Project Description

Makes 5 veggie burgersvegan veggie burger patty


  • 1 large baked or steamed sweet potato
  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • a large handful of cilantro
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce (from a can)
  • 2 diced ribs of celery
  • 1/4-1/2 cup nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup Growing Naturals Original rice protein
  • 4 tbsp flax meal
  • cumin, salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Place all ingredients in a food processor and mix until you reach a desired consistency that you can shape into patties.
  3. Bake patties on a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet for 45-55 min and then let them cool off. They will firm up a little bit as they cool.  I made this with a southwestern flare but you could do any seasonings you like.
