I came across this old recipe in my recipe box today for sweet potato burgers.
I can’t believe I haven’t made it in years. It’s so delicious. Sweet potato burger. It’s super easy to make. If I can make it, anyone can.
The ingredients for sweet potato burger are simple and things you most likely already have in your home.
1 Cup Water (for the rice) Cook rice first and let cool
1 pinch of himalayan sea salt
1/2 cup brown rice
1/2 cup raw, pealed sweet potato grated
1/2 cup diced onion
1/2 cup whole grain or gluten free flour
1 Tsp olive oil
Cook your rice first and have it cooled down before you mix it in with other ingredients. If you have left over rice in your fridge, even better, use that! Mix the rice, raw grated sweet potato, onion and salt in a bowl. Let it sit for a few minutes to allow the moisture to be drawn out of the rice and potatoes.
Mix in enough flour to make the batter sticky and add some water (spoonful or 2) if necessary until the mixture can be formed into firm balls. Squish the balls into a patty.
Heat your pan, put in some olive oil so the patty’s do not stick. Cook for 7-10 minutes on one side then flip and cook 5-7 minutes on the 2nd side.
You can garnish with your favorite dressing like cheese, salsa, avacado, lettuce or what I love is the chipotle sauce!!! I also added a little garlic powder to the top of it after it was cooked.
