  • 1 cup cooked sweet potato (see below for note on cooking)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium yellow onion, roughly chopped
  • 1/2 bell pepper, seeded + roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 lbs sliced mushrooms, any kind
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp roasted or raw pumpkin seeds
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. If using fresh sweet potato, wrap sweet potato in tin foil and roast in a 425 degree oven for 1 hour. Let cool and then scoop out flesh and discard skins. Alternatively you can steam it in the microwave or purchase canned sweet potato.
  2. Add 1 tbsp of olive oil to a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions and bell pepper. Sauté for 5 mins or until onions are translucent.
  3. Add mushrooms and garlic and allow mushrooms to cook down for roughly 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in herbs and let cook for another 1-2 minutes.
  5. Turn off stove top and let mushroom mixture sit for 10 mins or until they have cooled slightly.
  6. Add sweet potato and mushroom mixture to a food processor or blender and pulse several times.
  7. Add in remaining ingredients except oats and pulse several more times until well combined.
  8. Add in oats and pulse several more times until mixture has thickened.
  9. Reheat the same skillet over medium heat and add remaining 1 tbsp of olive oil.
  10. Wet your hands and dip them into the burger mixture to form 6 burger-shaped patties.
  11. Cook on stove-top for 5 minutes on each side. You want the burgers to firm up but not burn. Turn down heat if burgers are burning.
  12. Serve in a bun or lettuce wrap with toppings of choice. Will keep in fridge for several days.
