Meatless Monday !

Happy Meatless Monday!  

I decided that the perfect weekly tradition to kick off this blog is a recipe every week that is completely meat free!

       So this week I decide to kick it off with Quinoa and Sweet Potato Patties.

Which ended up being completely VEGAN! 

I’d always wanted to make these, and today I finally dove in and did it! I’ve also learned that 99% of the time, the food I make isn’t always pretty, but it tastes damn good. This is no exception. pixlr_20161212190750663.jpg

Ingredients you’ll need.

  1. 2 cups of baked sweet potatoes, skins removed and mashed. ( about 2 medium sweet potatoes)
  2. 2 cups of cooked Quinoa. ( I used Roasted Red Pepper Quinoa)
  3. 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  4. 1 tsp of garlic powder
  5. 1 tsp of onion powder
  6. sea salt
  7. earth balance vegan butter
  8. optional- Ms. Dash. I use it because I absolutely love it and it adds flavor!

Preparation 

  • Prepare Quinoa according to package instructions
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees, pierce sweet potatoes with fork, and bake for 45 in the oven, or until soft. Another option, which is what I personally did. I cubed up the sweet potatoes and boiled them in the water until soft.
  • Add mashed up sweet potatoes, Quinoa all other dry ingredients and olive oil in a bowl together and mix well.
  • Form mixture into balls the size of your choice, flatten into a patty and cook in the earth balance butter in a pan for about 2 minutes on each side( depending on the size of your patties)
  • and ENJOY!

 

To go with these patties I made a package of Veggie Fries. They’re Kale and Tuscan Herb flavored, completely vegan, Gluten Free and delicious!

I launched Miss Raee in 2016 purely for a twenty-something girl who is trying to figure it all out, who loves to write and finally decided to share it. I’ve had a hell of a time figuring out what I wanted this blog to be, and I’ve eventually narrowed it down to that I want this blog to be ME, every weird, quirky, loveable aspect of me and even more importantly anyone who also sees themselves as that weird, quirky, loveable person who might love plant-based cooking, multiple fandoms including Star Wars, Supernatural, Greys Anatomy, DC TV, Marvel, The Magicians and SO much more. I found myself being an advocate for mental health, for animals, for the environment, and for equality. I’m a big believer in the vibes you bring, the power of music, and how important the storytelling of books and movies and TV can be. If I’m not on the blog, you can find me sharing selfies and nonsense on Instagram @/amandaraeex3 and live-tweeting and putting in my two cents on twitter at @/amandaraee_x3, so I hope you’ll tag along with me on here and my social media and enjoy all the weird, quirky things we all love.
