In sticking with my recent sweet potato theme, this weekend I made homemade walnut sweet potato “burgers”. Typically I try to keep things simple in the kitchen, but this recipe was a bit of work. Even so, the burgers were delicious & worth the effort. If you’d like to try this recipe, you’ll need:
- 3 sweet potatoes, peeled & cubed
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- minced garlic
- fennel, thyme, and rosemary (or your favourite spices)
- salt & pepper
- olive oil
- cooked quinoa
- coarsely crushed walnuts
Add sweet potatoes to boiling water. Boil until soft. Saute onion, garlic, and spices in olive oil until onion is soft. Put sweet potatoes, onion mixture, and quinoa into food processor. Blend into a smooth mixture. Put the mixture into a large bowl. Add walnuts, salt, and pepper. Mix together.
Coat a cookie tray with tin foil and non-stick spray. Spoon mixture onto foil in patty shapes. Bake on 375° for 35 minutes on each side. Serve plain or with a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!
