Gluten-Free Lentil Sweet Potato Burgers

I made these sweet potato burgers about two weeks ago. I also made some black beans and lovage patties which were absolutely amazing! Unfortunately, I was too hungry and didn’t take any photos of them.

I rarely cook with sweet potatoes, maybe because they are pretty expensive here or I’m just not that used to using them in recipes. Anyway, I saw some sweet potatoes at a decent price and got the idea to use them in a veggie burger patties recipe. Glad I did! Sweet potatoes have a subtle sweetness I love, plus they have a great color! You’ll get some cute, dark orange patties with a great texture. Also, lentils were the base ingredient in this recipe.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Mix the ground flax and water in a small bowl and set aside for 5 minutes to thicken.
  2. Add lentils in a pot and cover them with water. From the moment they start boiling, let them boil for about 15 minutes and then remove from heat.
  3. Strain the lentils very well and put them in a large bowl. Start mashing them a little, using a fork, or use your food processor to turn them into a paste.
  4. Add egg/flax egg, inactive yeast flakes, chopped onion, parsley, grated sweet potato, breadcrumbs/flour, sea salt and pepper into the bowl.
  5. Using a fork, or your hands, start mixing the composition. It has to be sticky and easy to form. If it’s not it means that you didn’t strain the lentils very well and the composition is too wet. No problem, just add more breadcrumbs/flour until it has a sticky dough-like consistency.
  6. Spray a non-stick pan with some oil. Not too much. Put each patty on the frying pan and let it fry about 2 minutes on each side.
  7. Make the burgers with any other ingredients you want, such as GF buns, tomato slices, salad leaves and more!

can these be baked in the oven? do they even get warm frying for only 2 minutes/side?

Sure! I heat the oil first and don't make them too thick. It's enough to make their sides crisp. You can increase the time to 3-4 minutes on each side maybe. :)

This recipe is great and a change to my usual vegatarian food. One question, can you use normal yeast (like allinsons yeast, used in breads) or do you need nutrional yeast? I'm not bothered about healthiness and I'm only vegatarian with no other dietary needs. Thank you.

Nope! Normal yeast is a totally different thing! Only use inactive dry yeast flakes = nutritional yeast. You can skip it if you want and add some more flour instead.
