  • 2-3 spring onions
  • 1 red pepper , finely chopped
  • 2/3 cup (70g) quick oats

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp (1g) cumin
  • 1/2 tsp (1g) coriander
  • 1 ½ tsp (5g) smoked paprika
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil , for cooking the patties

For assembling

  • 4-6 cheese slices
  • burger buns
  • Tomato slices
  • fresh lettuce
  • Red onion rings

  • Preheat the oven to 400F (200C). Cut sweet potatoes in about 1 inch (2.5 cm) pieces. Place the sweet potatoes into a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Sprinkle potatoes with cumin and olive oil.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes until tender. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Prepare the patties. In a large bowl, mash half of the beans, using a masher or simply a fork.
  • Add sweet potato and mash together with the beans. Add the remaining beans, red pepper, chopped onion, garlic, oats, spices, salt and pepper. Stir together to combine.
  • Divide mixture into 4 and form into 4 burger patties. (if your burger buns are smaller you can divide the mixture to form more patties).Refrigerate the patties for 20-30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, prepare the avocado sauce.
  • Mash the avocado with a fork. Add lemon juice, garlic, ang yogurt and mix to combine. Add salt and pepper and mix to combine. Set aside until ready to use.
  • In a large skillet, heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat. Cook sweet potato burger patties for 3-4 minutes on each side or until golden. (You can also consider baking the patties in the 375 (190C) preheated oven for 30-35 minutes).
  • While the patties are cooking, toast the burger bun halves, in the same skillet.
  • Add cheese on top of the patties about 2 minutes before the patties are finished cooking.
  • Assemble the burger.
  • Spread avocado yogurt sauce over the burger bun halves. Top with lettuce, add the burger with cheese, BBQ sauce if used, tomato and red onion slices. Top with the other half of the burger bun, secure with a skewer and enjoy!
