Sweet potato and beetroot burger


This is the perfect recipe to use any leftover mashed sweet potatoes or roasted sweet potatoes. 

For the pickled carrots

  • In a saucepan, boil the vinegar and sugar, until the sugar dissolves.
  • Set aside for 2-3 minutes to cool.
  • In a bowl, add the grated carrots along with the mixture from saucepan and salt. Mix and set aside until needed.

For the burger

  • Finely chop the onion and garlic.
  • Place a pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and let it get hot.
  • Add the onion and sauté for 3-4 minutes until slightly golden.
  • Add the garlic and sesame seeds. Sauté for 2 minutes. Remove pan from heat and allow mixture to cool.
  • Prick the sweet potatoes with a fork and wrap them in parchment paper.
  • Transfer to an ovenproof bowl and microwave for 15-20 minutes at 800 Watts, until they soften. (The time will depend on the size of the sweet potatoes.)
  • When ready, very carefully remove the bowl from the microwave because it will be very hot.
  • Cut the sweet potatoes in half, lengthwise and use a spoon to remove their flesh. Transfer to a food processor and beat until pureed.
  • Add the grated beetroots, breadcrumbs, bulgur, boiled quinoa, sautéed vegetables from pan, salt and pepper.
  • Pulse just to combine ingredients. You don’t want to beat for too long or else you will puree the vegetables. Season to taste.
  • Preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Shape mixture into 6 burger patties.
  • Spread the raw quinoa in a dish and coat each burger with it. Brush patties with remaining olive oil.
  • Place a pan over medium to high heat, add the patties and sauté for 1-2 minutes on each side until the quinoa turns light golden.
  • Transfer to a baking pan and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  • When ready, remove from oven and you are now ready to serve your burgers!

To serve

  • Spread 1 teaspoon mayonnaise over the bottom part of the hamburger bun.
  • Cover with patty and then add a slice of tomato, onions, some rocket leaves and pickled carrots.
  • Spread the top part of the hamburger bun with mild mustard, cover burger and serve.
