White Quinoa Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries

Why have your fries on the side when you can pile them high on top of your white quinoa burgers? This over-the-top approach ensures that every bite is a perfect one.

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. Remove onions to a bowl, and add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to skillet. Cook white quinoa burgers, flipping once, until browned on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.

5. Place burgers on buns, top with onions and fries, and drizzle with herb dressing.
