  • Im a big believer that food can be your medicine
    5 days ago by brownpapernutrition I’m a big believer that food can be your medicine and that foods such as these are vital to support your health at this time. Those foods rich in Vitamin C, zinc, beta glucans, Vitamin D and other immune boosting nutrients. However, sometimes it can be tricky to pack it all in, which is why I have teamed up with  @melrosehealth  to talk about what we can do to boost our nutrient intake in the body and have our immune system firing for the cooler months ahead of us. Incorporating a powdered Vitamin C with all of the above nutrients
  • Think its time we crank Moroccan flavours a bit more
    3 days ago by brownpapernutrition Think it's time we crank Moroccan flavours a bit more folks - it's leading into that time of year for yummy warming spices and the combos are heavenly - turmeric, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, cori, chilli, bit of clove. I tend to buy a premade spice mix to use but you could make it up yourself if you have them all on hand, just ready made obviously makes whipping together a yummy tray bake like this bad boy a little faster! If you're new to eating more  #plantbased  then spices are going to be your best mate, go buy a few

Sweet potato burger with cumin spiced onion rings

Did you know these super cool ONION NUTRITION FACTS:

  • onions contain over 25 phytonutrient compounds including anthocyanins, sulfoxides and quercetin. It’s these phytonutrients that act as powerful antioxidants in our body to combat the effects of stress (hi!) and free radical damage and reduce our risk of chronic disease
  • red / spanish onions contain anthocyanins which make them the glorious purple colour (you find anthocyanins in other fruits and vegetables of similar colour too!) and can reduce inflammation, support cardiovascular health and improve blood glucose levels
  • onions are some of the very few plant foods that contain sulfoxides, which have shown anti-cancerous, anti-atherogenic, antioxidant and antihypertensive properties

It is ridiculously easy to get onions into your food each day and I encourage if you can, to do so, to reap these wonderful benefits, and if you’d like to kick off with a delicious recipe then definitely jump onto my burger recipe below – ENJOY!


Serves 4
Dairy Free : Vegetarian


2 cups cooked baked sweet potato pieces (about 800g raw) 1 cup (120g) breadcrumbs
1 free range egg
1/2 (60g) brown onion, peeled and roughly chopped

2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground paprika
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

1 cup (200g) cooked black beans

Cumin spiced onion rings:

2 (300g) brown onions, peeled and sliced into 1cm thick rings

2 free range eggs
1 1/2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 1/2 cups almond meal

Curry burger sauce:

1/2 cup coconut yoghurt
1/2 teaspoons ground turmeric

2 teaspoons curry powder


1/4 (150g) small red cabbage, finely sliced 2 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice

4 burger buns of choice or 12 ice berg lettuce leaves to serve sea salt and black pepper

To make the burgers:

Heat oven to 200C and line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Place all ingredients except the black beans in a food processor and blitz to combine. If you don’t have a food processor, simply finely chop the onion and then use a potato masher to mash all the ingredients together. Once these ingredients are combined stir black beans through. Shape firmly into 4 burger patties, place on tray and then bake in the oven for 10 minutes. Whilst burgers are baking make the onion rings.

To make the cumin spiced onion rings:

Whisk the eggs in one bowl and mix together the cumin and almond meal in a separate bowl. Line a large baking tray with greaseproof paper. Dip the onion ring in the egg then into the almond meal to coat. Place on tray and repeat with all rings. Place in the oven to bake for 10 minutes (half way through the burgers cooking). Whilst the burgers and onion rings cook, make the sauce and slaw.

To make the curry burger sauce:

Combine all ingredients in bowl, whisk together and set aside ready to dollop on the burger.

To make the slaw:

Toss together red cabbage, coriander, extra virgin olive oil, lemon juice and season with sea salt and black pepper. Toss and set aside ready to build the burger.

To build your burger:

Go for it! Start with the slaw at the base of your bun or lettuce leaves, followed by the sweet potato burger, curry burger sauce, cumin spiced onion rings and bit of coriander if you like to finish. Pop the burger bun top or more lettuce leaves on top and enjoy!
