I went to my friend’s house for a work date today; I always find myself more productive when surrounded by others working, too. We were craving something hearty and healthy, and since the past few days have felt like we are living in a polar vortex, the thought of going out to grab a bite was not the least bit appealing. Instead, we scoured her kitchen for odds and ends and decided we would made sweet potato salmon burgers on a bed of greens. I was skeptical at first because typically, I hate the fishiness of canned salmon. But to my surprise, these were anything but; they were perfectly savoury and bold in flavour.

What i  about this recipe:

  • Gluten free
  • Dairy free
  • Made of whole foods
  • Easy to make
  • Bold flavours
  • Not fishy (at all)

We paired the burgers with a simple kale salad, freshly chopped cucumber, kimchi, leftover roasted cauliflower that we re-heated in the oven to bring back the crispy edges, and a homemade salad dressing. If you make these burgers let me know what you pair them with!
