Curried Sweet Potato and Chick Pea "Burgers"-shared from The Sweets Life
2 cups chick peas
2-3 small sweet potatoes, baked
1 tsp curry powder
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped(optional)
salt and pepper to taste
favorite toppings:tomato, lettuce, mayo, ketchup
Scoop potatoes out of skin, place in a bowl. Add in chick peas and mash throughly. Season with curry powder, salt, and pepper, parsley if using. Mix to combine. Scoop out and form patties. (I got 4 big burgers and 6 mini burgers) Place on hot grill or pan and cook for 5-6 mins per side.
**I wasn't sure how these were going to stay together, but they stayed together perfectly! You never would have known they were a bean burger! We all really liked them, even the 3 kids at least tasted them. The curry was a perfect addition and it wasn't to strong. We weren't sure what would be good on them, I really liked it with tomato and mayo, our friend liked his with ketchup and mayo. Overall they were a great hit!
