- Add 1 cup of quinoa and 2 cups of water or vegetable broth to a medium pot and cook over medium heat with a lid for 10 minutes or until all the quinoa has absorbed the liquid.
- Chop up your onion and garlic into small pieces.
- In a large bowl mix, sweet potatoes, quinoa, onion, garlic, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Mix well. Then add 4 eggs to the mixture and mix until well combined.
- In a large skillet add 2 cups of vegetable oil over medium heat. Wait 5 minutes to heat up.
- Mold small 3 to 4 inch circles of sweet potato mixture in your hand compacting the mixture into a small flat balls.
- Carefully place the balls into the oil. Fry 4 at a time.
- Turn the heat down to a low medium. Fry each side for 1 to 2 minutes or until you start to see both sides a crispy light golden brown color.
