Bounce around Pinterest long enough and you are sure to come across a fritter recipe or two. This Sweet Potato, Black Bean & Quinoa Fritters recipe combines some of my favorites, seasoned with cumin.

Start cooking the quinoa first. Shred the sweet potato with a box grater, mash the black beans with a fork, and get the cashews soaking in the hot water. Get out your frying pan and oil, blender, and the remaining ingredients, as well.
Combine the grated sweet potato, mashed black beans, and cooked quinoa in a medium bowl. Mix in the cumin salt, pepper, egg, and flour and combine. The mixture should stick together, but if not, add more flour as needed. Heat the oil over medium. Form the fritters into patties of your desired size, and place in the hot oil. Flip after about 2 minutes and cook another 2 minutes on the other side. Remove and place on a paper towel lined plate.
To make the cashew spread, drain the water from the cashews and add to a blender cup with the lemon juice, honey, olive oil. and garlic. Blend until smooth.
