1 lb. sweet potatoes peeled, cut into ½-inch cubes
½ cup quinoa rinsed and drained
1 cup vegetable broth or water
1 ½ tsp. cumin
¾ tsp. paprika
½ tsp. garlic powder
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
1 ½ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
15 oz. black beans canned, rinsed and drained
1 cup oats quick or old-fashioned, gluten-free if desired
½ cup sweet onion finely diced
¼ cup cilantro finely chopped
In a medium-sized pot combine sweet potatoes, quinoa, and vegetable broth. Cover pot with a lid and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 22-25 minutes, or until sweet potatoes are fork tender.
In a small bowl combine cumin, paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Whisk to combine.
Pulse oats in a high speed blender 3-4 times to make a coarse oat flour.
Once sweet potatoes and quinoa are done cooking, add them to a large bowl with black beans, coarse oat flour, onion, cilantro, and seasoning mix. Mix until well combined. (You may have to use your hands for this!)
Divide burger mixture into 8 equal portions. Form each portion into a round disc about 1 inch thick.
Spray a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray and place over medium heat. Place burger patties in a single layer. (You may have to cook these in 2 batches depending on the size of your skillet.)
Cook patties for 4-5 minutes per side.
