sweet potato black bean burgers

ingredients
  1. 1 tablespoon ground flaxseed meal+3 tablespoons water (or 1 egg)
  2. 1 cup cooked mashed sweet potato (from 1 large or 2 smaller sweet potatoes)
  3. 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  4. 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
  5. 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh chopped cilantro
  6. 1 teaspoon chili powder

  8. 1/2 teaspoon oregano
  9. 1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
  10. 1/4 teaspoon salt

  12. oil (I like avocado oil for this)

instructions
  • 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.
