  • 2 1/2 cups cooked sweet potato
  • 1 14oz can chickpeas
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp red hot sauce

  1. Preheat the oven to 425. Combine the sweet potato, chickpeas, and garlic in a food processor along with the dry spices, hot sauce, and maple syrup. Process until mostly smooth but still a bit chunky. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add 1/2 cup bread crumbs and stir to combine. 

  2. Form the mixture into four patties and coat each patty with the remaining breadcrumbs. Place the patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 25 minutes at 425, flipping the burgers half way through.
