Sweet and Sour Cashew Spread
Instructions
  1. PREP: get your quinoa cooking first. Shred the sweet potato with a box grater, mash the black beans with a fork, and add the cashews to a bowl with the hot water and set aside. Get our your frying pan, oil for frying, blender, and the remaining ingredients. Line a plate with paper towels.
  2. Combine the sweet potato, black beans, quinoa, cumin, salt, pepper, egg, and flour. Mix until well combined. If the mixture doesn’t stick together without falling apart, add more flour as needed.
  3. Coat the bottom of your frying pan with the oil and set to medium heat. Form the fritters into your desired size and add to the hot oil. Cook for about 2 minutes or until lightly browned, and then flip and cook another 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and place on the paper towel lined plate. You may have to work in batches depending on the size of your fritters.
  4. To make the Sweet & Sour Cashew Spread, drain the water from the cashews and add them to the blender cup along with the lemon juice, honey, olive oil, and garlic. Blend until smooth and then transfer to a bowl.
  5. PRESENT: If you’re planning to serve these Sweet Potato, Black Bean, & Quinoa Fritters to guests, or just want to impress your family, here’s how you can present these. Place the fritters on a serving tray and set out smaller plates. Add the Sweet & Sour Cashew Spread to a bowl with a spoon or individual cheese spreaders work great! You can always top the spread with a few leaves of parsley or chopped herbs as well!
