Sweet Potato Chickpea Burgers
serves 2
½ cup chickpeas, cooked
¼ cup mashed cooked sweet potato
1 medium egg, or one large egg white
¼ cup panko bread crumbs
¼ cup sliced red onion
1 tsp tahini
dash of salt
dash of cayenne pepper powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp ground cumin
2 buns (recipe follows)
tahini sauce (recipe follows)
lettuce, tomato, onion
 
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Heat a skillet with a little oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Set the onion aside to cool. Once the onion has cooled, combine it along with the sweet potato, tahini, and chickpeas in a food processor. Process until there are course chunks. Whisk in the egg along with the seasonings and bread crumbs. Form into 2 patties and bake on a nonstick stone for 20-25 minutes. Flip and cook another 5 minutes. Let them cool for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Serve with the tahini sauce and veggies tucked into a toasted bun.

All my classes after 10 am were cancelled this morning, so I took the opportunity to make some Valentine's cards before work. This one is for my friend Tori who I had not been able to make a card for yet since she is always over when I am crafting.
