Sweet Potato and Quinoa Burger Recipe

2014-03-01 | By: Snap Fitness

These sweet and spicy patties are a great way to switch up your usual burger routine. They're vegan, gluten free, and made with wholesome ingredients like quinoa, sweet potato, white beans, and oat flour. I like serving them on whole grain buns with smashed avocado and hot sauce, but they also work well crumbled over your favorite salad. This recipe serves six.

 

Ingredients

1/2 teaspoon olive oil

1 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, divided

1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked (tri-color or white)

1 medium sweet potato

1 15-ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

1 shallot, diced

1/2 teaspoon chili powder

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne

1/4 cup oat flour

 

Instructions

1. Heat the oil in a medium-sized sauce pan. Add the quinoa and toast for 2-3 minutes. Pour in the water and 1/4 teaspoon salt and bring to a boil, then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 15-20 minutes (until all liquid is absorbed). Set aside and allow to cool.

2. While the quinoa is cooking, cook the potato. Poke holes in the potato and microwave for a few minutes, until softened. Push the potato through a potato ricer. If you don't have a ricer, peel the potato before you microwave it, and then mash with a fork.

3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

4. Mash the beans with a fork in a large bowl. Add the cooled quinoa and cooked sweet potato, and stir in the spices, remaining salt, and oat flour.

5. Form the dough into 6 patties (about 1/2 cup each) and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

6. Bake for 8-10 minutes on each side.

7. Serve on a burger bun (gluten free, if desired), with your favorite toppings; I love smashed avocado and a drizzle of hot sauce.
