Hemp Burgers Recipe
- 1 medium sweet potato (skin on)
- 1 can chickpeas (drained)
- 2 stalks green onion (root ends removed and chopped)
- 100 g Organic Hemp Seeds
- 1 tbsp. 100% Flax Seed Powder
- 2 cloves garlic (chopped and peeled)
- 50 g bread crumbs
- 2 tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes
- 1 tbsp. salt
Wash the sweet potato and prick with a fork several times. Place in the microwave and cook for 2 to 3 minutes until tender. Let it sit until cool enough to handle, then chop into cubes with the skin on.
Place sweet potato chunks and drained chickpeas in a food processor together. Pulse in short bursts until mostly combined, leaving some texture.
Reserve 2 tablespoons of the hemp seeds. Then add the remaining hemp seeds and the rest of the ingredients to the food processor. Pulse in short bursts until combined.
Place a skillet over a medium heat and heat oil.
Make four patties out of the mixture, pressing some of the reserved hemp seeds into both sides of the patties. Cook the patties for 5 minutes on each side until brown. Turn the head down to low and allow the burgers to sit for 5 to ten minutes in the warm skillet to firm up.
Serve patties on buns with your favourite burger toppings!
