Yam Quinoa Fritters

Yams. So delish and so healthy to eat. I love the versatility of yams. I can incorporate them into a savory dish with other vegetables and ingredients or go more towards the sweeter route, including a variety of scrumptious desserts.

Yams offer a host of spectacular health benefits. They are a good source of vitamin C and they provide good amount of fiber, potassium, manganese, and metabolic B vitamins.

Quinoa totally rock star. It’s gluten-free, high in protein and one of the few plant foods that contain all nine essential amino acids. It is also high in fiber, magnesium, B vitamins, iron, potassium, calcium, phosphorus, vitamin E and various beneficial antioxidants.

These Yam Quinoa Fritters are not only great as a breakfast meal, they make an awesome snack as well. They are truly delicious and the yogurt sauce is just icing on the cake.
