Sweet Potato Mushroom Burgers with Cranberry Coconut Sauce

Makes 6 patties

Cranberry Coconut Sauce

Inspired by Oh She Glows

Makes about 1 and 1/2 cups of sauce (recipe can easily be multiplied)

2 cups fresh cranberries

2 d’anjou pears, peeled and finely chopped

1/4 cup of maple syrup

1 tbsp coconut oil

In a medium sized sauce pot bring all ingredients to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the cranberries have burst and the sauce thickens.

The Burgers

1 small yellow onion, diced

10 oz. cremini mushrooms, chopped

3/4 cup cooked brown rice

1 medium sweet potato, baked and mashed

20 minutes medium low heat saute veggies

1 tsp of tarragon

1/2 tsp of oregano

1/4 tsp of rosemary

To make these burgers, start by heating the oven to 400 degrees.

Next, heat a large skillet with 1 tbsp of olive oil and sauté the onion, mushrooms, tarragon, oregano, and rosemary for 20 minutes.

Then, in a large mixing bowl mash together the brown rice, sweet potato, and the onion and mushroom mixture.

Form into about six patties and bake in the oven for approximately 25 minutes. These burgers are a bit crumbly, but unbelievably delicious! Enjoy!

Happy Monday,

Sydney
