  • 1.

    Prep all ingredients - grate carrot, finely chop onions, cube sweet potatoes and measure out all other ingredients.

  • 2.

    Preheat oven to 170 degrees.

  • 3.

    Boil the sweet potatoes in hot water until soft enough to mash - mash with a fork and set aside to use later.

  • 4.

    Dry roast the raw buckwheat for a few minutes and keep tossing as they are toasting. Be careful not to burn during toasting.

  • 5.

    Once toasted, add the water and salt and bring to the boil, once boiling reduce heat and continue to cook for around 10-15 minutes until the grains are soft. Drain and set aside for later.

  • 6.

    Saute finely chopped onion in a small amount of extra virgin olive oil until softened.

  • 7.

    Add the grated carrot in with the onion and continue to saute for a few minutes.

  • 8.

    Add spinach and stir in enough to wilt.

  • 9.

    Once everything is prepared it is time to make your burgers!

  • 10.

    In a large bowl, add the cooked buckwheat, mashed sweet potato, cooked carrots, onions and spinach, tahini, and tamari (or soy sauce) and form into burgers. This should make around 4-6 depending on the size of your burgers!

  • 11.

    Line a baking tray with parchment paper to prevent the burgers from sticking during cooking

  • 12.

    Place each of your burgers on the tray and bake for around 45 minutes depending on size. Turn half way through cooking until browned on both sides.

  • 13.

    If you are using vegan cheese, make sure you top the burgers with the cheese and place back in the oven for a further 5 minutes to achieve a delicious melted texture!

  • 14.

    Serve with smashed avocado, tomato relish, fresh salad and a burger bun to finish it off! Accompany with sweet potato fries for the perfect weekend treat and enjoy!
