Falafel Yam Patties

This week I share with you my special recipe for falafel yam patties. You won’t need an oven to prepare or cook them. They are a great main meal served on their own with a salad or as a burger on a bun. Either way, you choose the way you want to eat them. Also, they are great with homemade tahini sauce.
