Sweet Potato and Spicy Peanut Butter Burgers

Ingredients

Patties
  • 1 1/3 cup chickpeas, rinsed, drained and mashed
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 1 tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tbsp + 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup oat flour
  • ¼ cup peanuts, chopped
  • 1/3 cup Mamba’s Crunchy Spicy Peanut Butter
  • 1/4 cup green onions, chopped
  • 1 tsp grated garlic
  • 3/4 cup sweet potato puree
  • Pepper, to taste
Sweet and Salty Spicy Peanut Butter Sauce
  • 2 tbsp Mamba’s Original Spicy Peanut Butter
  • 1 tsp maple syrup
  • 1 1/4 tsp rice vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp water
  • Pepper, to taste

 

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 200ºC and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. To a large bowl, add all ingredients of the patties. Using a spatula fold until well incorporated. Taste and adjust seasonings by adding more soy sauce for saltiness, rice vinegar for acidity or garlic for a little kick.
  3. If the mixture is too wet, add some oat flour, one tablespoon at a time, mixing well between each addition.
  4. Shape the mixture into 4-6 patties, packing each tightly between your hands so it does not crumble. Place each patty on the prepared baking sheet.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes. Flip the patties and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
  6. In the meantime, prepare the sauce. In a small bowl, add all ingredients of the sauce and using a fork, whisk until fully combined and homogeneous. Taste and adjust seasonings by adding more peanut butter for a stronger peanut flavor, more maple syrup for sweetness, and rice vinegar for acidity. If the sauce is too thick to your liking, add a bit of water, ½ teaspoon at a time, mixing well between each addition.
  7. Serve the patties in a burger bun along with the sweet and salty peanut butter sauce and your favorite toppings (such as arugula, tomato, cucumber, parsley and green onions…).
