I’m always trying to better what we eat, and one of the things I’m making a concerted effort to do is cram in those veggies! So what better way to do that than with chickpea sweet potato veggie burgers? These were a hit, despite Miss 6 being in the throes of the recovery period from her tonsil and adenoidectomy. They are really easy to make and I’ve included two lots of steps, one for the thermocook and one for conventional methods.
Now a burger, well it just isn’t a burger without your normal fillings, so we had cheese, tomato, cucumber and lettuce on hand to fill our buns. The patties weren’t quite big enough for these large buns, and they would have been even yummier if they were on brioche buns, so that’s what I’ll make next time!
By eating one of these patties at lunchtime, you know your kids are pretty well set up for the day and that you’ve done a good job encouraging veggies. The best thing about them? You aren’t compromising on taste, because these taste amazing!
The texture of these is quite similar to fritters, so if your kids like those, you’re good to go! I cooked mine in egg rings in a frypan to try and achieve a rounded shape and it worked really well. The good thing about them, they are fairly forgiving, so feel free to swap the carrot and zucchini for other things your kids like.
