  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions:

For the Sweet Potato Fries:

Preheat the oven to 425°.

Rinse the sweet potato slices in a colander under cold water. Strain the sweet potato slices and pour on top of a clean dish towel.  Dry the sweet potatoes as best as possible with the towel and then transfer to a large mixing bowl.

In the mixing bowl add the corn starch and mix with your hands until the corn starch is well combined with the sweet potatoes.  Add the oil, salt, and garlic and combine again until the oil and seasonings are completely covering each fry, and the corn starch is no longer showing.

Place fries on a large baking sheet (you may need to use 2), make sure there is space between each fry so that they are not overlapping or touching when they bake. Bake for 20 minutes, then flip the fries and place back into the oven. Continue baking until fries are deep golden and crispy. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

 

For the Caramelized Onions:

Heat the grapeseed oil and the onion slices over medium-high heat in a frying pan and add a pinch of salt. Let cook, stirring frequently, until brown bits begin to form on the pan. Add water, a tablespoon at a time and scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.  Continue this pattern of stirring, adding water, and scraping until the onions are soft and a deep gold color.  Remove from the heat and set aside.

 

For the Sandwich:

Spread half of the bread slices with 1 teaspoon of mustard, and the other half with 1 tablespoon of hummus. Place the avocado on the mustard side of the bread slices.  Place the Sunshine Burgers on the hummus side of the bread slices. Place the caramelized onions equally on top of each Sunshine Burger, and then top with equal amounts of sprouts. Place the avocado topped slices of bread on the Sunshine Burger topped slices.

Serve each sandwich on a plate with sweet potato fries and a pickle.
