Overall good recipe with a few adjustments. I read all the reviews and combined thier advice. I halved the recipe and made smaller patties 10 in all. I also added diced red pepper cilantro green chiles and chili powder. To the sour cream sauce I added red pepper and cilantro to give it a nice color. Also I found that searing the patties made them stay togther better. And don't forget to microwave the sweet potato as stated
This is my all-time favorite meatless recipe. DO NOT pre-cook the yams; you don't want a mushy cake. DO brown very well (just don't burn them like I keep doing); the thinner you make them the easier. It seems that the lack of flavor noted by others comes from UNDERCOOKING the patties. breadcrumbs or gluten-free breadcrumbs. For a gluten-free version I have used quinoa instead of And here is how I ADORE the sour cream topping: leave out the jalapeno add a generous sprinkling of salt and extra lime juice as well as some of the lime ZEST! and garnish with or mix in chopped cilantro. No blandness here.
Very very good. Try these they are worth it -- quick good and healthy. Don't skip the lime sour cream -- it goes great with the cakes. I microwaved the grated sweet potato for 1 minute before mixing in because I wasn't sure how well it cook in the broiler. Watch the time -- it did not take as long for me as it says.
These were good and I'll make them again. I shredded the sweet potato and made the sour cream topping the night before to save time. I followed the other suggestions and made these changes to the recipe: use 2 eggs in the bean mixture and also add to the basic recipe 1 can mild diced chilies 1 tsp chili powder 1 tsp coriander. I also used 1Tbsp jarred chopped jalapenos instead of fresh and it was really mild so I'll add more next time. I'll also add some cilantro next time. This recipe made 18 patties (golf ball size when I scooped them out) which I flattened. I had to move the oven rack to the middle because they burned otherwise and then I baked them for 7 min on one side and 4 on the other. They were good but needed more spice. Also next time I'm going to make them much thinner/flatter and add more salt & pepper (I only used 1/4 tsp of each).
I brought this to a very foodie (berkeley CA) potluck party and it was the first dish gone. People loved it! I added about a 1/4c chopped red bell pepper and a small can of diced green chiles which i think was perfect. Also to the lime sour cream i added a bout a 1/2 tablespoon chopped cilantro and a couple tablespoons finely chopped red bell pepper for color.
WOW! These were amazing! I made these Friday night and by Saturday afternoon they were gone! My boyfriend and sister ate them all! I made a second batch Sunday and froze them so I could have them for my lunches. I also loved the sour cream mix but my sister preferred salsa with it. I cooked them on the stove top only because the second I turn on my broiler the fire alarm goes off:( I also followed others advice and used two eggs- they were perfectly moist! Aside from that I followed the recipe exactly. I'll be making these again!
I didn't have sweet potatoes in the house and these were still very good. I added more seasonings including chili powder and used whole wheat flour in lieu of the bread crumbs. Made a really nice healthy lunch Christina and thank you!!
These were a surprise hit; we loved them! The lime sour cream was the perfect accompaniment. I did not change anything and I did not precook the sweet potato and it did not need it. I will use these as an appetizer and as a main course. Kudos!
Really tasty healthy recipe. I did not pre-cook the sweet potatoes and they turned out fine. I made about 20 small patties and I think they turned out crispier and cooked better this way. They were enjoyed by vegetarians and non-vegetarians alike at a dinner party along with fish tacos. They're also good with melted crispy cheese on top. I thought they made good leftovers just warm in a pan the next day. You must make the cream for topping it really adds to the taste! Will definitely make these again.
