About this Recipe
These burgers are loaded with flavor that’s healthy and good for you.
- 1/2 cup shelled hemp seeds
- 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
- 1/3 cup sunflower seeds
- 1 cup sweet potato (i.e., a smallish one)
- 1/3 cup creamed coconut (coconut block)
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- a big twist of black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg (freshly grated)
- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 1 tablespoon ground coriander
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
Step by Step Instructions
Grind the seeds to a meal in a food processor or blender. You are looking for a rustic meal (some fine, some rough).
Peel and grate your sweet potato.
Grate your creamed coconut block (or coconut butter). Be SURE to not use coconut cream by mistake as this will make it too soggy. You need to use CREAMED COCONUT (or coconut butter) which comes in a solid block.
Add all ingredients to the food processor and blend thoroughly until everything combines. You should be able to press together with your fingers and have it stick together perfectly.
Shape into 8 to 10 patties.
You can pop them into the fridge for a while to firm up if you would like, although not essential.
Place on the grill or under the broiler and tan on both sides — about 7 minutes each side, depending on your grill or broiler.
Enjoy immediately or eat cold at your leisure.
