I really fancied a bean burger this week, and so I made some.
Super easy- a tin of beans, a couple of small (baked) sweet potatoes, some paprika, a tsp flour, some black pepper. Lime juice would be good- I might add that next time if I remember. Oh, I also added a tsp of egg replacer to help bind them together.
Mash it all up.
Shape into burgers and place on an oiled tray (I flipped them over so they had a little oil on both sides).
Bake for about 25/30 mins.
Serve! I had mine in a pitta (a yummy Food Doctor one as they were on offer), with some relish, baby avocado, a gherkin, roasted veggies and spinach.
Yum indeed, and so simple to make. And, bonus, I have 3 more in the freezer for an even easier dinner 🙂
I had another Sweatshop run last night- I was meant to get my free t-shirt (again) but they didn’t have any in stock- boo! Will have to cross my fingers for next week. Anyway, we did a new route which was lovely, and again I managed to start off a little slower and finish a bit faster.
Right, off to body pump now! For those of you that do it, what do you think of the cool down track? I absolutely love it- I find it so uplifting and relaxing, but I have seen that some people don’t like it at all! I suppose it is different from the usual cool down tracks, but they are usually my least favourite ones, so it is a nice change that I actually enjoy it.

Oh I love bean burgers, you have just reminded me that I need to make my own soon!
Love making my own burgers!
Mmm, those burgers look great! I love the mashed sweet potato & bean combo in burritos too 🙂
We haven’t had the new release of Body Pump yet, but we are getting it on Monday…excited! 😀 As I said on Jemma’s post, we walked out to Con Te Partiro at our wedding, so I’m not sure how I’ll react to it being the cool down track…we shall see!! Our instructor said the lunge track is super hard too? He’s injured his knee practising it this last week which I find slightly concerning!!
There is some jumping in the lunge track- so that is quite tough, but I think it is shorter too so maybe OK overall.
I thought these would look good when I saw the post on Facebook – and I was right! Plus the bonus of having some in the freezer; it’s been all about quick dinners this week for me.
And I saw some Sweatshop runners near me this week so there might be one around, fingers crossed 🙂
How exciting- the Sweatshop near me is hidden away in a gym, with no signs outside or anything, so I only found out it was there when I ordered something online and the guy told me it was around the corner (as the courier picked it up from the store). So worth a look on their website 🙂
I had burgers in a pitta last week! So yummy, I do crave bean burgers at this time of year 🙂
anything with a sweet potato in it is a winner in my book 🙂 looks delicious.
These sound great! I love bean burgers and haven’t made any in a while, so I will have to make some next week.
I had seen a few people make them, and I just had not got around to making any for ages.
They sound very tasty I need to make some burgers its been ages! x
