Sweet Potato Waffle Burgers


So, I know this sounds ridiculous.. but I used my waffle maker to make these delicious burgers. I mean, it heats up quick, easy clean up, cooks faster then an oven, why not?


Seriously though, for my $10 Owens Waffle maker, it was a good investment. You can make cake with this thing if you wanted.



Anyways, have you heard from Kamut? It’s a very earthy, firm grain. It gave the veggie burger a more “meaty” texture. I followed the directions on the package, soaked over night, 1 cup Kamut 3 cups water to boil. I didn’t absorb all of the water but I just drained & it came out fine (I think, never have had before)


I just mixed it with some black beans, microwaved sweet potato, instant oats, spices and bam! Roll into a ball and into the waffle maker for 5-9 minutes.


& There you have it, a hot-steamy, delicious, homemade veggie burger!


  • 1 cup (46g) Kamut
  • 1 cup (133 g), Sweet Potato
  • 1 Cup, Black Beans
  • 1 cup, Oatmeal
  • 1 Tsp., Chipotle Chile Pepper Powder
  • 1 tsp, Cumin
  • 1 tsp, Garlic, raw
  • 1 tsp, Smoked Paprika
  • 1 tbsp, Chia Seed
  1. Soak the Kamut over night for best results. Mix 1 Cup kamut with 3 cups water & bring to a boil. Then put heat on low & cover for about 30-40 minutes. If you don’t soak over night I believe it needs to cook 50-60 minutes.
  2. Pierce holes in sweet potato with a fork. Damp a paper towel & loosely over sweet potato. Put in microwave for 3 minutes. Flip and do another 2-3 minutes. (I think this varies also on how big potato is)
  3. Mash potato in bowl, then add beans and mash away. Add everything else and mash/stir to combine. If you’re making with a waffle maker or George Foreman, roll into a ball of you desire & place in cooker. I let mine go for 5-9 minutes.

*If you make in a oven I believe 450 degrees, make flat patties and 12-15 minutes. I would check on it just to be sure I haven’t tried this way yet.

*I was able to make 5 decent size burgers with this. I also used in a salad with corn, salsa, avocado & spinach & it was delicious!
