  • 1/2 cup gluten-free oats
  • 1 tbsp mustard, ensure vegan and gluten-free
  • 2 tbsp tamari
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tsp cumin

  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Heat the olive oil in a pan. Add the carrots, bell pepper and onion, cooking for 5-6 minutes, until softened.
  • Transfer the vegetables to a blender or food processor. Next, add the black beans, oats, mustard, tamari, tomato paste, cumin, turmeric, smoked paprika, dried basil, dried thyme, and garlic. Blend on a low speed until mostly smooth, but some texture remains.
  • Transfer the mixture to a mixing bowl and add the mashed sweet potato. Stir together well.
  • Form the burger patty mixture into even-sized balls and flatten them down on a baking tray lined with parchment paper.

To bake the sweet potatoes, reheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 F) and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Poke the potatoes a few times with a fork, and bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes, until fully cooked through and caramelised.
