Kumara (Sweet Potato) and Cannellini Burger Patties
drained and rinsed cannellini beans
chunky peanut butter
(Pic’s is good)
smoky spice mix or smoked paprika
peeled and finely chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
good quality cooking oil to adjust texture so you can easily form the mix into patties
Crushed gluten-free cornflake crumbs
(Hubbard’s gluten free cornflakes are nice) to coat the patties
Wash and boil the kumara in a pot well seasoned with salt, then scoop the flesh out of their skins.
Place the warm kumara flesh in a large bowl and add the drained beans. Mash well – this may take a few minutes with a potato masher.
Add the peanut butter, maple syrup, garlic and spice and mix well.
Add oil as needed to get a handleable texture so you can form the mix into patties,
Coat the patties with cornflakes crumbs.
Heat a thin layer of cooking oil in a large frying pan and fry the patties for about 2-3 minutes each side until nicely browned.
Serve with salad or veges of your choice, or use as hamburger patties.
