Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-5 burgers
  • 1 cup tofu, soft, medium or firm - it does not matter
  • 2 large US sweet potato, roasted and mashed very well
  • ½ cup sweet corn
  • ½ cup panko crumbs
  • OPTIONAL: additional ½ panko crumbs for coating
  • Handful cilantro, finely chopped
  • ½ onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder, or 2 cloves fresh, minced
  • ½ tsp pepper, black or white
  • ¼ tsp cayenne
  • 1 Tbsp ground flax, mixed with 2½ Tbsp water
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 4-5 hamburgers buns
  • Toppings Suggestions:
  1. heat some olive oil in a pan on medium heat and cook the onions until soft, translucent and caramelized, about 15 mins.
  2. Mix up your flax seed and water and place in the fridge for 15 mins to set.
  3. In a food processor (or large bowl) mix all your ingredients, including the onions and flax mixture, (but minus the buns & toppings) until well combined. The burger mixture should stick together easily.
  4. Using water or olive oil on your hands to prevent the burger mixture from sticking, begin to form burgers with the mixture. Make sure you consider the size of your buns when forming your burger patties.
OPTIONAL: place additional panko crumbs in a shallow bowl and coat your burger patties on both side for extra crunch.
  1. Heat olive oil in a pan on medium high heat, and cook the burgers 5-6 minutes on each side, or until nicely browned.
  2. Toast your buns, top with your favourite burger toppings, sauces, the sweet potato burger, and serve!
Cooking options:
1. Bake these burgers in the oven at 450F for 10 minutes on each side.
2. Bake or fry the burgers in advanced, and then toss them on the BBQ later.
