Sweet Potato & Bean Burger (Vegetarian/Vegan Recipe)

in #food2 years ago


Every now and again I just want to pig out on some comfort food, and there is nothing more comforting than a big ole dirty burger with a bottle of beer in front of the TV. But with this recipe it is totally possible to make that comfort food healthy as well, working off the calories in the gym afterwards is up to you 😆

For those dedicated carnivores out there this recipe may not quite hit the spot, but as a life long vegetarian this sweet potato and Adzuki bean burger ticks all boxes while giving a knock out punch for nutritional value. For all the vegans out there, simply swap out the garlic mayo I have used for some tomato salsa or ketchup and you're good to go.

Check out the recipe and explanation below, and if you have any questions I'd be happy to answer them in the comments.



1 Sweet Potato about 1 cup mashed

1 cup (230 g) of beans cooked or canned (I used dried Adzuki beans for their nutty flavor)

1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) salt

1-2 teaspoons Cajun spice blend

1/2 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) chili flakes or to taste

1 Tablespoon onion flakes

1 Tablespoon nutritional yeast

2-4 Tablespoons flour

2 or more Tablespoons bread crumbs

1 Tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup (25 g) bread crumbs to coat


Thinly cut Gherkin slices

Thinly cut tomato slices

Garlic Mayo or Tomato Salsa for Vegan Option

Basil or other fresh leafy herbs

Multigrain buns/rolls (I used fresh made bagels)


  1. Boil, peel and mash 1 large Sweet Potato.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients except 1/4 cup bread crumbs. Mix and mash.

  3. Taste and adjust seasoning if needed. Chill for 15 minutes to allow the mixture to get less sticky.

  4. Make patties and coat in bread crumbs. I made 3 inch wide and 1/2-3/4 inch thick patties. The mixture might be sticky. Use flour or oil on hands to work. Once baked, the patties are quite sturdy.

  5. Bake for 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees F / 190ºc, until golden and dry on the outside.

  6. Lightly toast buns/rolls/bagels (optional)

  7. Arrange Toppings on the buns, with a burger patty.

yeah, they're easy to make, bit of you're using dried beans like I did, just be sure to soak the beans in salt overnight before coming them for 10-15 mins. I find the dried beans really do need the soaking for the right consistency for burgers.

Glad you enjoyed the recipe and it's gonna be used 👍

Yum!! You are having fun in the kitchen of late! Awesome!

Hi Riverflows 👋

Yes, I'm enjoying cooking lots of healthy food at the moment and documenting it on steem lol

It's kind of a way for me to continue contributing content here, which hopefully has value, while I focus my creative energies elsewhere. I may become a little less frequent on steem as I'm joining NaNoWriMo today with a very serious goal of completing a full fantasy novel manuscript to send to publishing houses. I wrote a blog about it yesterday.

For me, it's all about removing distractions. I'll only succeed if I focus in on the writing process and strip my life down to the simple things; healthy food, reading good books, exercise and writing.

But I'm not gonna disappear from steem completely, only getting rid of all mobile access... literally right after I've written this comment I'm uninstalling partiko and esteem. I've already got rid of fbook + twitter lol

Be checking in on steem every 3 or 4 days I think and maybe posting one of these recipe/food posts, plus I plan on coming to @bewithbreath's meditation sessions more often over the next 30 days, maybe see you there 🙂

I'm not a vegetarian, but I do make a lot of vegetarian meals, and this sounds flat out delicious . . . I've always loved both sweet potatoes and adzuki beans, and usually have both on hand, so score!

We'll definitely be trying this, so thanks!
