Recipe – Sweet Potato/Bean Burgers

Veggie BurgerThis recipe combines sweet potatoes and navy beans for a veggie burger that’s packed with carbs, protein, vitamin A and fiber.

Ingredients:

2 medium sized sweet potatoes
14 oz cooked and drained white navy beans (I use dried beans, soaked and then cooked with Kombu)
2/3 cup garbanzo bean flour
1 red onion, medium-sized, finely chopped
½ cup walnuts, finely chopped
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp ground cumin
¼ tsp Himilayan pink salt or sea salt
¼ tsp pepper

Directions:

Bake the sweet potatoes until tender. Let cool, then peel and mash. Add the navy beans and continue mashing.

Stir in the flour, red onion, walnuts, mustard and spices. **

Form into patties. Grill for about 4 minutes on each side, or until crust is crispy, depending on cooking temperature and thickness of patty.

For a vitamin rich alternative to “normal” mayo, in a blender combine 1 cup parsley, 1/3 cup olive oil, juice of ½ lemon, 1 finely chopped garlic clove and ¼ teaspoon salt. Blend until smooth and spread on your buns.

** You could add ½ - 1 cup of shredded carrots, or any other veggie chopped fine for more veggie punch.
