    • Pinch salt and pepper

Your favourite toppings:


    1.Pre-heat oven to 180’C.

    2. Slice sweet potato into 1/2 cm thick rounds (to become your burger buns).

    3. Brush both sides of sweet potato with olive oil and place on a lined baking tray. Bake in oven for 30-35 minutes or until tender, turning half way.

    4. In a mixing bowl roughly mash black beans (or pulse in a food processor).

    5. Add beans to your food processor with beetroot, quinoa, pumpkin, onion, chilli, cumin, salt and pepper. Pulse until well combined to form a textured paste.

    6. Line a large baking tray with baking paper. Using egg rings fill each egg ring on your baking tray with patty mixture and press down to shape. Remove ring and repeat until all mixture is used up. (You can also shape with your hands).

    7. Bake in oven for 25-30 minutes or until cooked and firm to hold.
