Veggie burgers with sweet potatoes / Veganski burgerji



Last week I discovered a new running trail. I ran and instead of turning to the right, as usual, I went left. O Mary, a whole new world opened up! I know I'm being weird, but running can become boring if you always run on the same trail. You have to mix it up! Therefore, I constantly change my trail. The funny thing is that I live in this area for almost 7 years and I've never been there. It's crazy beautiful there .. Outdoor Fitness, bridges ... there is this one area where they recently cut down bunch of trees so the air there is full of that typical smell of sawdust. I love that scent! Right now I'm on the way to go running, even though my entire body hurts! After a long time I started doing crunches again and oh boy do I feel my one pack =)! I'm quite beat because of this. It's really obvious that a long time has passed since I did them the last time. But (!), I said to myself that I must be a good girl and workout, no matter what! ohh yeaah!

Along with exercise a change in the way of eating is also important. I'm not vegan or vegetarian, but I really like vegetables (I sound like Gwyneth Paltrow in the commercial for Spar =)), and so I will probably publish many recipes from now on that are full of vegetables and more high-quality nutrition. Like this  veggie burgers for example. Seriously, I'm not kidding, they really are good. I love sweet potatoes, it contains beta-carotene, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamins B , potassium ... and the taste is sooo good. Avocados .., do I even need to say more? A source of unsaturated fatty acids, vitamin C, B vitamins ... spinach also full of vitamin K and other vitamins and minerals .. cooked spinach contains more vitamins and minerals but hey..better this than nothing =).



Ingredients
400 g white beans
1 sweet potato
Onion
Spinach
Avocado
1/4 cup Wholemeal flour
Crumbs
Whole grain bun
Cayenne pepper
1 tsp of agave syrup



The process
1. Bake sweet potato (200°C 40 min). Peel, place in large mixing bowl.
2. Add  beans to mixing bowl. Mash beans and potato together.
3. Mash in cayenne pepper, agave syrup, flour and any additional seasoning. Your mixture will be quite soft and moist. But you should be able to form a patty. Add more flour or a scoop of breadcrumbs.
4. Heat oil in the pan.
5. Form a patty from mixture and coat in crumbs. Thick coating. Then drop the patty in the pan. Repeat until the pan is filled. Cook until browned on both sides. 
6. Transfer cooked patties to paper towel to soak oil. 
7. Serve on bun, add spinach, onion, avocado and add a few drops of olive oil to avocado.
Prejšnji teden sem odkrila novo tekaško pot. Tekla sem in namesto, da bi zavila desno, kot ponavadi, sem šla levo. O Marija, kot, da bi se cel drug svet odprl! Vem, da sem smešna, ampak tek lahko postane dolgočasen, če vedno tečeš po isti poti. Zato stalno menjam te poti. Najbolj smešno je to, da živim v temu območju že skoraj 7 let pa še nikoli nisem bila tam. Noro lepo je tam.. fitnes na prostem, mostički...na enem predelu so ravno pred kratkim očitno požagali kup dreves in je zato v zraku čutiti tisti značilni vonj žaganja. Obožujem ta vonj! Ravno sedaj se odpravljam na tek, čeprav me vse boli! Po dolgem času sem se spet lotila trebušnjakov (na fitnesu na prostem) in čisto sem crknjena zaradi tega. Pozna se mi, da jih nisem povohala že dolgooo, dolgo. Ampak (!) rekla sem si, da moram biti pridna in vztrajati, ne glede na vse! ohh yeaah! 
Skupaj s telovadbo gre tudi sprememba v načinu prehranjevanja. Nisem veganka ali vegetarijanka, imam pa zelo rada zelenjavo ( zvenim kot Gwyneth Paltrow v reklami za Špar =) ) in zato bom verjetno veliko takih receptov objavljala, ki so polni zelenjave in bolj kvalitetno hranilni. Super primer je tale vegi burger. Resno, ne zafrkavam se, res je hud. Sladki krompir obožujem, vsebuje betakaroten, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamine is skupine B,kalij... in okus je konkreten. Avokado..uff, a moram sploh kaj reči? Vir nenasičenih maščobnih kislin, vitamina K, B vitaminov... špinača prav tako polna vitamina K in drugih vitaminov ter mineralov..sicer jih več vsebuje kuhana, vendar hej, bolje to, kot pa nič =).

Z ljubeznijo, Neja

Sestavine
400 g belega fižola
1 sladki krompir
Čebula
Špinača
Avokado
32g polnozrnate moke
Drobtine
Polnozrnate bombete
Kajenski poper
1 žlica agavinega sirupa

Postopek
1. Specite sladki krompir (200°C 40 min. Olupite in položite v veliko skledo.
2. Dodajte fižol v skledo. Pretlačite fižol in krompir skupaj.
3. Dodajte kajenski poper, agavin sirup, moko in vse dodatne začimbe po želji. Mešanica bo precej mehka in vlažna. Vendar se bo vseeno dalo oblikovati polpet. Dodajte več moke ali drobtine, če vam ne gre.
4. Segrejte olje v ponvi.
5. Polpete povaljajte v drobtine. Debel premaz. Nato jih položite v ponev in pecite na obeh straneh.
6. Ko so polpeti spečeni jih prenesite na papirnato brisačo, da posrka olje. 
7. Postrezite v polnozrnati bombeti, dodajte špinačo, čebulo, avokado in dodajte nekaj kapljic olivnega olja na avokado

  5. Fin nadomestek pravega burgerja. Odlično.

    Nina, sladek krompir imajo sigurno v Eleclercu. Tam kjer so paradižniki.
