Flax Burgers & Sweet Potato Fries

These have great flavor! They are not as firm as the Black Bean Burger or Beet Burger, but you should definitely give them a try. also for great leftover on salad for lunch!


1 large avocado (sliced)

4 leaves lettuce

1 clove garlic (peeled & pressed)

1 regular green onion (chopped)

¼ regular red onion (sliced)

¼ cup parsley (chopped)

1 large sweet potato (sliced thinly like fries)

1 large tomato (sliced)

4 buns Ezekiel English Muffins

3 Tbsp flax seed (ground)

½ 15 oz can black beans (drained and rinsed)

½ 15 oz can garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)

½ 14 oz can artichoke hearts (drained and chopped)

½ cup millet

2 Tbsp tahini

Black pepper (to taste)

Cajun spice (to taste)

Coconut spray oil

Coconut oil


  1. Gather the ingredients and pre-heat oven to 400.
  2. Cook millet: in a pot add 1 ½ cups of water and ½ cup of millet. Bring to boil and simmer (about 20 min or so).
  3. Cut your sweet potatoes into thin fry like wedges.
  4. Lay out potatoes and lightly spray with coconut oil and season to taste with Cajun seasoning and black pepper. Place in oven and cook until done (about 20 – 30 min).
  5. Prepare burger ingredients: chop parsley, artichoke hearts, green onion, peel garlic, measure out flax seed & tahini, drain and rinse black & garbanzo beans, and black pepper to taste.
  6. Add all burger ingredients to a food processor and pulse until roughly mixed. You may have to scrape down the sides a few times.
  7. Put the processed burger ingredients into a large mixing bowl and add the cooked millet.
  8. Mix well mashing all ingredients together. At this point if it seems a little moist, feel free to add some whole wheat bread crumbs or eggs (these will help firm up your burger).
  9. Press burgers into 5 patties.
  10. Over medium heat add a little coconut oil (or spray) to our pan and cook the patties until they are golden brown on each side (usually about 5 min per side).
  11. Prepare your toppings (slice avocado, onion, tomato, lettuce and English muffins) and serve.
