Serves: 4

Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet potatoes
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ¼ cup tahini
  • ¼ cup chia seeds
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
  • 1 medium avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 1 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 3 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • Juice of 1 medium lime
  • 2 Tbsp. cilantro leaves

Directions

  • Microwave sweet potatoes until tender, about 10 minutes. Cool and peel, then place sweet potatoes in a large bowl. Mash with a fork, then stir in garlic, tahini, chia seeds, salt, pepper, and melted coconut oil.
  • Cover and allow to sit at room temperature for 20 minutes (this will allow the chia seeds to thicken the mixture).
  • Form mixture into four patties (use a large ice cream scoop for best results).
  • Drizzle half of the olive oil in a large skillet heated over medium-high heat. Place patties in hot oil, cover, and cook until golden brown, about 8 minutes. Flip with a metal spatula and cook second sides about 7 minutes until golden brown.
  • Transfer to a plate, then top with avocado and tomatoes. Drizzle with olive oil and lime juice. Garnish with cilantro.
