Serves: 5

Preparation time: 20 minutes

Cooking time: 55 minutes

Ingredients:

1 lb sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped

1 lb tomatoes, diced

1 cup of fresh spinach, finely chopped

3 large eggs, beaten

2 tbsp all-purpose flour

1 x 40 gram scoop Blackbelt WPC Plain Protein Powder

3 tbsp tomato paste

3 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 medium-sized onion, finely chopped

½ cup breadcrumbs

1 tsp salt

4 tbsp olive oil

½ cup white wine

2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

½ tsp black pepper, ground

¼ tsp dried oregano, ground

Preparation:

Peel the sweet potatoes and chop into small chunks. Place in a deep pot and add water enough to cover. Bring it to a boil and cook for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain. Transfer the potatoes into a blender and process until pureed. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine finely chopped spinach, pureed potatoes, flour, salt, 2 eggs, and Blackbelt WPC Plain Protein Powder. Give it a good stir until you get a nice thick mixture. Form 1-inch-thick patties, dip in the remaining egg and finally roll in breadcrumbs.

Preheat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan over a medium-high heat. Fry patties for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Remove from the heat and set aside.

Now, prepare the marinara sauce.

Preheat the remaining oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Add onions and stir-fry for about 4-5 minutes, or until translucent. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, parsley, garlic, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes and reduce the heat to low. Add wine and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Now, add the patties to marinara. Toss all to coat and soak up the juices. Cook for a minute to meld and remove from the heat.

Sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving.
