Salty & sweet, sweet potato fries & yummy satisfying quinoa veggie burgers.. yes please! Here’s how!!

What You’ll Need: 

For Burgers:

  • 1 can (15 ounces) kidney beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, finely grated
  • 3 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, 2 tablespoons chopped basil
  • 3 tablespoons crumbled feta or any cheese you like
  • 1 tablespoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 egg whites, whisk lightly

For Sweet Potato Fries: 

  • 1 large sweet potato, scrubbed clean
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1.5 teaspoons coarse sea salt

What To Do: 

Start with the sweet potato fries as they take longer to crisp.

  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Cut sweet potato into pretty thin “fry” like cuts.
  3. In a large bowl coat the sweet potato fries evenly with olive oil and salt
  4. Dump onto a large baking sheet and spread evenly so they don’t touch and overlap
  5. Put in oven and set timer to 30 minutes

Start on the burger process:

  1. In a bowl, mash beans into a thick paste and mix in garlic, carrot, quinoa, parsley, basil, feta, salt, and egg whites.

  2. Form mixture into six patties and chill 20 minutes.

  3. Check on the sweet potato fries if crispy enough, take out and set aside
  4. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a skillet over medium-high heat, directly on grill grates or on stove top, and cook patties until golden (add remaining tablespoon oil if cooking in batches), 4 to 5 minutes per side.

  5. Serve with sweet potato fries on a bun or bed of lettuce and some organic ketchup 😉
