In my family, the main meal of the day is lunch, we usually eat lunch a bit late sometime between 3PM and 6PM. Normally the meal includes some kind of meat whether it’s beef, lamb, chicken or fish. But sometimes I feel like we eat too much meat! I mean every single day!! And this is when I start thinking of delicious dishes that can fill you up but contain NO meat!
Yesterday we had stuffed cabbage rolls, one of my favourite meals! Not the easiest food to make as you have to roll every leaf, but it’s totally worth it! Sooo, I was in the mood for burgers, but eating meat everyday is just not very healthy… About two weeks ago, I was doing some grocery shopping with my Mum and we got some sweet potatoes, and this week my Mum kept nagging me how I should cook them as they’ve been sitting in the kitchen for too long. So I thought why not make some Sweet potato burgers with roasted garlic sauce, avocados, tomatoes, and yellow bell peppers. Sounds like a balanced meal? yep!

- Pierce potatoes and place in the microwave for 8 minutes on high each side, so that's 16 minutes. Remove from microwave and cool in room temperature.
- In a bowl, lightly mash beans, add egg, flour, salt, pepper, minced roasted garlic, and cumin. Mix, then place in the fridge for 10-15 minutes as this will help forming the mix into patties.
