Sweet Potato Tuna Cakes (w/Broccoli)

These were delicious!  I know the combination sounds a little weird and if you are not a fan of sweet potatoes or tuna (like Adam) this is not a recipe for you.  But if you love all the ingredients (like me) this is a very good, healthy and quick dinner!
Sweet Potato Tuna Cakes w/Broccoli
1.5 large sweet potatoes or 2 medium sweet potatoes
1 can of tuna (I used Albacore White in water)
2 cups of frozen broccoli
2 TBS light sour cream
1 TBS chili powder
1/2 TSP salt

Wash and peel the sweet potatoes ~ cut into chunks ~ add the sweet potato chunks and frozen broccoli to a pot a boiling water and boil until tender then drain ~ once drained add the sweet potato chunks and broccoli to a mixer ~ add the tuna, sour cream, chili powder and salt ~ mix on high until smooth ~ heat a non-stick fry pan to medium heat ~ while the pan is heating form the sweet potato mixture into small patties ~ heat the patties in the pan and flip until they are browned on either side ~ serve and enjoy!
One batch ended up yielding about 8 patties.  I ate four for dinner and took a couple for lunch the next day - they reheated really well!


These may not have been the prettiest thing I have ever made but the taste made up for it - they were good!
