Sweet Potato Adzuki Bean Burger Gameday Sliders with Spinach, Cucumber, Dill Aioli. Vegan Recipe

Today I am guest posting At Jackie’s blog at Vegan Yack Attack. If you havent been there before, now is the time. All the gorgeous everyday food, the smoothies, raw options, the drinks, yes drinks and product reviews too. Thank you for the opportunity to guest post Jackie!

These Sliders are easy to put together, healthy(baked), and flexible to taste. Another great snack option for Gameday. If you missed the other pretty Slider, you can catch yesterday’s Roasted Butternut, Caramelized Onion, Sriracha Mayo Slider post here.

Some days I plan out my day to make something and cook that up, pictured and written up for a post. Some other days, I just go to the kitchen, look around and start working. This was one of those days. I had a few Sweet Potatoes from the weekly farm delivery, so I boiled them. Then started looking for some beans. I did not have any soaking, so looked at my canned bean section, which happens to be on the topmost shelf in the kitchen. This is because the kitchen storage keeps getting full and some days some priorities(beans should be more accessible) are missed in the reorganization. I tried to get the Cannellini beans can from the shelf and it toppled over behind all the other cans. Making a mental note to get hubbs to shift all the bean cans to a lower level, I reached out a grabbed another can. Ha! Adzuki beans.

Then I went to our balcony herb garden and saw some very green and flourishing Dill. Cut some of that, some remnants of Spinach and headed to choose between cucumber, red bell pepper, onions and tomatoes for an added crunch. Dill and cucumber always work so well together. So there they went. I sliced up some of my day old Multigrain rolls. Went about clicking some pictures. I toasted the ones that would be served. The rolls in the pictures are not toasted. Both work fine. I like warm bread:) 

And so is the story of these cute Sliders. The sweet potato patties are quite addictive by themselves. These mini burgers are small but still pack a good punch in filling you up with just a few. I say make some for Gameday!

Boil, peel and mash 1 large Sweet Potato or Yam.
Add the rest of the ingredients, mix, mash, mix. Taste and adjust salt if needed.

Make patties and coat in bread crumbs. The mixture will be sticky. Use flour or oil on hands to work. Once baked the patties are quite sturdy.

Bake for 25-30 minutes at 375 degrees F, until golden and dry on the outside.

Assemble and serve.

    I nearly bought dry adzuki beans at the store the other day but chickened out. Now I’m kicking myself. Girl when you start going with a theme, it gets a little INSANE. Love these

    Richa, you are too good to be true! I adore adzuki beans but almost never think to make them into savory dishes, and have a ton of panko bread crumbs that I was just wondering how I should use up. Perfect, perfect!
