sweet potato burger

This is not my recipe. but I made them. and they are good! There are a lot of really beneficial ingredients in this recipe and although there may be a ton of steps I promise it's worth it.  Another added benefit is they freeze well, so enjoy all that hard work over and over again.

the edible perspective

{sweet potato black bean burger}
15oz black beans, drained and rinsed
3 cup cubed sweet tater, cooked and skin on
1/2 cup corn
2/3 cup finely chopped onion
2 large garlic cloves, finely minced
1/2 cup cooked quinoa
6 tablespoons rolled oats, partially ground
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
1/2 teaspoon salt
black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
1/4 teaspoon coriander
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne 
1 tablespoon olive oil

1. preheat oven to 375 once you finish cooking the quinoa and potato
2. mash half of the beans in a bowl until paste-like
3. add in the rest of the beans and give a very light stir/mash to combine
4. in a large bowl, mash the sweet tater.  Each cube should be mashed, but you don’t want it creamy
5. stir in the salt, pepper, oregano, coriander, chili powder, cayenne and olive oil, until combined
6. mix in the onion, garlic, corn, black beans, quinoa, sunflower seeds, and ground oats, until just combined
7. form into balls, between your hands and flatten into 1/2”-3/4” thick patties.  This should make 8 patties
8. Place on a pan lined with parchment paper [or lightly greased pan] and bake on each side for 15min, flipping once, half-way through

To make the ground oats – Pulse your blender on and off, until you have the consistency about half way to flour. Instead of ground oats, feel free to sub – millet flour, oat flour, quinoa flour, whole wheat flour, etc.
