Sweet Potato Burgers

My mom told me that the black bean brownie picture was ugly. She’s right (but they’re so damn delicious that I couldn’t wait to prettify them before posting).

So for Mom (and Pete, and Dana, and everyone else that remarked on the unfortunate image of that delicious brownie), here’s a pretty picture—and a stupid-easy yummy recipe.

1 sweet potato, cooked (wash it, stab it, microwave it for 5 minutes, flip it, zap it for another 3-5 minutes, skin it)
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 cup sliced almonds
3 tbsp. ground flaxseed
3 tbsp. tahini

1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until thoroughly mixed.

2. Form mixture into burger-like shapes.

3. Heat oil in skillet and cook burgers for about 6 minutes on each side.

4. Top with pesto.

  1. I thought the brownie picture looked kind of like poop, but I didn't want to be mean. Now that I know other people commented, I don't feel so bad. I'm sure it tasted delicious!
