Veggie Patty with Microgreens and Bell Peppers


  • 1 sweet potato sliced in half, then halved again lengthwise
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil for roasting
  • 1/2 cup quinoa cooked & cooled
  • 1/4 cup cannellini beans cooked & rinsed
  • 1/8 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup spinach
  • 1 small carrot
  • 1 small egg
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 11/2 tsp liquid aminos or tamari
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 green onion chopped
  • Garlic salt & pepper to taste
  • Topping:
  • 11/2 bell peppers seeds removed
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 handfuls of washed microgreens



  • Preheat oven to 400°. Toss the sweet potatoes in the olive oil & season with salt & pepper. Roast for 30 minutes until easily pierced with a fork.
  • Meanwhile, cook the quinoa. You may want to cook the whole package as directed on the box, then set the ½ cup aside for the patties.
  • Turn oven down to 375°.
  • Coarsely chop walnuts. Next, wilt the spinach with the salt & pepper, about a minute.
  • Grate the carrot with a microplane, grater, or food processor. You’ll want about ¼ cup for the patties.
  • Place the sweet potatoes into a food processor and pulse until smooth. Add in all remaining ingredients of the patties, except the cannellini beans. Pulse a few times until everything is mixed but not smooth. Add in the beans & pulse a few more times. The mixture should still have chunks of potatoes, be wet/sticky, but still easy to form patties. You can add more quinoa if it seems too wet to you.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet, then form the patties and place in the skillet. You’ll want enough room to cook the peppers in the same pan, following step 8. Cook 2-3 minutes on each side until cooked through and golden brown.


  • Slice the bell pepper so that you get three rings (one for each patty) and a bunch of spears. Place the rings in the skillet & crack the eggs inside them. Place the rest of the pepper slices into the pan & cook until the eggs and peppers are done until your liking.
  • Arrange the bell pepper slices on a plate in a nice pile. Place the veggie burger on top of them. Next, place the egg on top, then top with the microgreens & serve.
