Sweet Potato & Red Bean Veggie Burgers Recipe
Prep Time: 20 min | Cook Time: 60 min | Yields: 7 burgers
+ 1 medium sweet potato, peeled and cut into cubes
+ 1 cup red beans, cooked (learn here how to cook and soak beans and legumes)
+ 1/2 cup rice flour
+ 1 tbsp olive oil
+ 1 egg
+ 1 onion, finely diced
+ 2 garlic cloves, minced
+ 2 tbsp flaxseed meal
+ 2 tsp lemon juice
+ sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
+ 1 ripe avocado
+ 2 tbsp tahini
+ 3 tbsp lime juice
+ 1 garlic clove
+ pinch of sea salt
+ whole grain buns
+ tomato slices
+ 1 bunch fresh parsley, finely chopped
To make the veggie burgers: Preheat oven to 350ºF / 175ºC. Place the sweet potato cubes on a lined baking sheet, drizzle 1/2 tbsp olive oil on top and roast for 30 minutes. Once cooled, mash the sweet potatoes and transfer to a large mixing bowl. Add all the remaining burger ingredients and stir to combine. If the texture is too mushy, add more flour. Shape the burgers with your hands and place them on a lined baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 15 minutes on one side, then flip over and bake for 15 more minutes.
To make the dressing: Place all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until creamy.
Cut the bun in halves, assemble the burgers and serve. Enjoy!
