Total Time 35 minutes
Servings 3 servings


  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 500 g steamed sweet potato
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 pinch salt + pepper
  • 1 protein option: 1 x 400g can chickpeas drained OR 2 x 95g tuna drained


  • Pre-cook brown rice according to instructions and steam sweet potato until soft (approx 20 mins).
  • Allow both rice and sweet potato to cool and then mash the sweet potato until smooth and add the rice, curry powder and onion powder.
  • Using both hands, thoroughly mix the ingredients together and then add the chosen protein. Chickpeas: drain, rinse and mash until crumbled and add to the mixture OR Tuna: drain and add to the mixture.
  • Once all ingredients are mixed thoroughly, use both hands to make into 6 individual patties (if you have time, you can set these in the fridge for 10 minutes to firm).

  • Heat 1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil in a frying pan and add the patties to the frying pan and cook until brown and crispy on both sides.

  • Serve and enjoy with salad.

Essential Equipment

Steamer, frying pan and potato masher.


I use a standard cup measure. If you don’t have one you can use a mug and substitute the amount for ¾ of a standard size mug (example of measuring cups here).
