Sweet Potato Rösti
Here is another recipe to help you construct your perfect Hybrid Burger. After you layer a couple slices of vegan smoked gouda on top of your spicy black bean burger, throw a sweet and savory sweet potato rösti into the mix to give your burger some extra height. The higher the burger, the closer to God...or is it the higher the hair...either way, these röstis will bring your taste buds in for a heavenly embrace.
2 medium sweet potatoes, grated
2 green onions, thinly sliced
2 large eggs, room temperature
¼ cup reduced fat Mexican-style cheese
2 tbsp fresh cilantro, finely diced
1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely diced
Zest of 1 lime
½ cup whole wheat flour
½ tsp garlic powder
½ tsp cumin
½ tsp black pepper
¼ tsp sea salt
1 tbsp chia seeds
Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Squeeze as much moisture from the sweet potato as possible. I find the easiest way to do this is to scoop up by the handful and squeeze over the sink, then pop into a clean mixing bowl.
Add green onions, cheese, egg, flour, cilantro, parsley, garlic powder and cumin to the mixing bowl, and mix well to combine.
Divide the mixture into 8 even portions and shape into balls with your hands and then flatten them to about ½ inch thick patties. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet.
Roast in the oven for about 25 minutes, flipping halfway through cooking so that both sides get golden brown.
