Meatless Monday: Sweet potato burgers



Serves 4 
1 large sweet potato, baked
½ onion finely chopped
½ small beetroot, diced (optional)
1 can organic beans
1 tsp bouillon powder 
2 tbsp nutritional yeast 
oats to bind
½ tsp chilli flakes (optional)

Mash the sweet potato and add the beans.  Mash lightly so that there are still some whole beans in the mixture.  Stir in bouillon and nutritional yeast and bind with oats so that the mixture is firm enough to handle.  Form into 4 burgers and place on a baking tray sprayed with olive oil.  Spray the top of the burgers with olive oil spray and place in the oven at 200 degrees for 20 minutes, turning once.  Serve with salad or vegetables, such as corn on the cob or on a wholemeal roll with salad or guacamole.  If you like your burgers spicy add ½ tsp chilli flakes.

Did you know- nutritional yeast is a deactivated yeast.  Because it is deactivated, it may be incorporated into the diet of people suffering from Candida infections. It is especially good for vegans because it is a source of  vitamin B12, which is often lacking in the vegan diet.  It is also a source of selenium, folic acid, zinc and protein.  It adds a nutty, ‘cheesy’ taste when included in recipes.  Look out for more recipes with this wonder ingredient.

Enjoy!
