Meatless Monday-Quinoa, Lentil and Sweet Potato Cakes

I always love shopping at Whole Foods, especially the prepared food case.  So, I was browsing their website and found this recipe.  I used different spices, but HERE is the recipe from the site.  Hope you enjoy!

1/2 cup Quinoa

1/2 cup Sprouted Green Lentils

1 medium red bell pepper, finely chopped

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon sea salt, black pepper, onion powder, garlic salt, and Italian seasoning

1 medium sized cooked sweet potato, mashed

Drain lentils well

In a medium bowl, mix together quinoa, lentils, red pepper, seasonings

Add mashed sweet potato, and combine all ingredients using hands until mixture sticks together…it doesn’t look to pretty, but it does taste better than it looks
