These Sweet Potato Quinoa Patties with Jalapeño Lime Ranch are delicious AND nutritious! Plus, I’ve added some optional substitutions to make the patties dairy free, gluten free, and vegan.

These patties are easy to put together, and have a slight crunch on the outside. I’m always a fan of some crunch! Of course you could top it with a different sauce, especially if you’re going vegan or dairy free, but I love this slightly spicy, creamy, tangy sauce to go with it. They’re versatile too- you could combine all the ingredients and store them in your fridge, then cook them when you need them. Like in your salads, for breakfast, or all on it’s own- they should be good in the fridge for about the next five days.

My favorite way to fix these up is with a fried egg, bacon, avocado, and sauce drizzled on top. I made this for my family a couple weeks ago, and in my husband’s words- ‘the only problem I had with them was that there wasn’t more!’. I’ll call that a win!

This makes a killer brunch recipe!

Sweet Potato Quinoa Patties & Jalapeño Lime Ranch
In a medium bowl, combine 1 cup of mashed Sweet Potatoes, 1 cup of cooked quinoa, and 3 tbsp All-Purpose Flour or almond meal
Then sprinkle on top and mix in 1/2 tsp of Salt and Pepper, 1 tsp of Garlic and Onion Powder, 1/4 tsp of Paprika, and 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese (or 1 tbsp of Nutritional Yeast + 3 tbsp flour or almond meal)
Pour a generous amount of olive oil in a large skillet, then heat on your stovetop to medium high heat. Form the mixture into patties (makes about 8 2-inch circles), and cook them in a hot pan until browned on each side, about 3 minutes.
To make the Jalapeño Lime Ranch, combine all of the ingredients in a food processor- 1/3 cup of Buttermilk, 1 cup plain yogurt or sour cream, 3-5 tablespoon canned diced jalapeño, 1 tbsp Ranch Seasoning, Salt and pepper to taste, 1 Ripe Avocado, 1/4 cup Lime Juice. Pour over patties. Enjoy!
  • To cut down on time, you can get a bag of frozen sweet potatoes that you steam in the microwave, just cook them for a few extra minutes to make them easy to mash.
