Makes 3 servings
what you’ll need:
2 large sweet potatoes (about 1 ½ pounds), scrubbed and cut into ¼” thick strips
4 tablespoons preferred vegetable oil, divided
1 ½ teaspoons sea salt, divided
⅓ cup vegan sour cream
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoons minced fresh herbs (chives, dill, and/or cilantro)
1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
1 package Tofurky® White Quinoa Burgers
3 vegan hamburger buns, toasted
how to make:
1. Preheat oven to 450℉.
2. On a baking sheet, toss sweet potatoes with 2 tablespoons oil and 1 teaspoon salt. Roast, stirring occasionally, until tender and browned, about 20 minutes.
3. In a medium bowl, whisk together sour cream, vinegar, herbs, and ¼ teaspoon salt.
4. In a medium skillet, warm 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat. Sauté onions and ¼ teaspoon salt until soft and golden, about 6-8 minutes.
