Moroccan Sweet Potato Burgers [Vegan]






  • 1 large sweet potato, about 2 cups, diced
  • 1/2 cup quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup garbanzo beans, cooked
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 med carrot, shredded
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1/3 cup tahini
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon coriander
  • 3/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper (a little more if you need more spice in your life)


  1. Preheat oven for 400ºF.
  2. Boil a pot of water. Cook sweet potato until it is tender.
  3. In another pot, cook quinoa in water. Bring both to boil, then turn down heat and cover. Once water is gone, the quinoa should be nice and plump!
  4. Meanwhile, saute, onions and garlic in a little oil until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Then add carrots and cook a few more minutes.
  5. Once the quinoa and potatoes are done, put them in a food processor with oats, tahini, cilantro and spices. Mix until everything is well combined. In a bowl, mix the potato and quinoa mixture with your carrots and onions.
