Homemade Sweet Potato Fries and Veggie Burgers!
So I love a good veggie burger, but the frozen store kind usually don’t cut it for me. That’s why I am always on the look out for different recipes for homemade ones. This one was good. Different for the others I have made. I liked the sunflower seeds in it a lot. I have never made sweet potato fries before but these were so awesome. MMm I wish I had made more because we ate them all!! I am really making good use of this Vegetarian Times magazine from my friend Laura both of these recipes are from this months issue.
3 cups cooked brown rice
1/2 onion chopped
1/2 cup shredded carrot (don’t grate your finger like I did!)
8 oz. cooked and mashed Chicpeas
4 oz. cooked and mashed red beans
2 eggs lightly beaten
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/3 cup sunflower seeds
1/2 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 cup dried Parsley
Add all ingredients into a bowl and mix. Form into 9 – 1/2 inch patties. Cook on a skillet over medium heat (coated with cooking spray) 4-5 mins each side. Or until golden brown on each side and/or cooked thru.
Sweet Potato Fries
2 medium to large sweet potato, cut into 1/4 inch thick french fries
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 cinnamon (optional, but it sure is good!)
1 tbs canola oil
2 tbs potato starch (also optional but helps make them crispy)
Mix fries a with salt, pepper, oil and cinnamon. Then if added starch add and mix to coat. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and line fries in a single layer in baking sheet and cook at 450 for 10 mins. Take out of oven and flip then cook another 12 mins. Or until golden and crispy. For the last few mins. I turned on the broiler to help with their crispyness.
