Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

It’s so nice to find a burger recipe that is not only healthy but also really tasty. This is from Dr Fuhrman’s “The Eat to Live Cookbook“.

I think this is going to become a favourite of mine. Go on, give it a go, you’ll be so glad you did.

Sweet Potato Burger

1/3 cup raw cashews
1/3 cup raw pecans
40gm (15oz) can of black beans, drained
3/4 cup baked sweet potato, mashed
1/2 cup diced red onion
1/2 jalapeno pepper, deseeded and diced
3 tbsp. chopped coriander (cilantro)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. cider vinegar
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
3 tbsp. nutritional yeast
Small amount of olive oil or olive oil spray

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F)
Place nuts in Thermomix, Blender or food processor and grind to a fine powder.
Add remaining ingredients except for olive oil, and pulse to combine.
Form mixture into 6 burgers.
Place on a baking tray that has been rubbed lightly with olive oil.
Bake for 30 to 40 minutes until lightly browned. I flipped mine over half way through.

Serve with avocado, tomato, and red onion slices

    This burger does look delicious, especially topped with avocado, tomato and red onions! Who needs the bun?! It’s breakfast here right now – wish I had this burger sitting on my plate.

    After I combined all the ingredients, the mixture was somewhat wet and sticky. Any suggestions? I did cook the sweet potato first, does that make a difference???

    Just letting everyone know… I tried this recipe and it didn’t work out at all. Which was really unfortunate, since it sounded so good, and because it ended up being a big waste. It looks like the author hasn’t even tried it himself, as he doesn’t know whether he baked the potato or not first (though the recipe clearly says it should be baked and mashed). If I tried it again, I would probably use eggs (or a flax egg) and some type of grain to keep the mixture glued together better!

    • Sorry you didn’t have any success eclarek, but mine turned out well. The photograph shown is the end result and the taste was wonderful.
      I don’t use eggs as they are very high in Cholesterol and of course animal protein, which over time cause many health problems.
