Sweet Potato and Mushroom Burger (serving: 5 burger patties)

1 large sweet potato, skinned + diced

5 Bella mushrooms, sliced

1/4 red onion, diced

1/2 cup brown rice, cooked

2/3 cup of gf Panko breadcrumbs + extra 1/4 cup for rolling burgers (if not gluten-free, use regular panko breadcrumbs)

2-3 tbsp olive oil or coconut oil, for cooking 

 

Place diced sweet potato chunks into a pot with water over medium heat and let boil for 20 mins or until the pieces are softened. 

In another pot, place 1/2 cup of brown rice with 1 cup water and cook. 

Place chopped mushrooms and onion  in a saucepan over medium heat and sauté until grilled to your desire. 

Drain sweet potatoes and mash in a large bowl. 

Add cooked rice into the bowl with mashed sweet potato. 

Add in the grilled mushrooms and onion. Mix them in with the rice and potato. Use a potato masher to mash them together. 

Add in the 2/3 cup of gf panko breadcrumbs. Use a spoon to mix them in. 

Use your hands to turn the mixture into patties. 

Sprinkle the extra breadcrumbs on a plate and place each patty on the plate to pat the breadcrumbs on the top and the bottom. 

Add oil into a saucepan over medium heat. Cook each patty for 4 mins on each side or until each side is golden brown. Top with vegan cheese if you desire. 

Eat patty on a bun or lettuce wrap. Enjoy!
