A few days ago my sister and I made these fabulous Sweet Potato Burgers with Mango, Lime, and Cilantro Chutney. They were phenomenal!
The burgers were moist, chewy and had a lovely sweet flavor.
And the chutney. Oh the glorious chutney. It made this dish! I would make the chutney again and just eat it by the spoon! The citrus fruit paired with fresh cilantro and freshly grated ginger created a complex sweet, tangy and spicy flavor. Your taste buds will go crazy with all the amazing flavors in just one bite!
Make these simple, delicious and nutritious burgers today!
Sweet Potato Burger with Mango, Lime, and Cilantro Chutney
Makes 5 burgers
1 large sweet potato, cut into four wedges
1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup of fire roasted green chiles (mild)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
2/3 fresh pea shoots, chopped
3/4 cup mango, diced
2 tbsp cilantro, chopped
1 tsp honey
~2 tsp freshly grated ginger
Juice from half a lime
To make the burgers start by roasting the sweet potato in an oven set to 400 degrees for 40 minutes.
When the sweet potatoes are done (keep oven on), scrape the potato away from the peel into a large mixing bowl.
Add in the cannellini beans, green chiles, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix/mash the patty mixture to your desired consistency.
Note: I would recommend adding in about a 1/2 cup cooked brown rice at this point too, in order to make the burgers extra hearty and give them a firmer texture.
Make approximately five patties and place them on a baking sheet and cook for 15 minutes, flip, and cook for another 10 minutes in the oven.
While the burgers are cooking you can make the chutney! Start by mashing the diced mango by hand with a fork in a small mixing bowl. Mash until mostly puréed, but with a few chunks left over.
Then add in the cilantro, honey, ginger and lime juice and mix until combined. Set aside until burgers are done.
When the burgers are done, and are nice and crispy gold on the outside, take them out of the oven and serve them on a whole wheat english muffins with pea shoots and topped with the homemade chutney! Enjoy!
