Confession time: I love burgers. There’s nothing better than sinking your teeth into a real “meaty” burger – and when I say “meaty,” I think you know I mean veggies! Burgers and fries, man… so freaking good. It’s time to get all-American, baby.
I fell in love with this recipe from fellow blogger, Peachy Palate. The recipe below is adapted from this! [Thanks for the inspiration, Michelle!]
You will need:
- 1/2 cup cooked black beans
- 2 sweet potatoes, cooked and mashed up
- 1/4 cup brown rice
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tbs ground flaxseed
- 1 tbs coriander
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 cup almond meal
- Salt and pepper, to taste
Step 1: In a large bowl, combine beans, sweet potatoes, spices, almond meal, and flaxseed.
Step 2: Sauté onions and garlic until lightly cooked, and add to large bowl.
Step 3: Mash it up!
Step 4: Add cooked brown rice, and combine.
Step 5: Shape into patties and cook over medium heat until lightly browned on each side. Freeze leftovers! This recipe is good for about 4-5. Extras for later are the best :)
Toss on your favorite vegan bun and add ALL the fixings! My FAVORITE is Earth Balance mayo mixed with ketchup (also known as “fancy sauce,” props to Step Brothers), tomato, lettuce, and… BANANA PEPPERS! Love me some banana peps!!
It’s french fry time, baby! You will need:
- 4 large russet potatoes
- 1-2 tbs olive oil
- Salt to taste
Step 1: Cut up fries – long-ways.
Step 2: Toss in a bowl with olive oil and salt.
Step 3: Bake at 450 F for about 25-30 minutes, or until golden and crispy.
Mmmmm fries. Love potatoes… this are so simple and so addictive! You could do the same with sweet potato fries, too.
Oh man… to die for, people. xx Bianca
