Sweet Potato Cakes w Black Bean Salsa

So lately I have been obsessed with sweet potatoes.
I saw this delicious recipe on pinterest, and it came from:

I adapted the recipe though to make it healthier.

Sweet Potato Cakes with Black Bean Salsa! They were so good, I had one for dinner with a piece of grilled chicken, and my whole family liked them! These would also be yummy as little appetizers. My mom thought of maybe baking them in mini muffin tins instead of frying them to bring somewhere as an appetizer, I’ll have to try it out! But for now, here’s my adapted recipe that I made for dinner!

Sweet Potato Cakes
Ingredients:
2 medium sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed
3/4 cup almond meal (you can use normal flour if you’d like)
Salt & pepper to taste
Scallions diced
1 tablespoon Smart Balance Butter
1 tablespoon EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

Directions:
Combine salt, pepper, scallions, and flour with the mashed sweet potato.
Heat a large skillet on medium heat and add the butter and olive oil.
Make 7 patties out of the potato mixture and put them in your pan.
Fry first side for about 6-8 minutes or until crispy and brown, then fry the other side for 4-5 minutes.

Black Bean Salsa
Ingredients:
16 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1/2 avocado, diced
1/4 cup onion, diced
Salt & pepper to taste

Directions:
Combine!

Top each sweet potato cake with a tablespoon of sour cream and some
black bean salsa!
