I know what you’re thinking and yes, that bun is an avocado. I just topped it with sesame seeds for added “burger” effect. They are also packed with a ton of flavor, so don’t let a meatless recipe steer you away. If you ever have vegetarians or gluten-intolerant folks, what a great option to make sure they feel included at a celebration! Even the meat lovers will like this one.
These sweet potato sliders are made from scratch and are perfect for serving at a party or even freezing and saving for later. Now, don’t be fooled by the word “sliders.” These babies will keep you full for a long time. I couldn’t even finish a whole one!
I usually serve these patties on toasted bread with various toppings but to mix things up, I decided to forgo the bun and use the always delicious Avocados From Mexico as a replacement. You probably can’t eat them with your hands this way; a fork and knife are probably best. If you do want to serve them as a packable sandwich, just spread the aioli and Avocados From Mexico on two pieces of toast and add the patty, arugula, and grilled onions.
Anyway, these ‘sliders’ are inspired by the recent trend I’ve been noticing of using a whole avocado as a bun. I saw the trend from a restaurant in Los Angeles (of course) and just knew it was something I wanted to try. Removing the bread in this recipe and replacing it with the avocado not only eliminates a little extra grain from my diet, but the avocado instantly adds a little extra to an otherwise simple recipe. Honestly, you could replace the bun with Avocados From Mexico on any summer sandwich for the perfect twist! This delicious recipe in particular has a ton of nutrients from the sweet potatoes, chickpeas, and onions in the patty to the arugula and avocado as toppings. Seriously, what could be better?
