Sweet Potato Quinoa Burgers

Everybody is grilling these days, or at least making burgers, and the standard fare for vegetarians when it comes to a burger is still pretty sad.  Enter the sweet potato quinoa burger....... and the meal is saved!

More inventive fare
Sweet Potatoes and Quinoa
For veggie burgers
  •  1/2 cup of lentils, dry
  • 1/2 cup quinoa, dry
  • 2 medium sweet potatoes
  • one medium onion
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1 Tbsp curry powder
  • 1 Tbsp ketchup
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Cook the lentils until soft (can/should be done in advance).
  2. Microwave or boil the sweet potatoes until soft and mashable.
  3. Cook the quinoa in 3/4 cup water for 10-12 minutes over low heat.
  4. Combine the lentils, mashed sweet potato (yes - go ahead and mash them), and quinoa in a medium sized bowl.
  5. Saute the onion in a bit of olive oil.
  6. To the medium bowl, add the onions, the grated carrots, the spices and the ketchup and stir thoroughly.  Make into patties and fry on a griddle or in a large pan.
 Making a curry mayonnaise to accompany these burgers is fantastic.  In a food processor, add one egg yolk, a teaspoon of rice vinegar, and 1 1/2 teaspoons of lemon juice.  Drizzle in 3/4 of a cup of canola oil slowly while blending.  Add 1 teaspoon of curry and 1/4 teaspoon of paprika to the mayonnaise and mix.

This burger is excellent with a field green salad and a tasty gin drink called the Everest.
