Sweet Potato & Bean BurgersMakes 7
2 c sweet potatoes, diced
1/2 c quinoa
1 c water or vegetable broth
1 15 oz can pinto beans (black beans work great too)
2 scallions, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 T lime juice
1 t tamari
1 t chili powder
1/2 t coriander
1/2 t cumin
1/2 t salt
1/2 t pepper
1/2 t sriracha
1/4 t paprika
3/4 c panko breadcrumbs or rice chips
Cook sweet potatoes in water until they are soft. Drain water
Cook quinoa in water. Bring both to boil and lower heat. Leave until quinoa has soaked up all the water. If they are still a little hard add a touch more water until all are done.
Put remaining ingredients into a bowl. Mash with a potato masher until the beans are smashed and all the ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Mix in sweet potatoes and quinoa to the bean mixture.
Scoop out 1/2 c patties. Bake at 400º for 30 minutes, flipping them half way through.
I like to serve them on a bun with avocado, greens, a tomato and a little garlicky vegenaise.
