Beef Burger with Sweet Potato and Herby Tomato Sauce

Who doesn’t love a burger? I have recreated the classic burger feel in this much healthier meal. I used Muscle Food Premium Lite Beef™ Burgers, which I am really impressed with and would definitely recommend! I cooked them for 6 minutes on each side under the grill. A mix of sweet potato can be used in this recipe; I used regular orange sweet potato and white sweet potato as I’m still on the hunt for purple sweet potatoes. I’m a fan of a bit of crunch and usually top my salads with The Food Doctor Savory Seed Blend, as this is so much more convenient than toasting seeds myself. Tomato sauce is an all round winner for burgers and so many different herbs can be added and swapped around here, I used dried oregano and chives, but you can also add parsley or fresh basil. If you use fresh basil, tear and add it just before serving to preserve the flavour.
