Sweet Potato Cakes...

No, it's not the the new pet name for my boyfriend...it's what I made for dinner tonight!!!



Tonight, my friend Anneka came over and we made these super yummy sweet potato and black bean cakes for dinner. I was really surprised at how well they came out. I found the recipe on this blog and we all know how much I love trying out new vegetarian wares. I didn't have scallions or jalapeƱos, so I just threw in some onions and called it a day.

The only issue I ran into came when we were trying to decide what to serve it with. I threw some fresh spinach on the plate and warmed up some leftover stuffed mushrooms from a recent wedding.


It seems like my guests enjoyed themselves. This recipe is only 165 calories for two cakes, which works since I am having to count calories these days. This recipe is adapted from a Martha Stewart recipe. I love Martha these days; she has much more street cred since getting out of the slammer. However, I don't like how she constantly interrupts guests on her show (oops...I guess I just ruined my chances to be one of those guests).

INTERACT: What would you serve with my sweet potato and black bean cakes?

Sweet potatoes have been our new side dish of choice for bbqs. We have been dicing them and then baking/browning them so they are like the country potatoes you get at a breakfast shop. We have cooked them on the grill too and are yummy, but hard to not burn. I just season with salt and pepper and brush with oil so they aren't too dry.
