Step 1: Ingredients

FOR THE PATTIES

- 2 c (15 oz / 425 grams) sweet potato, cooked and grated

- 3/4 c (4 oz / 100 grams) beetroot, cooked and grated

- 3/4 c onion, chopped

- 1/2 c green bell pepper (capsicum), chopped

- 1/2 tsp. fried red chilli flakes

- 1 tbsp. ginger, grated finely

- 4 mint leaves

- Salt, to taste

- 1/4 c garlic flavoured bread crumbs

- 6 tsp. oil

FOR THE BURGER

- 6 Burger Buns

- 6 Iceberg Lettuce leaves

- 1 cucumber, sliced into 1/4" pieces

- 1 large onion, sliced into 1/4" rings

- 2 large tomatoes

Step 2: Mix and Shape the Patties

- In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the ingredients (except the grated beetroot). Finally stir in the beets using a form, just until it's dispersed without bleeding too much color into the mixture.

- Divide batter into 6 and shape into 1 inch thick patties. Place patties on a baking tray lined with cling film or wax paper.

Step 3: Fry and Assemble

- Heat a little oil (about 1 tsp per patty) in a pan and fry the patties over medium heat until slightly browned on both sides.

- Assemble the burger with lettuce, fried patty, onion rings, cucumbers, tomato and any other fillers you like.

    It really is awesome to eat - and you can grab another one, free from all forms of guilt - sweet potatoes are crazy rich in nutrients!
