I love veggie burgers. They are so delicious and versatile. You can eat them on a bun with some sweet potato fries or throw them into a salad salad. What I don’t like about most veggie burgers is that the are typically highly processed, containing several preservatives, and packed with gluten. This recipe makes veggies burgers healthy, delicious, and exactly what they should be – made of veggies!
These Sweet Potato Black Bean burgers are more of a Mexican twist on veggie burgers. You can pair them with guacamole or hot sauce. The flavor combination is a little bit spicy and delicious! These veggie burgers are made with primarily veggies and use gluten free oat flour to help them bind and stick together. The only other ingredient is spices! These veggie burgers are both gluten free and vegan. This recipe makes 4 veggie patties.
1 can black beans
1 medium sweet potato
1/4 red bell pepper
2 tbs chopped red onion
1/4 cup + 2tbsp gf oat flour
1 clove garlic
1. Slice a hole in the sweet potato and heat in the microwave for ~ 5 minutes or until softened. Set aside to cool.
2. Once the sweet potato is cooled, add all ingredients except for the last 2 tbsp of gf oat flour to a food processor. Pulse mixture until fully mixed. You will need to scrap the sides of the food processor several times throughout the process.
3. Form mixture into 4 veggie patties. The mixture will be slightly sticky so it will help to put the last 2 tbsp oat flour on a surface and form the veggie patties over the flour, slightly coating the outside.
4. Cook veggie burgers on a baking dish over parchment paper on 350 for ~ 20 minutes.
