I am dying to share this gluten-free recipe with you. For one, these sweet potato chickpea sesame patties are super easy to make, but more importantly, they are healthy, vegan and grain-free. The patties are made with sweet potatoes, chickpeas, sesame seeds, fresh parsley, and a unique blend of spices. I have added coconut flour which gives the patties just the right texture and some fresh lemon juice which ties everything nicely together. Seriously, these versatile patties make for a delicious mouth full. The best part, these patties make great vegan burgers or add them to your favourite salad. For me, I keep them on hand for any time protein packed snack. On a side note, chickpeas nutrition not only contains essential protein, about 15 grams per cup of cooked beans but also has many other important nutrients and are high in fiber. Oh, I almost forgot, when you make a burger load it up with avocado, onion, tomatoes, lettuce or thinly sliced cabbage and your favourite vegan mayo, YUM!

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups mashed sweet potato, about 1 pound
  • 1 (400 ml) can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) with liquid
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup roughly chopped parsley
  • 1 Tbsp. Sesame oil, plus some for frying
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. Sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. Fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Pure sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. GF ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. GF ground cumin
  • 1/4 tsp. GF ground nutmeg
  • Check out our store for gluten-free ingredients
  • Instructions

  • To prepare potatoes; pierce potatoes all over with a sharp knife and roast at 375 F for 35 - 45 minutes, or until soft. Cool for about 5 minutes and peel
  • Place sweet potatoes and remaining ingredients into a food processor and blend until the mixture is almost smooth but still has some texture. Refrigerate for 30 minutes
  • Scoop the mixture out by the 1/4 cup and form into about 3/4-inch-thick patties that are about 3 inches in diameter.
  • Heat about two tablespoons of sesame oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium heat until shimmering. Fry patties until golden-brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side
  • Note; when you’re making the patties, they will be delicate. Just do the best to shape them and make sure you get both sides nice and crispy
