Tuna Sweet Potato Burgers

This is one thing I totally made up.ย  Knowing that fishcakes occasionally have potatoes in them, I reckoned the paleo equivalent will be made with sweet potatoes. See the genius there, u-huh! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Had some leftover uncooked sweet-pots from the supper club and a few canned tuna in the cupboard so I tested my hypothesis. Hereโ€™s how it went:

2 large-ish sweet potatoes, grated
3 cans of tuna, drained
3-4 eggs, depending on size
Salt and pepper

Before I start, can I just say, a food processor is a gift from the heavens. Dunno how I survived without it. Grates food in less than a minute!

Moving on, squeeze out some excess water from the sweet-pot and transfer into a microwavable bowl. Zap for about 3-4 minutes to partially cook.

Thereafter, mix in the tuna, eggs, salt and pepper. Form patties. Pan-fry in a little oil, making sure not to move them until they have somehow set (maybe after 2-4 minutes, depending on the size of the patties.)

Serve with steamed veg drizzled with sesame oil. Maybe with a bit of lemon or lime. Quick and simple. ๐Ÿ˜€

 

PS. Forgive the picture quality. They tasted good though!
