Bake the sweet potatoes in the oven for about 40 minutes. Peel and discard the skin. Mash the sweet potato.
Cook 1 cup of quinoa as per packet instructions. I cooked it in my instant pot with 2 cups of water.
In a bowl, add the mashed sweet potato, cooked quinoa, chopped kale, dried thyme, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Mix everything together.
Take about 2 Tablespoons of the mixture and form into patties.
Heat a non-stick pan. Add a teaspoon of oil. Cook the patties 2 minutes per side until they are crisp and golden brown.
