Bean Burgers with Quinoa and Sweet Potatoes


  • 1/2 dl quinoa
  • 1/2 x sweet potato
  • 1/2 x red onion
  • 200 g kidney beans
  • 20 g taco spice mix
  • 4 slices bread
  • 20 g lamb's lettuce
  • 1/2 dl sour cream


  1. For this dinner, we'll be using half of the leftover guacamole and pico de gallo made earlier this week.
  2. Cook the quinoa according to the instructions on the package.
  3. Dice the sweet potato into small cubes, and bake in the middle of the oven at 225 degrees for about 10-15 minutes, or until tender throughout.
  4. Chop the red onion and add to the food processor along with taco seasoning, baked sweet potato and kidney beans. Blend until you have a well combined, yet textured dough. Transfer to a bowl and mix with the cooked quinoa. If you don't have a food processor, you may mash everything by hand.
  5. Shape the dough into burger patties. If the dough is a little sticky, wet your hands a little and continue. Place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, and bake on the middle rack of the oven at 225 degrees for about 20 minutes. Flip the patties halfway.
  6. Serve the veggie patties on bread with sour cream, lamb's lettuce, pico de gallo and guacamole.
