Sweet Potato Burgers

Quick post tonight - sorry I haven't been posting recently.  Kind of got attacked by integrals/derivatives.  It was rather scary, to tell the truth.  But it's all good - got some excellent grades, and I'm feeling good about life right now..

Adapted from How Sweet Eats

Roughly blend/ mash
  • 1 sweet potato, cubed and cooked
  • 1 tbps flax meal mixed with 1 tbsp water
  • 1 cup white beans
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced and sauteed
  • 1/3 cup bread cumbs
  • 1/3 cup oat flour
  • Smoked paprika, onion powder, and cumin
For the sauce, blend silken tofu with LOTS of roasted galic.

Shape into patties and bake for about 20 minutes at 350, until cooked.
Serve on buns with avocado, red onion, and sauce.
*A note on the buns: I managed to get my hands on some white whole wheat flour this weekend, and used that to make the buns.  They turned out much better!  Yum!

Got two recipes for you guys tonight!  Sorry I haven't posted so long - I got swamped by physics!..

chopped fresh cilantro
red onion slices
seitan chicken (baked at 350 for half an hour, no oil)
