Baked Sweet Potatoes:
Preheat oven to 400°F. Peel, wash, and slice your potatoes. In a bowl mix all the ingredients together: potatoes, olive oil, maple syrup, and pepper. Place a baking sheet on a pan and spread your potatoes evenly. Cook for 30-40 minutes and turn halfway through cooking time.
Peel & mash avocados in a medium serving bowl. Add lime zest, juice, and salt & pepper to taste. Mix well and set aside.
Take a medium-size bowl, and add the diced tomatoes, red onions, chili peppery, lime juice, and salt. Mix well and set aside.
Basil Tahini Spread:
Take a small bowl, and add the tahini, vegan Greek yogurt, water, olive oil, minced garlic, and basil. Mix well and add more water if the spread is too thick.
Heat a large pan over medium-high heat. Take Wholly Veggie’s Herby Garlic Green Patties and cook them in the toaster. In the meantime, add your burger buns to the pan. Toast, without moving, until both cut surfaces turn light golden brown. Flip and repeat. For serving, spread the basil tahini on the lower bun, add the pattie, avocado spread, tomato mix, baked sweet potatoes, and alfalfa, and add more basil tahini spread on the upper bun. Enjoy!
