Recipe of the month

People living with diabetes can enjoy the same healthy meals as the whole family.  Read our healthy cooking fact sheet for ideas on how to make small changes to your favourite recipes.
Some great ways to make recipes healthier are to:
  • add extra fibre
  • add extra fruit & vegetables
  • reduce the amount of sugar, salt, or saturated fat

Sweet potato veggie burgers  

Serves: 6

1 can (440g) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup frozen green peas, defrosted
1/2 cup sweet potato, grated
1/2 medium red onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, crushed
3 tbsp wholemeal plain flour
1 tbsp sweet chilli sauce
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander seeds
1 tbsp canola oil 

  1. Mash the chickpeas and peas together in a large bowl with a fork.
  2. With your hands, squeeze as much moister from the grated vegetables before adding to the bowl.
  3. Add all the other ingredients (except the oil) and mix well.
  4. Take a big spoonful of the mixture and roll into a ball with your hands. Flatten the ball and place on a plate. Repeat with the rest of the mixture.
  5. Heat half the oil in a large non-stick fry pan. Add enough patties being careful not to overcrowd and allow room to turn each pattie.
  6. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until golden brown, then flip over and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Place on paper towel while you cook the rest of the patties.
Serve alongside a salad and enjoy!
