Chipotle Maple Sweet Potato Burgers [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan





Cook Time



  •  2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 pound), diced small
  •  1 tablespoon olive oil
  •  1 medium yellow onion, diced small
  •  1 large garlic clove, minced
  •  1 1/2 cups quick cooking oats, dry
  •  1/4 cup pecans, minced
  •  2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  •  2 tablespoons flax meal
  •  1 teaspoon kosher salt
  •  1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder
  •  1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  •  3 tablespoons maple syrup
  •  8 hamburger buns


  1. In a medium saucepan, add the diced sweet potatoes and cover with water. Add a dash of salt and bring to a boil over high heat. Then, reduce to low and simmer for about 15 minutes until very tender. Drain and set aside for later.
  2. In a medium frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium-low. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for about 10 minutes, until the onions are brown and fragrant.
  3. In a large bowl, add the oats, through and including the pepper. Whisk well to combine. Add the boiled sweet potatoes and the onion mixture as well as the maple syrup. Using a wooden spoon, mash the sweet potatoes and mix everything together very well.
  4. Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Coat your hands with a non-stick cooking spray and form the burger mix into eight large patties. Arrange on the baking sheet in a single layer.
  5. Bake at 400°F for about 45 minutes, turning the patties over halfway through. Once done, remove from oven and allow to rest for about 5-10 minutes. This will set the patties.
  6. Serve hot, with barbecue sauce. Freeze the leftovers for a quick meal later.

Black Bean burger or spicey falafels!

We tried Gardein burgers and liked them. For homemade, I like black bean using the recipe from Minimalist Baker or the China Study cookbook's southwestern burgers, with refried black beans.

If it's on a bun, it can't be squishy. No matter what's in it or how good it tastes.

I love smoky lentil burgers with barbecued onions. To die for!

Why is your site carrying prominent advertising for products that are tested on animals (Crest toothpaste and Oil of Olay)? Talk about hypocritical.

W/o the bun ( breads high in calories / sugar )

Stick it into a wrap with all your trimmings like a burrito!

Sounds delicious, BUT.... why call it a burger? Is a "burger" just a patty shape? Can I have a lettuce spinach burger just because it is a burger shape? Im truly curious.

Why not call it a burger. That's what it is. A burger isn't a cut of meat if that's what you're worried about.
