Vadouvan is a French spin on masala, a wide-ranging Indian blend of herbs and spices. Like masala, it contains curry, garlic and onion powders, but the French added ingredients like dried shallot to the mix. We’re dusting sweet potato rounds and whole chickpeas with vadouvan and then roasting them as a side for chickpea burgers, seasoned with the same blend. The bright, aromatic flavors of vadouvan permeate the whole dish.

Spiced Chickpea Burgers with Vadouvan Sweet Potatoes & Lemon Yogurt Sauce ingredients
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Halve the buns. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Transfer ⅔ of the chickpeas to a large bowl and smash with a fork; leave the remaining chickpeas whole. Peel and mince the garlic; using the flat side of your knife, smash until it resembles a paste. Quarter and deseed the lemon. Thinly slice the cucumber. Cut the sweet potatoes into ½-inch-thick rounds. Peel and small dice the onion. In a medium bowl, combine the yogurt, the juice of 2 lemon wedges and ¼ of the garlic paste; drizzle with olive oil and stir to thoroughly combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Place the sweet potatoes and whole chickpeas on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and ⅓ of the vadouvan curry powder; toss to thoroughly coat. Arrange in a single, even layer and roast 18 to 20 minutes, or until the sweet potatoes are slightly browned and tender and the chickpeas are slightly crispy. Transfer to a serving dish.
