What to do with that leftover sweet potato? Just turn them into these easy sweet potato cakes. They are quick to make and great with salads or on as a patty on a soft bread with sauce. If opted to use a gluten free flour so those who are intolerant or allergic can enjoy it too.…
As someone who loves to use gluten free flours, gram (aka chickpea flour) has to be one of my favourites! It simply keeps finding its way into my dishes like my noodle wheel recipe and many more to come. Chickpea flour is very versatile you can use it in savoury and sweet dishes, it’s high in protein and you can even use it to make face masks, yup face masks. Do keep in mind that raw and undercooked chickpea flour tastes like the stuff nightmares are made of, absolutely horrifying. …
I’ve been on a mission of creating the perfect vegan burger for a while now. I thought I’d struck gold with my last burger recipe, but although they are really nice, this recipe takes the cake! There are a couple major problems when it comes to making vegan burgers, here are a couple of them:
- The mixture becomes to moist and the burger comes out to mushy.
- The mixture is to dry and the burger comes out like a weird savoury cookie.
- They actually could look like cookies. I’ve literally had someone ask me if I made cookies during some of my previous attempts.
- They fall apart.
And there are so much more!
Although my previous burger recipe was great, this one is perfection! And just in time for the summer/spring, I know what I’ll be having when my family and friends decide to turn on the barbecue. Even my non vegan family members loved this burger, I love showing people that being vegan doesn’t mean you have to give up you’re favourite junky foods. And can you even call a whole food burger like this junky!? Nope its basically a warm salad.
The burger pictured above was baked in the oven, which in the past left me with dry savoury cookies, but just a little coating of some good olive oil did the trick, and feel free to try it oil free as well! Although the baked burger was really nice and not dry at all, I do prefer the panfried one. Although I try to minimise my oil consumption wherever possible, with this burger its oh so worth it, and you don’t need a lot to lightly pan fry the patties.
When it comes to sauce you can use whatever you like, but for this specific burger I made my own sauce using:
- 2 tablespoons vegan mayo
- 1 tsp mustard
- 1 tsp gochujang
- a pinch of coconut sugar
The key component in this sauce definitely has to be the gochujang, which is a fermented Korean paste made from soy beans, glutinous rice, red chilli peppers and salt. At first I wasn’t a huge fan of this paste, but the past few weeks it has really grown on me, to the point I eat it with almost everything!
So next time your family and/or friends are having a barbecue, cook them up some of these burgers and show them how awesome vegan food can be and that its not a diet, but a lifestyle.
I’d love to know how you liked these and if you make them share a picture with me on instagram or leave a comment below!

Sometimes you just need to indulge yourself with some delicious chocolate cookies, right? The past week i’ve been working on a recipe for gluten free cookies using chickpea flour as a base. One thing you should take in account while making the cookie dough is that raw chickpea flour tastes horrible, so don’t taste the dough! These cookies are so good i can eat a whole batch in just one sitting, so make sure to make these to share with others, or you’ll find yourself, just like i, devouring a whole batch of cookies….
