Sweet Potato & Quinoa Cakes

These sweet potato & quinoa cakes are perfect for a meatless meal! Serve them over a big salad for lunch or with roasted veggies for dinner.

As we get into fall and the holiday season, a lot of the comfort foods we crave centered around meat & cheese. That’s why we love balancing it out with a few “meatless” meals per week.

Unlike animal foods, plant-based foods contain fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients. These compounds help keep our immune systems strong and work within our bodies to prevent disease. Incorporating more plant-based meals in your diet is an easy way to ensure you are getting all of those nutrients that your body loves!
