Sweet potato and millet burgers

Sweet Potato & Millet Burgers with Lime & Coriander Guacamole served with sauteed broccoli, beans & asparagus with toasted hemp seeds & tamari.

This is a delicious light plant based alkaline recipe for a Meat Free Monday or any other day of the week! Millet is a grain that is naturally gluten free and high in protein and magnesium with a mildly sweet, nutty flavour. You can also roll these burgers into falafels or add spices such as cumin, paprika and cayenne pepper for a spicy flavour.


  • 1.5 cups mashed sweet potatoes (about 2 medium sized)
  • 1/2 cup millet flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped spring onion
  • ¼ cup parsley
  • ½ cup coriander
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  1. Bake the sweet potato’s whole in the oven at 200c (170c fan based) for around 30-40 minutes until soft. Peel the skins and mash the potato and allow the mash to cool a little.
  2. Place the mashed sweet potato in a bowl and add the millet, spring onion, parsley, coriander, garlic and egg.
  3. Mix together well with clean hands. Add salt and pepper to taste, then form into 8 patties. I do this with a 1/4 cup measure which helps give the burgers their shape.
  4. Coat a pan with coconut oil (because you want to heat the pan till it’s hot). Place the patties in the pan when it’s hot then reduce the heat to medium.
  5. Cook until golden brown on each side and cooked through.
  6. Try a little lime squeezed on top to add flavour or add the guacamole recipe below.
  7. Serve with sauteed vegetables with added hemp seeds and a splash of tamari.
