Sweet potato and almond butter burger

These vegan burgers – made with sweet potatoes, borlotti beans and almond butter – are high in fibre and low in saturated fat; a healthier burger recipe.

Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Cooking Time 15 min


  • 300g sweet potato, peeled and chopped into bite-size chunks
  • 400g tin of borlotti beans, drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
  • 1tsp yeast spread
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • 2tbsp crunchy almond butter (we used Meridian)
  • 1tbsp oil
  • Flour to dust
  • Burger buns, lettuce, roasted peppers, hot sauce, onion rings and extra almond butter, to serve


  1. Boil a kettle, pour the water into a saucepan and carefully add the sweet potato. Cook for 8 minutes until tender. Drain well.
  2. Heat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan. Put all of the ingredients except the oil and flour into a food processor and season well. Pulse a few times until the mixture has blended but still retains some texture.
  3. Tip the mixture onto a clean work surface and divide into four portions. Then, dust your hands with flour before shaping each portion into burger-shaped patties. Set aside on a flour-dusted plate.
  4. Pour the oil into a large frying pan over a medium heat and cook the burgers for 8 minutes on each side until well browned. Serve in burger buns with lettuce, roasted peppers, hot sauce and extra almond butter.

TIP: use a spatula to carefully turn the burgers, if they start to spread use the spatula to nudge back into shape.
