Sweet potato, lentil curry burgers



When I first started being vegan I thought my diet was about taking foods away… I couldn’t have been more wrong. I think that’s why a lot of people who are interested in veganism don’t make the switch… Because they believe they will starve “I’d die if I didn’t eat meat…” really? You’d die..? *buzzzz* wrong! Well no… You won’t die! In fact you’ll bloody thrive! Best part about a vegan, whole foods lifestyle is that your body will love you!

I thought I’d tackle the age old question ‘but where do you get your protein?’ oh how about 40g from my lentils yo!

This recipe is so bloody easy and ridiculously tasty… You can change so many things to make it personalised to you! I tried changing the curry paste for taco spice and I got Mexican burgers! You want to impress your friends or family with an amazing meal that took less time to make than the half time break in the footy! This is for you! Best part is you can feed an army!

Prep time: 10 mins  Cook time: 15 mins


  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato (cold)
  • 400g can of lentils drained

  • 1 cup of oats, ground
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Add onion and garlic with some water in a pan, heat until translucent. In a separate bowl mix lentils, mashed potatoes, paste and oats together. Add the onion and garlic to the bowl and use hands to mix well. Form the mixture into egg rings on a heated oiled pan. Cook 5 mins on each side (or until desired). Toast Turkish bread, add the cooked burger with salads. Enjoy…

What the hell am I doing this for?

To anyone and everyone who stumbles across this blog. I write to you frustrated… Being Australian, male and vegan is seen as being less of a man… Throw cooking in the mix and you’re a bona-fide pansy! Well I want to reach out to everyone who has made the switch from eating less animal products/no animal products! You’re stronger and more in tune with the world than most! 


In this blog I want to help the lazy, the ‘can’t – be – fucked’, the busy mother of 3, who still want a nutritious vegan meal that gives them all the protein, fatty acids, iron, calcium and flavour they need to not only grow… But to prosper! 


Let’s give these meals a go! They are bloody easy! Quick and delicious…
