This Veggie Burger recipe isn’t one of our simplest and it may take a few attempts to master, however, it’s a great for anyone looking to adopt a meat free diet as it still provides a good amount of protein.

Sweet potatoes are not only a great source of complex carbs they are also a better choice than regular, white potatoes as they have fewer calories, have more Vitamin C, more fibre and fewer total carbs.

Ingredients

Makes 2 servings

  • 100g cooked brown rice
  • 100g canned brown lentils
  • 1 carrot, peeled & grated
  • 100g wholewheat breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp no added sugar, chunky peanut butter (193 kcal)
  • 10g chopped walnuts
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbsp chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp dried paprika
  • 200g sweet potato, cut into fry style strips
  • Olive oil
  • Handful mixed lettuce leaves
  • 1 large tomato, cut into large slices
  • 2 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • Non fat cooking spray
  • 2 medium sized wholemeal baps (148 kcal each)

Directions

  1. To prepare the burgers, add all of the burger ingredients to a bowl and mix well.
  2. Wet your hands and make 2 burger shaped patties, arranging them on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  3. For the sweet potato fries, preheat the oven to 200c, preparing the sweet potato by cutting into fry/chip sized slices (leaving the skin on is optional, if you wash the potato make sure it is completely dry before baking)
  4. On a separate baking tray, drizzle 2 tbsp olive oil and spread it out evenly
  5. Add the sweet potatoes to the baking tray, sprinkle with a good pinch of sea salt and a good measure of freshly ground black pepper
  6. Mix the sweet potato in with the oil to ensure the fries have a good coating of oil, salt & pepper, then spread out the fries evenly on the tray
  7. Place the burgers and the sweet potatoes in the oven on separate shelves for 20 minutes (do not open the oven door during this time).
  8. Take out the baking trays, turn the fries, flip the burgers and then return to the oven for a further 15 minutes.
  9. Slice open the wholemeal baps, place a burger in each bap and top with lettuce, tomato and the sliced onion and serve alongside the sweet potato fries with 1 tbsp tomato ketchup (or a sauce of your choice).
