Sweet Potato Black Bean Quinoa Burgers
Author - Alyssa Rimmer
Today we’re having burgers, but not just any burgers, smoky sweet potato and black bean quinoa burgers.
Sweet potatoes and black beans are a classic combination – remember my recent quinoa bowl recipe? – and they’re the perfect match for these burgers.
And with the fresh red onions and Mexican spices thrown into the mix? It screams summer.
When making these quinoa burgers, I wanted to keep them as true to their roots as possible, meaning I didn’t want to have to add a bunch of fillers to help them stick together. So rather than boiling and mashing the potatoes, I grated them and added them uncooked into the mixture (thanks Angela for the tip!). Grating the potatoes helps reduce the amount of dry ingredients you need, so we only ended up using ½ cup of oats and ½ cup of quinoa.
These burgers also don’t use eggs to bind them together. They’re 100% vegan and you’d never be able to tell the difference!
Oh and one final thing I adore about this recipe? Everything is made with the food processor. That means minimal prep and minimal clean up. Doesn’t get much better than that!
