Pesto Vegan Sliders & Cheese-less Cheesy Fries

This was a fun one because it was kind of an experiment of cleaning out the fridge- blending everything together, and making a patty!

They definitely didn’t come out perfectly, but they were still pretty dang tasty- which is why I wanted to share them here. 


Burger Toppings:
This is totally up to you, but this is what I used:
Vegan Pesto recipe
Hummus recipe
Spice Up Your Life recipe

Cheese-less Cheese Fries:
Sweet potato
Olive oil
Sea salt
Nutritional yeast
Follow Spice Up Your life Sauce recipe

Follow the Juice Pulp Cracker recipe

Black beans
Sweet Potato
Flax seed meal
Hemp seeds
White onion
YourSuperFoods Skinny Protein blend
YourSuperFoods Super Green blend

Follow Vegan Pesto recipe


This made about 15 small, thin patties. As always, these are estimated amounts.
I suck at measuring, what can I say?

If you don’t already have Juice Pulp Crackers made, these can take up to 2 hours. Check out the recipe for those here

1. Cut sweet potatoes into strips, and roast in oven at 200 degrees Celsius. Potatoes for patties should be spiced with salt and smoked paprika. Follow recipe below for fries. This can take about 40 minutes. I already had left over roasted potatoes, so I used leftovers for the patties, and fresh ones for the fries. Add about 1 C of roasted, soft sweet potatoes to blender/food processor.
2. On stove, fry up 1/4 of white onion (or more if you like stronger onion flavor) and 2 large cloves of garlic with a bit of olive oil. Once brown, bring to simmer to keep warm. 
3. Grate about 3/4 large carrot with cheese grater. Add grated carrots and  1 1/2 C of spinach to blender.
4. Add 1 can of black beans (or equivalent amount of black beans not canned) to bender.
5. Include about 1/4 C of flax seed meal (this will help bind the mixture) to blender. 
6. Add hemp seeds to your liking, and 1 heaping tablespoon of YouSuperFoods Skinny Protien and Super Green blends. 
7. Add warm onions and garlic to blender. 
8. Include a 2 tablespoons of Vegan Pesto to blender. 
9. Blend until sticky. If it’s not sticky enough, then add more flax seed meal. 
10. I made small patties to ensure they cooked all the way through. Scoop with tablespoon onto fry pan with only a small amount of olive oil. Cook to your liking. 

Cheese-less Fries:
1. As mentioned above, cut sweet potatoes into strips and roast in oven with olive oil. Spice with salt and nutritional yeast. The nutritional yeast gives the fries a cheesy flavor, so add to your liking. 
2. Roast can take around 40 minutes. Check after 30. 
3. Dip with Spice Up Your Life Sauce

Putting Burger Together:
As mentioned above, this is totally up to you in terms of what you want to top your’s with. I did a few different flavors that I’ll list below. 

1. Spread Juice Pulp Cracker with dip of your choice. On separate crackers, I used the recipes for HummusVegan Pesto and Spice Up Your Life
2. Add patty on top of cracker and spread. Option to add another, or the same, kind of spread again onto patty. 
3. On patty I added tomato, avocado, spinach and sprouts. On another one, I used sauerkraut. 
4. Other great options here are pickles, vegan cheese, and anything else you like to deck your burger out with!
