    1 medium sized sweet potato, peeled and chopped into quarters
    ¼ cup Spekko Saman Brown Rice
    1 onion, diced
    2 spring onions, diced
    Handful of fresh mixed herbs
    1 tsp turmeric powder
    1 tsp cumin powder
    1 tsp paprika powder
    Salt and pepper to taste
    1 tbsp olive oil, for frying

    Avocado burger bun:
    2 avocados
    Butter lettuce
    Red onion rings
    Tomato, sliced thinly
    Cheddar cheese, sliced
    Tomato relish


    Sweet potato rice patties:

    1. Cook the rice according to the pack instructions.
    2. Boil the chopped sweet potato on high for 15 – 20 minutes or until soft and tender.
    3. Once cooked, drain and mash the potatoes and then let them cool for 10 minutes.
    4. Add the cooked rice to the mashed potatoes and mix until well combined.
    5. Fold through chopped onion, peppers and herbs until well combined.
    6. Add the turmeric, cumin, paprika, salt and pepper, mix well.
    7. Heat 1 tbsp of olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
    8. Using your hands, shape mixture into just a bit bigger than golf ball size. Flatten slightly with hands. (You should be aiming to fit the burger into an avo).
    9. Place patties into the pan and fry for 1 – 2 minutes, flip over and continue to cook until golden and crispy.


    1. Slice the avocados in half, length-wise. Remove the seed. Peel away the skin from the avocado halves.
    2. Place a lettuce leaf onto each of the bottom avo halves, top with a slice of tomato, a sweet potato rice patty, a slice of cheese and relish. Place the second avocado half over the top.
    3. Sprinkle sesame over the top of each avocado. Gently press the seeds into the surface of the avocado flesh so that they remain in place. Serve and ENJOY!
