Honey Mustard Sauce:

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1/2 cup whole-grain Dijon mustard

1/4 cup honey 

"Sweet-Pea" Burgers:

2 large sweet potatoes, holes poked with a fork

Two 15-ounce cans garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed 

1 egg, beaten 

1 teaspoon chili powder 

1/4 cup all-purpose flour 

2 cups fine breadcrumbs 

1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan

Salt and pepper 

2 tablespoons olive oil 

2 tablespoons butter 

To Serve:

6 onion rolls, toasted

Bibb lettuce leaves 

Sliced avocado 


  1. For the honey mustard sauce: In a bowl, combine the mayo, mustard and honey; mix well.
  2. For the "sweet pea" burgers: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.; line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Set the sweet potatoes on the baking sheet and bake until soft, 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool.
  4. When cool enough to handle, halve the sweet potatoes, then scoop the flesh into a medium bowl and mash with the garbanzo beans. Add the egg, chili powder, flour, breadcrumbs, Parmesan and some salt and pepper. Mix until fully combined. Form the mixture in 6 patties.
  5. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the oil and butter, swirling them together. Add the patties to the skillet and cook until brown and crispy, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain.
  6. Serve the burgers on toasted onion rolls spread with honey mustard sauce. Top with lettuce and avocado.
