Curry Sweet Potato Chickpea Burgers

by Kelli H. on September 16, 2011

I found this recipe from a fellow blogger but decided to change it up a bit. I love anything sweet potato and anything vegetarian burger. I’m sure you can guess how excited I was to find a recipe that combined sweet potatoes AND chick peas – best of both worlds!

This recipe would be perfect for fall. It requires you to use your oven so no more bbq burgers – back to baking them! I changed this recipe a tad because I prefer to bake my veggie burgers rather than pan fry them. With the accompaniment of the heirloom tomato and red onion from my local farm, it was heavenly!

Curry Sweet Potato Chickpea Burgers
Adapted from The Sweets Life

2 sweet potatoes, baked and peeled, roughly chopped
1 can chickpeas, drained
2 green onions, roughly chopped
2 tsp curry powder
1 cup old fashioned oats
S&P
buns, tomatoes, lettuce, onion, etc.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
2. In a food processor add sweet potatoes and chick peas and process until smooth (you could also do this in a bowl with a potato masher).  Add in the green onions, curry powder, oats, and S&P. You may need to add up to 1/3 cup water at this point if the mixture is not coming together.
3. Form mixture into 6 patties and place on a baking sheet with cooking spray or a silt pad.
4. Bake patties for 25-30 minutes or until crispy.

I have wanted curry like crazy lately. I had the gluten free street noodles at PF Changs last night because they are stir fried in curry but they were surprisingly mild. I still really liked them but I really wanted some curry. I love this recipe and must make as. soon. as. possible.
