2-3 small sweet potatoes
1 tin chickpeas
juice of 1 lemon
1 tablespoon tahini (sesame paste)
1 teaspoon garim masala (or alternative spices such as cumin, coriander)
1 tablespoon chia seeds
Step 1: Peel and chop sweet potatoes. Steam or boil until soft (about 10 minutes)
Step 2: Rinse and drain chickpeas. Add to nutri bullet (or alternative blender) along with cooked sweet potato. Blend until combined (It doesn’t need to be completely smooth)
Step 3: Transfer chickpea and sweet potato mixture to mixing bowl. Add lemon juice, tahini, garim masala and chia seeds. Mix well.
Step 4: Form mixture into burgers and place on baking tray lined with parchment paper (I made 8 burgers from this mixture). Bake in oven preheated to 200 c for 25-30 minutes. Flip burgers halfway through so that they are cooked evenly on both sides.
Step 5: They should look something like this when they are done. Enjoy some burgers as part of your lunch or dinner.
