Sweet Potato and Spinach Burgers VEGGIE BURGERS ANYONE?.

Here at Fab, we LOVE our recipes! We love trying new recipes and we especially love a recipe if it is suitable for children! Those of us who are required to cook meals for our au pair children, are always on the look out for a great new recipe. We tried these sweet potato and spinach burgers the other day and they were DELICIOUSLY SCRUMPTIOUS! See the recipe below:


  • Two sweet potatoes
  • One egg
  • Two cups of spinach
  • A handful of breadcrumbs
  • Fresh rosemary sprigs
  • One onion chopped finely
  • Coconut oil


Begin by steaming/boiling the sweet potato until it is soft. Once it is cooked, you can either scoop the flesh out the skin or leave the skin on to add texture. Place the spinach in a bowl or colander and pour boiling water over it until it shrinks. Rinse it with cold water and then squeeze the water out so that it is fairly dry. Chop the spinach up finely. Whisk an egg and mix the egg, sweet potato and spinach together. Chop up an onion and add onion and sprigs of fresh rosemary. Once all mixed together, use a spoon and your hand to separate the mixture into balls and roll in your hands. Heat a small amount of coconut oil in a frying pan and add the “meat balls” to the oil and gently fry/brown the balls. Once cooked, serve hot as a “meat ball” with salads or add to a bun and make a veggie burger!!

Such a delicious lunch/dinner treat or even enjoy as a snack! This will be sure to impress the kiddies. It is a great way to ensure fussy eaters get their share of healthy veggies, disguised as a burger, heehee!

Love, Fab Au Pairs.
