Notes

To make 1 cup of quinoa you will need to cook approximately 1/2 cup according to the packet instructions.
You can use a combination of sweet potato and pumpkin mash.
It's important that the leftover mash is cold as it makes it easier to form into patties.
The sweet potato quinoa bites will firm on cooling (but will remain soft on the inside).
