I’m kinda obsessed with all things burger and patty-ish these days. You can enjoy them in between a bun or you can just eat them with a fork with some awesome tasting sauce like I did with these Sweet Potato & Millet Patties with Curry Cilantro Mayo!
Before I talk food, I need to talk weather. Usually weather is a topic that everyone can agree on and be friendly about, but I just need a second to complain about the fact that it has been 80 degrees here for the past few days. When I called my family on Thanksgiving and I told them that it was 80 degrees here, they were all pretty jealous and told me to be quiet. But, really, I wasn’t bragging at all!
I don’t necessary love really cold weather and I love that we don’t have to shovel snow and that we have sunshine everday, but for god’s sake, can we please have some temperatures that are below 80 degrees when it is December?! Ok, I think I’m done with my rant now… But I’m sure I’ll be ranting again in a few days when it is 60 degrees and I’m way too cold! I swear, living in the dessert does some strange things to your body!
Now, onto the food! Ever since I made these sweet potato fries with curry cilantro mayo, I’ve been totally hooked on the sweet potato and curry combo. These patties are super easy to make. All you have to do is throw some roasted sweet potato (my favorite way to prepare them!) and some millet into the food processor with a few spices and then stir in the lentils. Then, use your hands to form them into cakes, brown them up in a pan with some olive oil, dunk into some curry cilantro mayo and you will be in heaven! Trust me, you won’t even be thinking about all the cold weather and snow coming your way. (PS, I’m so jealous about all that cold weather and snow coming your way!)Print
The best Christmas present ever!
