Sweet potato burger
I love healthy burgers! This sweet potato burger is vegan, gluten free, colorful and delicious!
These sweet potato burgers are perfect for Friday night, when you feel like eating unhealthy. With these burgers you’ll still be eating comfort food, but then with foods that are good for you!
Below is the recipe for 2 burgers.
1 sweet potato
1 tbs fresh parsley
3 tbs broad beans, finely chopped
1 ts italian herbs
1 tss chili flakes
1 ts lime juice
4 tbs of oatmeal flakes
Preheat oven to 180C/350F. Put the sweet potato in for 45 minutes. Let it cool and remove the skin. Mix the sweet potato with the other ingredients. Form two patties from the mixture with your hands. If you want, you can roll the patties in panko, sesame seeds or bread crumbs (with the latter they’re not gluten free anymore).
Cool the burgers for about 30 minutes (or longer) in the fridge. Heat a bit of olive oil in a frying pan and fry the burgers for a couple of minutes on each side.
I served mine on a whole wheat bun with hummus, lettuce, tomato and a mixture of avocado and broad beans.
If you have leftover sweet potatoes you can make sweet potato fries to go with the burgers!
For the potato fries, I calculate 1 small/medium potato for 1 person. Peel it and cut it into fry shaped pieces. Put the fries onto your baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil and curry powder. Shake to distribute evenly.
Arrange your fries in a single layer. If you’re pan isn’t big enough, bake them in two portions. Bake them in the oven (180C/350F) for 30 minutes, flip the fries after 15 minutes so that they cook an all sides.
