Cooking Time: 45 minutes
2 large sweet potatoes, washed and cut into wedges
1 tsp olive oil
1½ tsp paprika
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp salt
½ cup brown rice
1 cup water
For the Hummus:
1 can of chickpeas (keep the water/brine from the can)
2 cloves garlic, crushed
2 tbsp almond milk
Juice of half a lemon
2 tbsp tahini
3-4 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp cumin
Sat and pepper, to taste
A handful of fresh coriander, for serving
1 cucumber, sliced, for serving
A handful of cherry tomatoes, halved, for serving
40g fresh rocket, for serving
1 avocado, sliced, for serving
Place the rice in a saucepan with 1 cup water. Prepare the rice according to the package instructions.
Toss the sweet potatoes with a bit of oil, paprika and salt and pepper.
Add the sweet potatoes wedges to the airfryer basket. Be careful not to overcrowd. Cook for 15 minutes at 200°C, or until golden brown, tossing halfway.
While the sweet potatoes are cooking, get started on the oil-free hummus. Add the chickpeas, garlic, almond milk, lemon, tahini, chilli powder, cumin and salt and pepper in a food processor. Add extra chickpea water to the mixture if required. Blend until smooth and creamy.
In the airfyer, cook the Chicken-Style Burgers for 8 minutes at 185°C *.
If you don't have an airfryer, preheat the oven to 180°C. Bake the potatoes in the oven for 30-35 minutes, until lightly browned. Toss halfway and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Place the frozen Chicken-Style Burger under a preheated hot grill for 10-12 minutes, turning once. Alternatively, cook in the oven at 180°C. Place on oven tray in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes, turning once.
Serve the Chicken-Style Burger, rice and hummus with chopped cucumber, tomatoes, rocket, avocado and fresh coriander.
*Reduce cooking time if the Chicken-Style Burgers have defrosted.
