The BEST Sweet Potato and Chickpea Burgers

Summer is heeeeeeeeeere! And summer calls for grilling right? So here is my favourite burger recipe – it is made with sweet potato and chickpeas so it is as nutritious as it is delicious. It is vegan and gluten free too – hurrah.

You can either cook it in the oven, stove top or right on the grill AND it freezes really well so you can make a bunch ahead and just keep in the freezer. Winner winner.

1 can of drained and rinsed chickpeas/garbanzo

1 medium sweet potato (cooked in microwave for 10 mins then removed from skin)

1/2 cup oats

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cayenne

2 tsp tumeric

2 tsp cumin

1 tsp mild curry powder

5 garlic cloves

1 tbsp lemon juice

2 jalapenos minus seeds (maybe just one if you don’t like it too hot)

burger buns and whatever toppings you like

  1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor. If it doesn’t all fit in, do it in batches and mix together in a separate bowl). You wanna mush it all up until it’s pretty smooth and wet enough to hold together, but not too wet that its sticky. If that happens add a tbsp of oats at a time til it’s perfect.
  2. Shape into burger shaped patties. I’m really hoping you know what I’m talking about. You’ll get between 6 and 8 depending on how big your patties are.
  3. Lay wax paper on a baking sheet and put your burgers on there. From here you can either cook them straight up. Oven at 400F for about 30 mins – flipping half way or stove/grill top for about 7 mins each side ( depending how hot you’ve got it).
  4. If you don’t wanna eat them all now you can freeze them for about an hour. Longer is okay too. This firms them up and makes handling easier.
  5. Once they’re frozen wrap each patty separately in wax paper and pop them all in a ziplock and back in the freezer til you’re ready to eat them.
  6. You can cook from frozen whenever you fancy, but just remember they’ll take longer to cook all the way in the middle. If you cook them on a grill I recommend oiling the grill up real good and also cooking straight from frozen so they hold their shape.
  7. Add whatever toppings you like, I had veganaise, lettuce, tomato and some sriracha because sriracha is da bomb.I bet avocado is great with this slightly spicy burger too.
