A tasty Asian inspired vegan sweet potato & ginger burger!

Yummy! An Asian vegan burger!

Hello, my friends!! I am back from my Holiday & am full with energy! Ready to go back to my lovely blog & the world behind it!๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you all also had a great vacation!๐Ÿ˜‰ Now, back to some good food, I reckon!

Today, I made these invented Asian inspired sweet potato & adzuki bean burgers! Ooh yeah, mama! These are such beauties!

I filled them with lots of good stuff like ginger, spring onions, lime zest, red chili pepper, adzuki beans & cooked sweet potatoes. Ooh yes!ย Check them out!

Yummy & tasty home-made vegan burgers, ready to fry!

Asian spiced up vegan burger!

Recipe: For 4 large burgers + 2 smaller burgersย 


** For the Asian vegan burgers:

3 large sweet potatoes, ( 600 gr netto ), peeled & cut into 4

1 long red-hot chili pepper, deseeded & cut into smaller rings

4 fat spring onions, cleaned & cut into thicker rings ( green & white part used )

4 tablespoons of salted cashew nuts, cut finely

1/2 teaspoon of Maldon sea salt + 1/4 teaspoon extra

2 tablespoons of flour

150 gr of Panko breadcrumbs

zest of 1 lime, finely grated

One 3 cm x 2 cm piece of fresh ginger, peeled & finely cut up

1 handful of fresh coriander ( cilantro ) leaves, washed, pad dry on ย kitchen paper & torn roughly

5 to 10 grins of black pepper, finely milled

1 can of adzuki beans, well rinsed & well-drained

** To serve:

2 fat white onions, peeled & cut into finer rings

a vegannaise

salad leaves

fresh pistolets or fresh buns, sliced open


1. I cooked my sweet potatoes an hour before I made my burgers. I added a roasted garlic & pepper spice mix to my boiling water for added flavour. I used the brand: Santa Maria. I buy mine in the Delhaize. I added 8 grins. I didn’t add any salt because there is salt in this spice mix. I drained them well. Set aside to cool down a bit.

2. Take a large bowl & add the cut up salted cashews, the cut up chili pepper, the beans, the cooled down sweet potatoes, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt, the ginger, the cut up spring onions, the lime zest. Mix well with a wooden spoon & taste. It has to taste fabulous!๐Ÿ™‚ I added 10 grins of black pepper & the added 1/4 teaspoon of Maldon sea salt. Mix again. Taste! Now, I added 2 tablespoons of flour, to bind it a bit & then, I added the 150 gr of breadcrumbs. Mix well with a wooden spoon. My mix was still a bit wet but it will firm up in the fridge. Make 4 larger burgers out of them & 2 smaller one’s. Place them, spaced apart, on clean plates & place cling-film over them. Place into the fridge for at least 1 hour. I placed mine for 2 hours intoย the fridge.

3. 30 minutes before dinner, take the burger plates out of the fridge & remove the cling film. Take a large non-stick pan & heat up on high. Pour that fruity evoo in your pan & heat up. Fry your onion rings in some fruity olive oil & season with sea salt & black pepper. Fry until browned & cooked through. In the same pan, add some olive oil & heat up. Fry your burgers on both sides for about 4 to 5 minutes until cooked through & browned. Now, plate up! Take your bun or pistolet & smear it with vegannaise. Top with salad leaves, your vegan yummy burger & some fried sliced onion rings ย & top with some vegannaise & close your bun! This is heaven on a plate: all veganized! Ooh yeah, baby! Enjoy! Happy Eating!๐Ÿ™‚

Noteย : Maybe, next time, I will add a lot more of the Panko breadcrumbs because the burger can still fall apart a bit!!!๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    That sound really, really delicious. Wondered if the burgers will hold together better if you use glutinous rice flour instead of flour and panko breadcrumbs?
