  • Combine sweet potatoes, quinoa, trail mix, golden beet, red beet, flour, bread crumbs, oil, onion, parsley, tamari, sea salt, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Mix by hand until burger mix is thoroughly combined.

  • Divide burger mix into 10 portions; press each one firmly into a patty. Place on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 20 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

For easy measuring, 2 sweet potatoes will yield roughly 2 1/2 cups when boiled and mashed.

My trail mix had pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, cranberries, peanuts, and cashews.

The onion taste comes through quite strongly, so feel free to cook your onion first or substitute a shallot instead.

I like to make my burgers heart-shaped.

Loved these. I didnt have whole wheat bread crumbs so I used what was in the cupboard. Golden beets may be a little tricky to find.. I only found them in organic vegetable area not with regular vegetables. The almonds were the best part of the trail mix I used in the burger so next time I will use a higher ratio of those I think.. I had these cold too during 110 degree weather.. yum Read More

As this recipe is the burgers are too mushy. I do really like the taste though! I gave it 4 stars only with the following changes. Use only 1-1/2 cups mashed sweet potatoes. Drain the beets. I think these two mod's will provide for a firmer burger. Other than that they are delicious! Read More

Yummy flavours! They held together well too. I used one big sweet potato, not sure how much it was. Read More
