The following recipe uses sweet potatoes, yam and beans.
For this recipe I used a few canned items.
However if you are feeling up to it try using homemade beans and dice fresh green chilies.
Sweet Potato Patties:
Start by cooking the yam and the sweet potato. I like to bake at 350 for 40 mins to an hour allow cooling then removing the skin or peeling and boiling the potato and yam for the same amount of time.
Blend or mash the beans until smooth.
In a large mixing bowl combine the cooled yam, sweet potato and mashed beans along with all of the ingredients except the flour and cornmeal. Mix well, mashing the yam and potato then slowly add in the flour and cornmeal.
The mixture should be a little firm but a little sticky (should be able to form into a ball or patties).
Heat a large skillet on medium high heat with olive oil (enough to coat the bottom). Carefully plop 1 to 2 tbl size balls of the potato bean mixture into the heated oil.
Allow to cook for 3 to 5 minutes on each side until lightly crisp on all sides. Remove from pan and set on a plate to continue frying all of the batter.
I served this recipe along with pineapple sauce and veggie pasta.
To Make the Pineapple Sauce:
Place all items in a mini blender and blend until smooth.
To Make the Veggie Pasta:
Clean and cut above veggies into thin strips. Bring a large pot of water to a boil (dash of salt) and boil veggies for 3 to 5 minutes, place into a strainer and serve immediately.
