Ingredients:

For the Cakes:
1 1/2 pounds sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 large beets, peeled and diced
2 cups diced mushrooms
2 1/2 cups very finely chopped collard greens
1 medium onion, diced
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon Dr. Fuhrman's Black Fig Vinegar or balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons fresh chopped dill
2 tablespoons ground chia seeds
For the Apple Cashew Sauce:
1 apple, peeled, seeded and diced
1/2 cup chopped, unsulfured dried apples
3/4 cup water
1/4 cup raw cashews
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
white pepper, to taste

Instructions:

Place the sweet potatoes and beets together in a pot and steam, covered, for 30 minutes or until they are fork-tender. Place in a bowl and mash thoroughly.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Saute the onion in a saute pan in 2-3 tablespoons of water. Cook until the onion is tender. Add the mushrooms and collard greens. Continue to cook until all of the vegetables are tender. Add the cooked onion and greens mixture, Dijon mustard, vinegar, dill and ground chia seeds to the mashed sweet potato and beet mixture.

Form into patties. Bake for 1 hour. (Cakes can be baked ahead of time and reheated prior to serving)

To make apple cashew sauce, place the fresh and dried apples in a small pot with the water. Bring to a boil over medium high heat, then reduce heat and simmer, covered for 20 minutes. Place in a food processor or high-powered blender along with the cashews, vinegar and pepper and puree.

Serve potato cakes with sauce.

How many cups would 1 and 1/2 pounds of sweet potatoes amount to?

It doesn't say cups, just 1and 1/2 pounds, so go by that. The supermarkets usually have scales in the produce or fruit section so I use them to weigh my fruit/veggies.

There are many reasons I take a food scale with me wherever I am. There are so many times a scale is the easiest way to get the amount of food you need. This is a perfect example.

These burger "cakes" are delicious. I've made them numerous times and they are consistently excellent. I've not made the sauce yet because the "cakes" are perfect by themselves. We eat them for lunch or dinner, not breakfast.

I look forward to trying this. Is there any reason not to use beet greens instead of collard greens? When buying beets I can never use the greens as fast as the beets.

Very often I substitute beet greens for collard greens. When cooking them on their own, I'll include onions and mushrooms adding Mrs. Dash or some other seasoning that I'm in the mood for.

I think all the ingredients are ground together in a blender...   if the nuts were to be ground first...  it would be listed as ground cashews as the ingredient...   :o)

I don't understand whay these are called burgers or why they are shaped into a burger and baked. They are just a circle of mashed potato and beets. They are not firm like a burger.

I'd like make them into small balls that can be used as finger food for a xmas party. What do folks think, will they hold together nicely? Thanks

I made these cakes tonight, and they are very good; I plan to make them again, although there's more chopping involved than I usually like. I used lacinato kale and red onion.  My husband liked them, too!
