    Cook the Quinoa

    Bring a small pot with quinoa and ⅔ cup water to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until quinoa is tender and water has been absorbed, 12-15 minutes. Transfer quinoa to a plate and cool 5 minutes. While quinoa cooks, prepare ingredients.

Roast until tender,15-18 minutes. Cool 5 minutes, and measure ½ cup sweet potato (reserve remaining for salad) into a medium mixing bowl.

Season with ½ tsp. salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Form mixture into two ½" thick patties. Heat 1 tsp. olive oil in a medium non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
