Chickpea Sweet Potato Burger
Prep and cook time: 45 minutes
1 cup carrots
1 can chickpeas, drained
1 medium sweet potato, cooked (baked or microwaved) and peeled
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 cup kale, stems removed
2 tbsp shallot
2 cloves garlic
½ tsp ground or fresh ginger
½ tsp turmeric
sea salt and freshly ground pepper
While preparing ingredients, soak chia seeds in 4 tbsp of water for 10 minutes.
Add all ingredients to a food processor and process until well chopped and combined. Mixture should be thick but additional water can be added if needed to process easily.
Form into patties – this recipe makes 6 patties. Bake on a lightly greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, turn over with a spatula and bake for an additional 15 minutes. These freeze well.
