Hearty Sweet Potato Quinoa Burgers

Monday, January 20, 2014

I love nothing more than sinking my teeth into a thick, juicy, hand formed burger with a slice of good ol’ processed white American cheese–specifically one off my dad’s grill, eaten poolside (but I’ll also take SHAKE SHACK.) I devised these Sweet Potato Quinoa Burgers not to replace my carnivore cravings, but to provide an easy and delicious patty that would be a complete meal.

These burgers contain quinoa and beans for protein, sweet potato for complex carbs, and veggies for filling fiber. Make a big batch and wrap and freeze extra patties for quickie microwaved dinners later. For extra protein, top with a fried egg.

-1 can cannellini beans
-1 medium sweet potato
-1/2 cup dry quinoa, cooked
-1/2 package frozen vegetables (carrots, onions, peppers, zucchini, green beans)
-1/2 cup frozen corn
-1 tsp. cumin
-1 tsp. coriander
-dash of harissa
-dash of cinnamon
-salt and pepper to taste

Add seasonings, mix well, stir in cooked vegetables. Form into patties and pan fry until browned on both sides.


Serve with egg or a side of vegetables. Freeze extra patties.
