    4. Add grated sweet potato, onion, garlic, parsley, Tamari and quinoa and mix well.
    5. Mix in egg OR chia paste, flour, baking powder and sea salt.
    6. On a parchment-lined baking sheet, form into burger sized patties.
    7. Bake for 15 minutes, remove from oven and turn over, return to oven and cook for 10 minutes more OR until they are firm to the touch.


    Tamari is a alternative to soy sauce. Most brands are Gluten Free which is not the case for Soy Sauce.

    Chia seed paste is a wonderful alternative for some recipes if you don’t want to use eggs... so for this recipe if you wanted it to be VEGAN, chia paste would be perfect. Simply combine 1 Tbsp ground chia seeds with 1 cup of water. Mix well and allow to set for 3-5 minutes.
