The Burgers Have Turned Orange

12 Mar

The most creative meals come to you out of nowhere. You’re sitting at your desk, studying your heart out or driving along the road and then BAM. There was a spark. And there is a new recipe. That’s kinda how this little recipe came about.

We were thinking of how we were going to save our poor sweet potato that was slowly dying on us. We are not ones to let a sweet potato go to waste (who could anyways) so we needed to use it fast. We ran through making a soup, simply roasting it, or putting it on a salad. But then, we really wanted to use some more of our Trader Joe’s multigrain bread since we are in love with it so much. And that’s when we put 1 + 1 together. Sweet Potato Burger. Or whatever you’d like to call it. It is kind of a mushy gushy patty with loads of flavor. But who’s complaining of a messy sandwich here? I don’t see anyone with their hand raised. Bring on the challenge.

Ingredients for Two Patties:

1 large sweet potato, diced

1/4 cup frozen mixed vegetables (Cascada Farms)

handful of spinach, torn into pieces

2 tbsp rolled oats

1 tbsp soy sauce

salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Dice sweet potato, add in 1 tbsp of water, and steam in a microwave safe bowl for 4-5 minutes or until tender.

Cook mixed vegetables according to package directions.

Put all ingredients into a bowl and mash together with a fork until well mixed.

Form into two patties and heat over medium high heat on a sprayed pan for 4-5 minutes on each side.

Needed for Assembly:

4 slices of Trader Joe’s multigrain bread

red onion, sliced

spinach

guacamole or avocado slices, spread onto bread
