Sweet Potato Patties | Healthy sweet potato Burger Buns
I said I will publish a Brazilian recipe to celebrate the World Cup 2014 but I was not really inspired by the Brazilian cuisine. So I finally came up with another idea. An healthy recipe to eat during the World Cup while watching the football games. Burger are my favorite finger food to watch games.
Sweet potato has a lower Glycemic index than potato or even white flour which makes them a perfect choice for a low carb burger bun. I used eggs and buckwheat flour to bring the batter together. Buckwheat flour contains lots of fiber and protein making those sweet potato patties very fulfilling. The burger has been garnished with grilled red onion + mushroom, rocket salad and raw avocado puree. The avocado puree is a perfect healthy switch to any burger sauce. It is naturally creamy, smooth and tasty.

- Place the burger buns and fry on each sides for at least 3-5 minutes or until crispy on the sides and cooked through.
