The Sweet Potato is a magical thing. I can recall being a young boy and my grandmother making Sweet Potato Pie. Now my sister has taken over those responsibilities and she’s performed admirably. But nothing beats Grandma’s pies. Those days are gone, but the Sweet Potato still remains.

What I didn’t know at the time is how diverse the use of Sweet Potatoes could be; desserts, snacks, spreads and this just in…Burgers??

Apparently in an endless quest to create delicious dishes for vegetarians and vegans, the sweet potato has found it’s way into the cookbook as a burger. It’s high in fiber, contains tons of essential vitamins and nutrients and some research even suggests that it is a low glycemic index food, which means it shouldn’t spike blood sugar like other types of potatoes. So have no fear diabetics…The sweetness in Sweet Potatoes shouldn’t kill you. (Literally!)

Anyhow, I was inspired by a friend who posted a photo of a Sweet Potato Burger on his Facebook page. I immediately ran to the grocer and grabbed a few small sweet potatoes and got to work. There are tons of different recipes out there on the net, but I decided to create my own and I must say…Dayum it was good.

My attempt doesn’t quite look like the inspiration, but it will suffice.


Here’s the recipe

1-2 small Sweet Potatoes
1/4 cup Almonds (ground into a flour)
1 cup Oats (ground into flour)
2 teaspoons of sea salt
2 teaspoons ground Cumin
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 teaspon ground black pepper:
