What you'll need
- 400g tin of chickpeas
- 300g of cooked mashed sweet potato
- 1 garlic clove, crushed
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- A squeeze of lemon juice
- Pinch of ground cumin, paprika, coriander, and chilli flakes
- Black pepper
- 4 tbsp sesame seeds
Time: 30 mins
Serves: Makes 4 burgers
Preheat your oven to 200C. Mash the chickpeas in a bowl, then add the mashed sweet potato, the garlic, and the herbs and spices. Mix well, and add lemon juice, pepper, and more spices to taste.
With wet hands, shape the mixture into four burger patties, the sprinkle all over with sesame seeds. Drizzle a baking tray with olive oil, place the patties on a tray (turning them once so they are oiled on either side), then cook for 20-30 minutes. Turn once halfway through cooking, and serve in buns with all your favourite sides, relishes, and sauces etc.
For the perfect wine pairing, crack open a bottle of the Karatta 'Gold Miner's Trek' Pinot Noir 2018. This veggie bean burger paired with this juicy, light and food-friendly wine is going to work like a dream! Yum!
