  • 5 ounces firm tofu with the excess water squeezed out with a paper towel
  • 1 medium sweet potato peeled, cubed, cooked and mashed
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary chopped
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1/3 cup gluten free breadcrumbs or more if needed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Top with your favorite burger toppings I used avocado, red onions, sesame seeds, and vegan basil pesto
  1. Crumble tofu with your hands into a bowl. Add in the cooked sweet potato and with a fork mash them together. Add in the rest of the ingredients except the olive oil. Mix until combined.
  2. Form patties with your hands.
  3. Heat pan over medium heat and add olive oil. Cook patties for a few minutes on each side until browned. (Can bake these in the oven instead)
  4. Serve in burger buns or in lettuce wraps.
