Sweet Potato and Beetroot Veggie Burgers


I was craving veggie burgers the other day but had loads of stuff in the fridge that needed using up; but hey presto, I whizzed it all together and got the veggie burgers of my dreams! I would definitely say to use this as a guideline, and substitute or add/remove as necessary – as it’s always best to just use what you have, but the general idea is the same.

Makes 6-8 burgers.


  • 1 large sweet potato (or 2 small ones), boiled and mashed.
  • 2 small boiled beetroots
  • 2 carrots, grated or spiralised
  • handful of spinach
  • handful of kale
  • 1-2 slices of bread (blended into breadcrumbs)
  • 1 egg (whisked)
  • pinch of salt/pepper
  • flour (as needed)
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric (optional)
  • chilli flakes (optional)


  1. Blend the beetroot, spinach, kale, carrot together so it’s fine and free from lumps.
  2. Add the blended vegetables, breadcrumbs and egg to the mashed sweet potato

  3. Combine in to a dough and add flour as necessary so that it all comes together
  4. With floured hands, pull parts of the dough and roll around in your hands to make balls before making into a burger shape.


  5. If you’re planning on freezing, I would recommend individually wrapping in clingfilm as the dough can stick together and this makes it easier to grab when de-frosting.
  6. To cook straight away, stick the patties straight into a hot pan with coconut oil and cook until the outside is golden brown and crispy.


  7. Stick in a bun or with a salad and you’re good to go! Tastes great with hummus 🙂



Let me know if you give them a try 🙂
