The Ultimate Vegan Sweet Potato Burgers Recipe

These are FLIPPIN' crazy. By crazy, I mean cray cray, delicious, tasty, awesome, wholesome, filling, satisfying, impressive and addictive. This is such an easy recipe to make and freeze for future use. I am so into easy veggie burger recipes as you can use them on burgers, sandwiches or just as is with a side salad. Try them. Do it. You'll love them... and us for giving it to you. See the monkey at the bottom of this post... this is how you will feel when you try them.

makes 6 to 8

1 large sweet potato, sliced into thick circles

1 cup plant milk
1/2 cup flour
salt and pepper

4 slices bread
1 garlic clove
salt and pepper
drizzle of oil

  1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the sliced sweet potato in a single layer on the baking tray and spray with oil if desired.
  3. Bake for 20 minutes or so until softened and can be prodded with a fork.
  4. In the meantime, mix all 'batter' ingredients in a bowl. Set aside.
  5. In a processor, process all 'crumb' ingredients until 'crumby' haha. Set aside.
  6. Heat a frypan on medium to high heat and drizzle with oil.
  7. Dip each sweet potato circle in batter and the crumb and fry until browned on each side.
  8. Repeat with all circles.
  9. Serve immediately or refrigerate until needed. Enjoy!

  • Choose long thick sweet potatoes with a similar diameter to your bread rolls.

The nutritional information above are guidelines. The sweet potato burgers are very high in vitamin C, iron and vitamin B6.

^ How you will feel when you first taste these bad boys.

Vegan Quinoa Porridge Recipe

I am always on the lookout for more creative healthy breakfast ideas and this is perfect. It is healthy, easy, delicious and you can make it the night before! You can't get much better than this. Plus, it is amazingly tasty. It kinda reminds me of cocoa pops as it has that same delicious chocolatey taste. I was such a sucker for cocoa pops when I was younger... I swear I could eat a whole box to myself. I love this recipe as it gives you the chocolatey hit in the morning without the naughtiness. I hope you love it... enjoy!!

Serves 2

1/2 cup white quinoa
1 cup plant milk
2 tablespoons cacao or cocoa
3 tablespoons chia seeds
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  1. Prepare quinoa according to package instructions and drain.
  2. Add all ingredients to a bowl and stir until combined.
  3. Divide between two bowls or jars and refrigerate until hungry.
  4. Enjoy!

The China Study Summarised - Cheat Sheet

You don't have to be vegan or health-conscious to have heard of The China Study. A huge book filled with facts, figures and smart stuff analysed by T. Collin Campbell, PHD, and his son Thomas M. Campbell II, MD . It is "The most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted" with 20 years of data studied and analysed resulting in outstanding conclusions and eye-opening facts. It finally shows accurate and significantly links nutrition to cancer rates, obesity, heart disease and diabetes. It is a great go-to for every vegan who needs to prove why they live the way they do! This is not a book about the latest diet. It is a groundbreaking link between nutrition and disease resulting in the complete support for the plant-based whole food lifestyle.

Why it is accurate:
  • Largest epidemiological study in history.
  • Tested on humans
  • 20 year study
  • 650,000+ researchers
  • In over 65 countries
  • On over 880,000,000 people
  • 367 variables
  • 8000+ significant associations linking health and disease

We highly recommend you read it. Not only do we have kindness, morality and animal welfare on our side, but we also have years of studies and science to back us up!

Busy-beans, educate your brain below:

  1. The findings are solid, tested on humans and statistically significant. 
  2. You don't need as much protein as you would think.
  3. Those who consumed less animal protein, had less cancer cells.
  4. Protein consumption turns cancer levels on and off.
  5. Your plate is your medicine. Eat well to improve and fix your heath. 
  6. Casein, the milk protein, causes cancer.
  7. You can consume as much plant protein as you want without encouraging cancer growth.
  8. Animal protein promotes cancer growth.
  9. What we eat affects the way our bodies interact with foreign substances. How you eat can make carcinogens more or less dangerous. 
  10. We should be consuming more whole foods.
  11. Avoid processed foods.
  12. Eat high fiber foods.
  13. Eat a variety of fresh produce colours. Your plate should be a rainbow!
  14. Any food containing cholesterol is unhealthy. 
  15. Recommends a B12 supplement.

Now go forth and fill your mouth with the freshest fruits and veggies.
