Sweet Potato & Quinoa Cakes with Beetroot Hummus.

It just so happens that my better half dislikes sweet potato, quinoa, peanut butter and beets.                 
I heartily love all four.

Unknowingly I incorporated all 4 of those things in to our dinner...

Oopsie daisies!

I'm unsure as to whether these are burgers or patties or cakes or thing o's... But they're pretty tasty!

And you know what?

He ate it all.

He ate more than I did.
