Hello, it’s Ciara here again from My Fussy Eater and I’m delighted to be back here on Super Healthy Kids sharing my recipes and ideas for feeding picky eating families. Today I’ve got summer on my brain and nothing says summer like big juicy burger eaten on picnic blankets in the garden!

 

In an effort to get my children to eat a more varied diet and to eat less meat in general, I decided to make these Veggie Burgers. They are super easy to make and contain just two basic but really nutritious ingredients; sweet potato and chickpeas, mixed with some cajun seasoning and garlic powder.

 

The amount of cajun seasoning you should add will depend on how mild or spicy you want your burgers to be. You can also change up the flavour altogether by adding other herbs and spices; these burgers are completely customizable!

These burgers are gluten, dairy, egg and nut free so they make a great choice for families dealing with allergies and are also suitable for vegans too. I also made a delicious vibrant green Avocado Mayo to go with them, which is so tasty in the burger or just used as a general dip for crudites or chips!

 

I think its worth mentioning here by I didn’t use a food processor to break down the chickpeas and mix them with the sweet potato. If you make the burgers this way the mixture becomes to wet and mulchy and you then need to add in some breadcrumbs to firm it up. However, by mashing the chickpeas by hand with a fork they keep some of their texture which holds the burger together better and also gives them a lovely bite.

Freezing the patties before cooking is also another essential tip as this makes them completely firm so that they don’t fall apart as they cook.
