Sweet potato and Chickpea burgers!

March 29, 2015

These are my new favourite thing to make for dinner! Sooo easy, quick, nutritious and filling!

Sweet potato is one of my favourite things ever, I have it in brownies, with nut butter, as mash, chips, thrown into a curry.. I love it. It is high in vitamins B6, C, D, contains potassium, magnesium and iron, and slowly releases its natural sugars into the bloodstream to keep up energy levels.

I also can’t get enough of chickpea’s at the moment! Chickpea’s for me are a great source of fibre and protein, so combined with sweet potato it is the perfect meal.. with a large helping of veg!

To make:

1 sweet potato

1 cup of chickpeas

1 egg

1 tsp ginger

2 cloves garlic

coconut oil

Boil the sweet potato and chickpea’s until they are easily mashable. ¬†Crack and mix the egg into the mixture, and start to make burger shapes with the mixture. Fry the burgers in coconut oil, ginger and garlic. Serve and enjoy with a large helping of veg or whatever else you fancy! I poured some tamari source on mine to compliment the ginger and garlic.
