PREPARATION

Healthiest Vegan Recipes

Start by cooking the rice and steaming the sweet potatoes. Cook rice according to directions on your package. For the sweet potatoes place them in a pot with about 2 oz. of water and a lid, let steam on low-medium heat for about 15-30 minutes depending on heat level and if you use fresh or frozen, once they are mash able with a spoon they are done!

Next while those are cooking, chop the onion and pineapple and place in a large mixing bowl so it is ready!

Once rice and potatoes are done, add the rice to the big bowl with the pineapple and onion and let the rice cool until you are able to touch it without getting burned (about 10 minutes) , then mash the sweet potatoes in the pot before adding to the rice mixture, then add the sweet potatoes and mix everything really well!

Add the chili powder with a pinch of black pepper. Mix until everything is well incorporated!

add the olive oil and flax egg if you are choosing too.

Spray a skillet with non-stick spray or use a non-stick skillet. Form burger shaped patties and gently place them in the skillet. Cook about 7 minutes on each side, on medium heat or until they start to look crispy on the outside. Be careful while flipping them and do not cook these on the grill!

This makes about 5 good sized burgers.
