    Directions

    1. Combine quinoa, 2 cups water and salt in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes; drain well.
    2. Pierce sweet potato several times with a fork. Microwave on HIGH (100%) 5 to 8 minutes or until tender. Let cool slightly. Cut sweet potato in half and scoop pulp into a large bowl. Add cooked quinoa; stir in yogurt, chili powder and egg. Shape mixture into 12 patties. Place on a baking sheet; cover and chill 10 minutes.
    3. Combine all salsa ingredients, tossing well. Cover and store in refrigerator until ready to serve.
    4. Dredge chilled patties in panko, pressing to flatten (discard any remaining panko). Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat in a large nonstick skillet. Work in two batches to add 6 patties to skillet and cook 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove from pan and keep warm. Repeat procedure with remaining oil and patties. Top each patty with salsa and serve.

    This turned out so amazing! I also added a can of diced tomatoes to the black bean salsa. Will repeat again and again!
