The idea started with a challenge I posted to my 21 Day Vegan Challenge Facebook page. Participants were required to list an ingredient and choose three ingredients off of the list to create a meal. Kale and sweet potatoes were both on the list, and as I was walking through the grocery store last night the idea hit me: Why not make some type of burger? So I did.
So, I put my ingredients together and hoped for the best. A lot of my recipes are trial and error, and most of the time they turn out well. I didn't want to use black beans like I did in my previous vegan burger recipe, and I figured chickpeas would work just as well! They tasted great! They had just the right amount of crunch on the outside, and they were firm and exploding with flavor on the inside. I knew I would be on to something if they passed the husband taste test...
My husband is one of the hardest working people I know. He was exhausted going to work this morning and packed two burgers for breakfast. I got a call from him at 8:00 a.m., and he was fired up. He said, "I don't know what you put in those burgers, but they gave me so much energy!" I was so happy because not only did he like them, the superfood ingredients gave him a great energy boost for the day. Not caffeine. Not supplements. Just a fabulous plant based meal. When I started my vegan journey, he was so supportive, and encouraging, and I enjoy cooking great meals for such a great man.
Savory, filling, tasty, energy-boosting, and only ten ingredients to make.
