Sweet Potato Chickpea Burgers

I tried a new recipe of mine tonight and have to say it was pretty successful! I believe I have wrote about my love for sweet potatoes before, so when I planned on having one for dinner tonight, I thought, why not add it to a burger and see how it taste? I cook them often with beans, so I figured it would be a great pairing for a bean burger! 

They burgers were very moist, and I could definitely taste a hint of sweet potato. I topped my burger with sautéed mushrooms, onions, and a little dijon mustard. I hope you try them out for National Nutrition Month!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of chickpeas, rinsed
  • 1/2 of a large sweet potato cooked in the microwave until soft
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • black pepper
  • paprika
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup unseasoned, plain bread crumbs

Mash your chickpeas until fairly fine; they won’t get as mushy as black beans, and may seem a little gritty, but they will be fine! Add your sweet potato and mash as well, incorporating the beans too. Add your egg, bread crumbs, herbs, and seasonings and mix until well blended. Divide your mixture into 4, and create 4 evenly-sized patties (I froze the other 3 for later). Cook your patty until each side is a little golden brown (about 3 minutes per side). Top with your favorite toppings or condiments and enjoy!
