Thank you New Leaf Community Markets for this yummy, healthy recipe – I love it! Hope you all enjoy, too!

2 c. beets, grated
1 1/2 c. quinoa, cooked and cooled
3/4 c. toasted sunflower seeds
1/2 c. onion, minced
1/2 c. flour of choice
1/2 c. bread crumbs
1/2 c. olive oil
3 Tbs. parsley minced
4 cloves garlic minced
3 Tbs. Tamari
1/4 tsp. cayenne
1/2 lb. garnet yams, steamed and cooled (I use the purple potatoes instead of the yams)
sea salt to taste

1. Peel the yams. (You don’t need to peel the potatoes). Combine all the ingredients and mix well. Press tightly into uniform patties. Bake at 350 degrees on parchment lined sheet pan in a preheated oven for 20 minutes, until golden brown.
