Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burger

1 tablespoon oil
1 onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 carrot, grated finely
1 cup black beans, cooked
1 baked sweet potato, scooped out of skin
1 cup red quinoa, cooked
¾ cup bread crumbs/gluten free bread crumbs
1 tablespoons caraway seeds (OPTIONAL)
½ teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon adobo sauce (If you don’t like spicy, use 1 tsp oftomato paste, or tomato sauce)

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic and lower heat. Cook until lightly browned, several minutes (5-7). Add carrots and beans and cook an additional 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Turn off heat. Mash slightly in pan, until beans are half crushed.

Place skillet mixture in large bowl with remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. If mixture is too moist, add more breadcrumbs. Form into 6 patties. Cook what you need on a George Forman Grill, in a skillet with a little oil, or in the oven at 350 degrees 30 to 45 minutes turning over half way through the baking. Wrap the rest in saran wrap and freeze until needed!

  1. Although, I opted to not add the caraway seeds I , I thought it would be good with the caraway seeds and served with sauteed onions and peppers for a sausage like taste. I did add an Indian masala spice mix to change the flavor. You can go anywhere with this burger.
