These patties are a good option for those of you looking for a filling snack that you can have on hand in the fridge or easily pack in a lunchbox. Get a serve of veggies with the sweet potato and protein with the tuna and eggs. Yum!
This recipe was created by Bec as an adaptation of The Road to Loving My Thermomix’s 4 Ingredient Tuna Patties. Thanks Peta, for the inspiration!
These are regularly made in The 4 Blades household as they are filling and use only 4 nutritious ingredients – sweet potato, tuna, spring onion, egg. Sweet Potato Tuna Patties are great for lunch boxes and are a GREAT baby finger food. You can tailor them to your preferred tastes by squeezing some lemon juice over them, sprinkling some garlic granules / paprika – the choice is yours!
