Sweet Potato Black Bean Burger

  • Serving Size6


    • 1 T ground flaxseed meal + 3 T water (or 1 egg)
    • 1 c cooked mashed sweet potato (from 1 large or 2 smaller sweet potatoes)
    • ½ c cooked quinoa
    • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
    • ¼ c loosely packed fresh chopped cilantro
    • 1 tsp chili powder
    • ½ tsp ground cumin
    • ½ tsp oregano
    • ⅛ tsp garlic salt
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • 1 T lime juice
    • 1 -2 T approved oil (I like avocado oil for this)



    Mix together your flaxseed meal and water and set it aside until it gels.


    Place all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Use a potato masher or the back of a large spoon to mash the beans, leaving a few in tact for texture.


    In a large skillet, heat a thin layer of oil over medium high heat.


    Form the sweet potato mixture into 6 patties.


    When the skillet is hot enough to sizzle, add the patties, in batches if necessary. Cook on one side until a crispy exterior is formed, about 5-7 minutes.


    Carefully flip each patty and cook an additional 5 minutes on the second side.


    Serve with your favorite toppings like guacamole. Enjoy!
