Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers


1 cups black beans, cooked
1.5 cups sweet potato, cooked with skin on (I baked mine at 350 for an hour)
1/4 cup peas, frozen or fresh
1/4 cup onions, diced (I use red)
1 teaspoon garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup cooked quinoa
3 tablespoons gluten-free oats, partially ground
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
1 tablespoon taco seasoning* (see quick recipe below)
1/2 tablespoon olive oil

Taco Seasoning
1 Tbsp. Chili Powder
1/4 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/4 tsp. Onion Powder
1/4 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1/4 tsp. Dried Oregano
1/2 tsp. Paprika
1 1/2 tsp. Ground Cumin
1 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Black Pepper (optional)
Mix all ingredients together and use as called for in recipe above.

Always use organic and unsweetened ingredients whenever possible

Preheat your oven to 375.
Mash half of the beans in a bowl until paste-like. Add in the rest of the beans and give a very light stir/mash to combine.In a large bowl, mash the sweet potato. Each cube should be mashed, but you don’t want it creamy. Stir in the taco seasoning and olive oil, until combined. Mix in the onion, garlic, peas, black beans, quinoa, sunflower seeds, and ground oats, until just combined.
Form into balls, between your hands and flatten into 1/2″-3/4″ thick patties.
Place on a lightly greased baking sheet and bake at 375 for 30 minutes, flipping once halfway through.

So yummy and perfect for helping your body to heal! Beans are an excellent source of protein, fiber, folic acid and B3 and contain other B vitamins such as B6 and B2 along with high levels of the minerals molybdenum, copper, manganese and zinc. Sweet potatoes are an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin C, manganese, copper, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6. Additionally, they are a good source of potassium, dietary fiber, niacin, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, and phosphorus.
