  • Summary

    Bursting with flavour, these Thai-inspired veggie burgers will make your every dream come true! The patties are made with a base of shredded sweet potato and chickpeas and are flavoured with fresh garlic, ginger, cilantro, basil, and a sprinkle of lime juice and sesame seed oil. To add some delicious crunchy texture, I've mixed in some chopped roasted and salted peanuts into the mix. These burgers are naturally gluten-free and you can make them soy-free by using coconut aminos instead of the tamari (or simply omit the tamari all together). See my note below on making this recipe nut-free. Peanut sauce is adapted from my Almond Butter Sauce.

    Ingredients

    • 1 large sweet potato
    • 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped
    • 1/4 cup fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
    • 3 large garlic cloves, minced

    • 1/2 cup roasted and salted peanuts, finely chopped
    • 3/4 cup gluten-free rolled oats, processed into a coarse flour
