My recent order from Relay Foods left me with a bunch of sweet potatoes [I’m not complaining!] so I was searching for different ways to prepare them. I found tons of sweet potato burger recipes on Pinterest, including this one from The Lean Green Bean, which I thoroughly enjoyed last week.
This totally inspired me to figure out another burger recipe. I’ve also been trying to cut back on grocery costs so I loved being able to stretch all of my ingredients in burgers. Not to mention, they’re so versatile!
Chipotle Lime Sweet Potato Tofu Burgers
Makes 8 burgers
– 1 large sweet potato; steamed
– 1 12oz. container extra firm tofu; drained and pressed
– 1/2 cup quinoa; cooked
– 1/2 medium onion; chopped
– 2 stalks green onion; chopped
– 2 chipotles in adobo; chopped
– 2 cloves garlic; minced
– 1 lime; zested and juiced
– 2 tbsp coconut flour
– 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
– 1 tsp chili powder
– 1 tsp garlic powder
– 1/4 tsp cumin
– Salt & pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mash together until well combined. Form into 8 patties and place on a prepped baking sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes, flipping halfway through.
Enjoy on a bun with lettuce, tomato, & onion or over a bunch of roasted vegetables. Always top with avocado or guacamole.. it practically completes the burger!

What is your favorite burger?
yum! these look awesome!
Thank you! And thanks for being my inspiration for these 🙂
These look amazing – I’m so glad you linked up today. That chipotle flavor is one of my favorites, and so good against the sweet potato!
Thanks so much! I absolutely love chipotle and sweet potato too. Or, really anything with sweet potato 🙂
These sound really good! I have heard of sweet potato burgers and black bean burgers but sweet potato tofu is new.
Thank you! I love the different texture that the tofu gives it as compared to the beans.
Sweet potatoes AND tofu in burger form?? Yum! These look and sound SO delicious :).
Thank you! Let me know if you try them 🙂

I’ve now made this recipe twice and I have to say, they taste AMAZING but I can’t get them to hold together! The first time, I thought maybe it was because I prepped the burgers the night before so that all I’d have to do when I got home from work is bake them, but the second time I made everything fresh and baked them right away and still had trouble. Any ideas?
I’m wondering if they’re too dry or too moist? If too dry, try a larger sweet potato and if they’re too moist, add a little extra coconut flour.
I’ll have to experiment a little more — I can form them into patties but when I go to flip them, they crumble to pieces. I’ll start by trying a little extra sweet potato and see if it gets better or worse. Thanks for the suggestions! Like I said, I love the recipe, if I can just get it to cooperate 🙂
