Savory Spiced Sweet Potato Chickpea Burger

So, it’s pretty much been a burger bonanza around these parts since I bought an entire bag of hamburger buns that needed to be gobbled up. So, after I made the vegan mushroom burger, I got to thinking about what other sort of vegan burger I could create (since–let’s face the truth, here–black bean patties are the little black dresses of vegetarian burger options: the first thing to come to mind, everyone’s favourite, and just a touch overdone). So here’s the delicious recipe for Savory Spiced Sweet Potato Chickpea Burger I made.

  • 2 medium sweet potatoes baked and skinless
  • 1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • ½ cup oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 handful portobello mushrooms sliced
  • ¼ cup red onion sliced in rings
  • 1 pad vegan butter


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and caramelize the onions and mushrooms in a sauté pan on low heat with the vegan butter.
  • Mix up the chickpeas and sweet potato in a food processor.
  • Combine the mash with olive oil and spices in a mixing bowl.
  • Add the oatmeal (this is important to bind your burger, so it doesn’t fall apart, don’t deem this step irrelevant and skip it, or you’ll have a sad mashed potato on a bun).
  • Place a foil lining on a baking sheet and coat with a light layer of non-stick cooking spray.
  • Mould the sweet potato and chickpea mash into patties and place them evenly spaced on the baking pan.
  • Bake the veggie burgers for 15 minutes, then flip and bake for 10 minutes.
