I enjoy little bites, and summer time is especially suited to savory cakes and patties. My preference is usually to bake most varieties in the oven because it cuts down on oil and time too as the whole batch will usually fit on one sheet. My latest experiment in savory little bites has everything you need for a complete meal — sweet potato, chickpeas, oats and seeds. They are mildly spiced, with a slightly crusted exterior and a soft and succulent middle. Golden and packed full of protein and fiber, this will not be the last time they appear on my table. I've no doubt that even the carnivores at the table won't be complaining about the lack of moo in each bite.
The serving possibilities are endless. You can serve them in tortilla wraps, pita pockets, buns, or just as they are with some salsa and a side salad. My choice was to serve them up over some baby kale and then top with a spicy avocado and tomato salsa, with some goat cheese biscuits on the side. Filling and refreshing, it's pretty much a trouble free meal, but wonderful anytime of year.
