Falafel burger with spicy sweet potato fries and avocado hummus
I absolutely LOVE burgers and I love all kinds of burgers – haha specially the greasy, cheesy, meaty kind with fries and mayo, but since I try to eat healthy I only rarely have those. Yesterday I was craving burgers so badly, so in an attempt to keep my cravings in check I decided to make a healthier version of burgers and fries and it turned out so good that I thought I would share it with you guys – I hope you’ll like it!
Falafel burger patties
To make the burger patties I actually used the falafel recipe I posted a while back – find it here – it yields 4 patties.
Spicy sweet potato fries
Find the recipe here
1/ 2 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed (I used the other half for the falafel patties)
1 tblsp chopped red onion
1tblsp chopped red bell pepper
Juice from 1/ 2 a lemon
Garlic powder or fresh garlic (use as much or little as you like)
Salt and pepper to taste
A little water to blend, add a tablespoon at a time to make sure it doesn’t get too thin
The hummus was inspired by the lovely Daniella from Swedish Fitness Kitchen - find her recipe here!
