There is not much I can say about this one, besides that it is absolutely delicious. The combination of sweet potatoes, guacamole and feta cheese is my all-time favorite (be it a salad, a tapas plate or a soup). But, I just came up with an idea of creating a burger out of my favorites, and I have to say I am still rejoicing about this experiment.
I have to warn that you won’t be able to eat this burger with hands since it’s too soft and fragile. To me, this is rather an advantage since I like this endlessly juicy consistency. But still worth keeping it mind for those who plan a “stand-up” dinner 😉 In case you what it to be a party food, I would recommend preparing mini-baby burgers and making sure that there are mini-forks available.
Either way, it’s a must try!
- 1 large sweet potato
- 1/3 teaspoon of thyme leaves
- 2 spoons of almond flour (plus extra for coating)
- 1/2 teaspoon of chili powder
- salt, pepper, olive oil
- 1/2 of ripe avocado
- 1/4 or even 1/6 teaspoon of chopped red chili (depending on the spiciness of the chili)
- 1/2 teaspoon of chopped coriander leaves
- juice of 1/2 lime
- salt, pepper
- several slices of a juicy tomato
- several slices of feta cheese
- Peel sweet potato and cut into wedges or large cubes. Place on the baking tray. Drizzle with some olive oil. Sprinkle with thyme leaves, salt, and pepper.
- In the oven heated to 200 degrees °C, bake the wages for 30 minutes. Check with the fork. If it’s still a bit raw inside, bake for some extra time. Remove from the oven and allow to cool down.
- Meanwhile, prepare guacamole by mashing avocado and mixing it with lime juice, salt, pepper, chili and coriander leaves.
- Mash sweet potato wedges with a fork. Add almond flour and chili powder and mix well. Form with hands 2 buns, coat them in the almond meal.
- Cook the buns in a pan over a medium heat with a splash of olive oil until they are crisp and golden on both sides (2 minutes on each side).
- Construct your burger by layering sweet potato buns with guacamole, tomatoes, and feta cheese.
