2 cloves garlic, crushed
1” piece fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
1 to 1 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
3 large yellow potatoes, such as Yukon Gold, peeled boiled and drained
1 carrot, peeled, finely chopped, boiled and drained
1/4 cup frozen peas, thawed and drained
2 to 3 tablespoons bread crumbs
1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves, finely chopped (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste

For the turmeric yogurt:
1/2 cup unsweetened plant-based yogurt
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon fresh mint leaves, finely chopped
1 teaspoon fresh cilantro leave, finely chopped
1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons sugar

To serve:
6 Little Northern Bakehouse hamburger buns

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Make the patties. In a large pan, sauté the onion and pepper in oil until softened, approximately 5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic, ginger and spices and continue cooking 2 minutes. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, roughly mash the cooled potatoes. Add carrots and onion mixture and continue mashing, leaving a bit of texture. Add the peas, bread crumbs, cilantro, salt and pepper and gently toss to combine.
  5. Divide the mixture into 6 equal balls and form into patties.
  6. Place them on a parchment covered cookie sheet and bake until the bottom side is golden brown, approximately 20 minutes.
  7. Gently flip and continue cooking until the second side is golden brown, an additional 15 minutes.
  8. Make the turmeric yogurt sauce. Combine all the ingredients in a small bowl and set aside.
  9. To serve, oil the buns and place them in the oven until warmed through, approximately 5 minutes.
  10. Place patties on buns, top with vegetables and yogurt sauce. Serve immediately.
