Author:
Serves: 8-10 burgers
Ingredients
  • 2 med. Sweet Potatoes (or 1 large), cookied, peeled, and cubed.
  • 2 15oz cans Black Beans, rinsed, and drained.
  • 1 cup Brown Rice, pre-cooked
  • ½ cup Corn, fresh or frozen
  • ½ Red Pepper, diced
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp dried onion flakes
  • ½-1 tsp Dried Chipotle powder
  • 1 tbsp Oregano (Mexican if available)
  • ½ tsp Cumin
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Pepper
  • ½ cup Ketchup
  • Don't forget you Buns, toppings, and condiments to complete your Burger Experience
Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine oats, sweet potatoes, and one can of black beans.
  2. Process just enough (a few seconds) to bring the ingredients together still in a chunky form.
  3. Place processed ingredients into a bowl.
  4. Add remaining ingredients to the bowl. (Remaining can of beans, Veggies, spices, and ketchup)
  5. Mix well. Using your hands, form the appropriate size of burger you desire. (Remember because you're not dealing with a meat product, these burgers won't shrink much)
  6. Oven Method: In a preheat 425 degree oven, bake burgers on parchment or a greased pan for 10 minutes. Flip, and bake a remaining 5 minutes.
  7. Stove top Method: Prepare fry pan with non-stick spray. Cook burgers on medium-high heat, until golden on each side, taking care to flip them without breaking.
  8. Grill / BBQ Method: Freeze burgers first for best results. Use a well oiled grill or a piece of foil on the grill (coated with non-stick spray) to cook your burgers. Try not to turn or flip burgers until a golden crust / char marks appear. Flip carefully and cook until golden.
  9. Enjoy with your favorite buns, toppings, and condiments.
Notes
Suggested cook time is not including the time involved cooking brown rice, or if you choose to cook your sweet potatoes in the oven. A medium sweet potato is cooked in 5 minutes in a standard microwave.
Dried garlic, onion, chipotle powder are used for convenience. Feel free to add sautéed onions and garlic to the recipe, along with canned chipotle peppers.
Depending on your heat tolerance to Spice, you can choose to add ½ tsp of Chipotle powder... or more.
If you do not have a food processor, you can still create this recipe fairly well using a potato masher to bring the ingredients together.
