2 tsp cumin

1 tsp chili powder

1 tsp paprika

1 tsp turmeric

Chili flakes

½ tsp garlic granules

½ tsp cayenne powder

This makes six delicious veggie burgers

Method:

Preheat your oven to 180 degrees.

Peel and slice the sweet potatoes and roast them for about 35-40 minutes.

Once they’re cooked set them aside to cool completely

Next you’ll need to boil your quinoa. Bring the water to a boil and then cover and reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer.

Simmer for 10-15 minutes, then remove them from heat and let them steam with the lid on for five minutes.

Drain off excess water and set aside to cool.

Wash and drain your black beans.

Blend your oats until the flakes are just broken up.

Combine the sweet potatoes, black beans, onion, spices and chives and mix well.

Add in the oats, do this by sprinkling them over the mixture little by little.

Next pop in the chives.

The mixture should hold together when you shape the burgers. Use your hands to flatten them gently and smooth out the edges.

If possible, cover the burgers and pop them in the fridge for about 25-30 minutes for best results. The burgers will hold together better when cooking if they’re chilled first.

Pan fry the patties on a medium heat on each side until browned, it should be about 3-5 minutes per side.

And voila there you have it! Grab your bun, lettuce, sauce of choice and you’re ready to go.

Amy paired her burger with some sweet corn and pumpkin cubes made with chili, garlic and paprika. Have you tried this? Let us know what you think.
