Chickpea Sweet Potato Burgers


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.
