Amazing 10-ingredient Sweet Potato Chickpea Burger – ready in less than an hour with only 10 minutes of prep. Satisfying, healthy, and off-the-charts delicious. Vegan and gluten-free!
Veggie burgers. They can be tricky but once you get them right, they’re pretty great.
There are so many different ways to make a good veggie burger. You can use beans, lentils, grains and most kinds of veggies.
The base of these burgers are chickpeas and sweet potatoes with onion, garlic, lime juice, and spices. Add everything to your food processor, process, form patties, place them on a baking tray, and pop them in the oven.
To serve, I had them with a homemade burger bun, avocado, grated carrot, raw onion, and tomatoes. Hummus would definitely also be delicious!
I hope you’ll love these burgers as much as I do. Besides being moist, satisfying, colourful, and off-the-charts delicious, here’s also why I love them
1. They’re super versatile. They’re great in burgers, sandwiches, and wraps. They also make a great side to salads, stir-frys or baked vegetables.
2. They’re freezer-friendly. Make a big batch, freeze them, and reheat later for a quick dinner.
3. They’re gluten-free for all the people who need that.
4. They’re high in protein and fiber thanks to the chickpeas and sweet potato.
5. They’re full of essential vitamins and minerals, such as folate, iron, and beta-carotene.
6. Satisfying and flavourful, veggies burgers are almost always a crowd pleaser.

- 1 medium sweet potato, cubed (about 1 1/2 cup, 180 g)
- 1 can chickpeas, drained (240 g)
- 1/2 small onion, roughly chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
- 1/2 lime, the juice
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp chili powder
- 1 tsp basil
- 1 tsp oregano
- Salt and pepper (I used 1/2 tsp of each)
- Optional: burger buns to serve
- Mashed avocado
- Grated carrot
Cook the sweet potatoes in boiling water for 8-10 minutes or until soft. Let cool for a few minutes while you prepare the rest of the ingredients.
Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius (355 Fahrenheit) with the fan on.
Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend until everything is well combined.
Use a spoon to scoop out 1/5 of the mixture and form it into a pattie with your hands.
Make five equally sized patties and place them on a baking tray aligned with parchment paper.
Place in the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until slightly golden brown and firm.
Serve them in a burger bun with your favourite toppings or have them with a salad. Either way, enjoy!
Store leftovers in the fridge for 3-5 days or in the freezer for even longer. Simply reheat them in the oven for about 10 minutes.
