(makes 2 patties)

  • 1/2 cup of cooked quinoa. Click here to learn how to cook it and measure it.
  • 1/2 of a cooked skinless medium sweet potato (mashed)
  • 1/2 cup of chopped kale
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion (*onion can be sautéed before adding to mixture depending on preference)
  • 1 egg

Mix all ingredients. Form 2 patties.  Place both patties in a skillet (medium heat) using 1 TBSP of coconut oil*. Brown for approximately 1-2 minutes on each side.

*Friendly reminder: If you use coconut oil, then make sure you add this into your final calories. I recommend using PAM nonstick cooking spray, unless you want to factor an extra 130 calories and 14 grams of fat of coconut oil into your daily caloric intake! The coconut oil changes this recipe from 278 calories and 7.3 g of fat to 408 calories and 21.3 g of fat!  DO NOT ASSUME THAT OLIVE OIL OR COCONUT OIL ON YOUR SKILLET DO NOT COUNT TOWARDS YOUR DAILY INTAKE! If you are not losing weight following my system, then maybe it's time to take a closer look at what you are putting in your mouth compared to what you are tracking for your daily calories. Do you have to demonize olive oil and coconut oil? Absolutely not! But you do have to count it towards your calorie input!
