Recipe: Brown Rice Sweet Potato Patties

One of my favourite ways to ensure I have healthy mid-week dinners is to whip up some patties on a Sunday. That way, I just have to bake them when I get home from work, serve with a salad and I’m done! These brown rice sweet potato patties are perfect for that – not to mention delicious!

  3. Finely chop the red onion and parsley (leaves and stems) and mince the garlic
