smooth like sweet potato soup.
  • Combine mashed sweet potatoes, cooked quinoa, cooked rice, green onions, cranberries, sage, salt and pepper.
  • Form and flatten portions of the “dough” into patties. You should get about 8 small cakes or 6 large cakes.
  • Lay the patties onto parchment paper that has been sprayed with cooking spray (or stoneware) and bake for 15-20 minutes until they’re lightly brown and crisp on the outside. Serve warm.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Reheat leftovers in the oven to serve warm or enjoy cold straight from the fridge.
