Sweet Potato Quinoa Burger
Fancy burger patties do not need a lot of ingredients, this one needs a handful five. These patties are packed with protein, good fats, flavours, and fragrant with rosemary. These are just what you need in a patty; crisp from the outside and moist from the inside.

Baking these makes it more wholesome, as the tradition deep-fried uses a lot of oil and these really soak all of it up.

Remedy if the mix gets too moist – Let it sit and rest for 5-10 mins as it will thicken up a bit. Even then, if its moist add some tablespoon raw quinoa or grounded flax seeds they are really good at soaking up the moisture.
  • 1 sweet potato
  • ⅓ cup (60g) quinoa, raw
  • 14 oz. (400g) can kidney beans, cooked
  • 1 tsp. rosemary
