Sweet Potato & Chickpea Burgers


3-4 medium size sweet potatoes

1 can chickpeas/garbanzo beans

2 tsp garam masala (indian spice blend)

1 tsp vege stock

1 onion

1 garlic clove

1 cup frozen peas

1 cup corriander

Burger buns

Tomatoes, red onion, lettuce leaves

Tomato relish/hummus

1 cup bread crumbs (optional)


Finely chop the onions, garlic, and place into your fry pan/pot over a medium heat, stir-fry with water. Fry for about 2-3 minutes, or until softened. Then add the frozen peas.

Add the spices, then fry for 2 minutes – if it’s a little fry at this point, simply add more water to help it out. Stir in the beans/chickpeas and simmer until soft. Left the mixture cool and place in mashing bowl.

Once the sweet potatoes have been baked let them cool and add them to the mashing bowl. Mash all ingredients adding finely chopped coriander for a burst of flavour. You can also add bread crumbs to bind the patty. Make into patties and place on a tray ready for the oven.

Oven bake the patties for about 15 mins until golden brown.
