Vege Burger
  1. Mash the chickpeas and peas together in a large bowl with a fork.
  2. With your hands, squeeze as much moisture from the grated sweet potato before adding it the bowl.
  3. Add all the other ingredients (except the oil) and mix well.
  4. Take a big spoonful of the mixture and roll into a ball with your hands. Flatten the ball and place on a plate. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  5. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick frypan. Add patties to the frypan being careful not to overcrowd and allow room to turn each pattie.
  6. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown, then flip over and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Place on a paper towel while you cook the rest of the patties.


  • If you have a food processor add all the ingredients and blitz until you get a chunky but sticky texture. Then continue from step 4.
  • Substitute grated carrot or pumpkin for sweet potato.
