Lately I’ve been looking into vegetarian cooking and the best way to make healthy, filling meals that are tasty and interesting.
I’ve wanted to make these veggie patties for a long time, so when my family asked for a vegetarian meal I thought these would be fun to try!

3-4 sweet potatoes
1.5 cups lentils

1 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
2 tsp garlic powder, paste, or 1-2 garlic cloves, diced
1/2 – 1 onion, diced
* the onion is optional; without it the patties will have a sweeter, lighter flavour
