Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 8-12 mini-sliders, or 4-6 regular sized patties
  • 1 sweet potato, baked, peeled, and mashed
  • ⅓ block of extra-firm tofu (from a 14 oz package)
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon minced rosemary
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • ½ cup panko (to roll the patties in before baking)
  • Sea salt and fresh black pepper
  • Slider or regular hamburger buns
  • Whatever fixings you like on your burger: I had avocado, red onion & sprouts
  1. Preheat the oven to 425.
  2. Place the mashed sweet potato in a bowl and crumble in the tofu with your hands.
  3. Mash together with a fork until the tofu falls apart even more.
  4. Mix in the tahini, maple syrup, garlic, rosemary, paprika, salt & pepper.
  5. Form into patties. They will be messy; that's ok.
  6. Put the panko on a plate and coat the outside of each patty with the crumbs.
  7. Place patties on a baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until the edges are brown and crisp.
  8. I turned the broiler on for the last 30-60 seconds to help the browning along.
  9. You could also pan fry these in a skillet, but I baked them so they'd have less of a chance of falling apart.
  10. Serve on buns with whatever fixings you like. Or serve without a bun over a mixed greens salad.
