1 large sweet potato (baked with skin or chopped and steamed)
1 mug quinoa (cooked in 2 mugs water and juice of 1 lemon)
2 tablespoons of almond butter or tahini
4 tablespoons of tomato puree
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
2 teaspoons ground cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Place the cooked sweet potato (chop it but I keep skin on)in the blender with juice of the other lemon, almond butter or tahini, tomato puree, spices, drizzle of oil and salt/pepper if needed. Blend until smooth and put mixture in a mixing bowl.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees (180 degrees if using a fan oven)
Mix in the cooked quinoa and stir well - mixture should be nice a sticky!
Make burger sized patties and place them on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper.
Bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
Burgers can be easily frozen. I do this after cooking them and then just reheat them in a pan when I need them.... great for a quick dinner for the kids.
