What are vegan burgers made out of?

Most vegan burgers are made out of mushrooms or beans as a base product. You can enrich the flavors and texture by adding different kind of veggies, spices, nuts, seeds, and grains.

But have you been looking for a vegan burger without any mushrooms or beans?

Here you have these great nutritious vegan burgers made with quinoa and sweet potato. So much flavor and nutrition in one bite. At the same time, you get full quality plant protein as quinoa contains all essential amino acids.

How to store

These Sweet Potato Burger Patties are one of my favorite meals. You can make them ahead of time.

Prepare the raw mixture for the patties and store it in a large bowl covered with plastic foil in the fridge for up to 1-2 days. You can shape the burger patties right before baking or store them already shaped.

Store cooked patties in an air-tight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. They are good even cold. You can reheat them in the oven or put them on a medium heated pan for several minutes on each side.

  1. With all respect, it’s great that you’re sharing and teaching about the benefits of Quinoa and your favorite recipes but…. why not teach about soaking the Quinoa to remove the saponins? It will be easier to digest and less bitter. Even better if you do a large batch and toast it. It can be refrigerated for other recipes. Soaking grains in general is something that other cultures do for reasons not so obvious to Americans…. Keep up the good work doctor!

  2. 5 stars
    I made these patties and topped them with the recommended cashew sauce. I loved how they browned a bit on their underside, so next time I’ll try turning them over halfway through so they get this way on both sides. My husband and I loved them!
