  • 2 hefty sweet potatoes

  • 1 can of black beans

  • 100g of quinoa

  • 1 tsp of olive oil

  • 1 onion, finely chopped

  • A selection of spices of your choice to taste. Emily likes:

  • A sprinkle of ground coriander

  • A smattering of smoked paprika

  • A pinch of dried chipotle chillies

  • 1/2 tsp chipotle paste

  • A pinch of dark brown sugar

  • A 1/2 handful of fresh coriander

  • Zest and juice of a lime


  • Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

  • Peel, chop and boil or bake the sweet potatoes until soft.

  • Gently fry the onion with the mix of dry spices in the oil. 

  • In a bowl, mix the mashed up potatoes, beans, quinoa, onion and spices, sugar, fresh coriander, chipotle paste and lime.

  • Shape into 4 patties and refrigerate for half an hour or so. 

  • Bake on a non-stick tray or silicone sheet until golden, around 20-25 minutes. 

  • Make sure you have an excellent fish slice to get them off in one piece! 



  • Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and carotenoids.

  • Black beans are full of potassium, folate, vitamin B6.
