SWEET POTATO PATTIES with CURRIED YOGURT SAUCE

We love our sweet taters. So rich in fibre! …and this recipe with the added yogurt sauce is perfect adding great flavour and apparently the addition of a little fat will aid in the uptake of all that good orange beta-carotene. They also make an easy appetizer or snack. Just make little two inch crispy potato medallions with a touch of sauce on the side. […]

LAMB PATTIES with MINTED YOGURT SAUCE
