Fry’s Chicken-Style Burger

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.
