Yam Pa(n)tties and Shiitake gravy

This recipe is  a mix between a session at the gym  and venting off bad vibes... When you grate and  drain the potatoes  think of someone you hate  and the result will be even better  .... 

Yam Yam Yam  patties
makes 8

  • 1 Potato, peeled and grated
  • 1 Sweet Potato or Yam , peeled and grated

  • Dash of red star yeast 
  • Few slithers of Onion
  • Salt n Peppa
Place both the grated Potato and Sweet Potato in the centre of a clean tea cloth and, over the sink, squeeze all the liquid out. This will take a bit of effort as just when you think you've squeezed as much as you can - squeeze again and there'll be more.
Once squeezed, place in a bowl and add the Onion, Salt and pepper. Toss everything up with a fork.
Heat a skillet pan and add a drizzle of Oil. Use your hands to scoop up a load of the Potato mix and place on the skillet.  Form hamburger like patties  about the size of your hand .. Cook for 2 mins on quite a high heat. Flip the pattiesi over and cook on medium heat for 5-8 mins.  You'll probably need to flip over again but you'll know when they are ready - they will be golden brown in colour with a few black areas. 

Serve on a bed of Quinoa and a Shiitake  gravy !
