Hey ya little nuggets! Just take a look at these beautiful little guys…. Vegan Quinoa & Sweet Potato Patties turned “bun” for those of you who don’t want to eat carbs as much as I do!  This “burger” if you will is not easily eaten with your hands, so feel free to use a knife a fork…..


The Creamy Cashew sauce is the perfect pairing for this delicious and fluffy patty!


The flavours are so powerful, and nutritious.  Filled with great anti-inflammatory benefits and does not leave you feeling guilty like Mayo might do!


The ingredients are readily available to all you beautiful people, and the recipe literally requires around 10 minutes of your time (minus cashew soaking), a sauté pan, and a food processor!


Some of you may be asking why soak your cashews? Well first of all by soaking them it is much easier on your food processor, and on your belly! It activates the enzymes, and breaks down the phytic acid so it can be absorbed properly. AKA SOAKING HELPS DIGESTION! So I highly recommend that you soak all your  nuts and seeds before consumption!

This recipe is super rich, creamy and versatile.  Try it on salads, in pastas, as a dip with veg, or with eggs on toast! The possibilities are endless!

I am off to work on the Kombucha Recipe I promised all of you, so ill be back soon!
