Rainbow Veggie Burger Recipe: Sweet Potato, Kidney Bean and Pepper Patties

July 04, 2018

It's been a long ol' while since a proper recipe post hasn't it?! I'm sorry I haven't been the most regular of bloggers recently, it's been a crazy few months! I've had university exams, assignments, a fieldtrip to Switzerland,  moved house, and have a busy job, so this little space on the internet has taken a bit of a backseat. I do have a few posts planned, so fingers crossed they'll get around to being posted hehe! 

Today, I've got a super healthy (but yummy) burger recipe for you all. They're suitable for vegetarians and vegans, so are also dairy free, and can easily be adapted to be gluten free too! These are packed fully of vitamins and fibre, so anyone that says burgers are unhealthy haven't tried these! You can also adapt to whatever you have in the cupboard- chickpeas, carrots and parsnips would also go great in these- basically throw in all your favourite veggies to see what works for you. Leave a message in the comments with your fave combos! If you have a favourite recipe too, drop those in the comments as I love trying out new veggie burger recipes too <3

Let's get started then...


2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 cup brown rice
Half a red onion, chopped
Half a red pepper, chopped
Tin of kidney beans, rinsed and drained
4/5 leaves wild garlic, or a crushed clove of garlic
1 teaspoon vegetable stock
1 teaspoon dried mixed herbs
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme
2 tablespoons flour
Cracked black pepper to season


1. Preheat the oven to 200 Celcius, grease a baking tray with oil or butter then sprinkle on some flour to prevent the burgers sticking.
2. Put the rice in a pan of  water, bring to the boil and cook for 10 minutes, before adding the sweet potato. Cook for a further 10 minutes.
3. Add the onion to the pan and cook for a further few minutes to soften.
4. Drain the pan, then add all of the other ingredients, stir well
5. Use a hand held blender to lightly pulse the mixture, so that it is smooth enough to form burger shapes but still has some texture.
6. Flour your hands then shape the mixture into balls then flatten onto the baking tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
