Sweet Potato Black bean burgers vegan
- 1/2 cup Sweet potato – , 1 small orange sweet potato
- 1 1/2 cup Black beans – cooked, drained, rinsed (15 oz, 400 g)
- 1/4 cup Gluten-free rolled oats – or millet flakes
- 1/4 cup Brown rice flour
- 1 small Onion – , chopped
- 1/4 cup Corn kernel – canned or frozen
- 1/4 cup Green peas – fresh or frozen
- 1/4 cup Red peppers – cubed
- Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C)
- Using a fork, pick holes all over the orange sweet potato, place onto a oven-proof baking dish . Add 1/2 cup water, cover with foil and bake for 40-60 minutes or until soft.
- Carefully remove from the oven using oven mitten, cut half and scoop out the flesh. Wait until it is fully cool down before using in the recipe. You can also prepare the mashed sweet potato few days before and store in the fridge.
- Add the cooked sweet potato flesh into a food processor along with half of the amount of black beans (¾ cup) . Process for 15-30 second on medium speed to combine and form a mash.
- Add rolled oats, brown rice flour, chopped brown onion, Mexican spices and process again for 30 seconds, until it forms a consistent sticky burger batter.
- Transfer the burger mixture to a medium bowl and stir in corn, peas, capsicum and the rest of the black beans.
- Cover two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
- Split the batter in 6 balls, place each balls on the baking paper leaving 4 inches space between each.
- With your hand palm, press/flatten each balls into burger patty – thickness of your choice, I love mine thin.
- Bake at 400°F (200°C) for 25-30 minutes or until crispy on the sides.
- Remove from oven, and serve as a burger patty into a vegan burger bun. I recommend tomato ketchup and Dijon mustard sauce along with avocado slices, tomato slices and lettuce.
- Store in the fridge up to 3 days in an airtight container. Rewarm in a slightly oiled frying pan or in the oven for 8 minutes at 150°C (300°F)
- Freeze your vegan black bean patties in an airtight container, make sure they don't overlap or it is more difficult to defrost them individually. Otherwise, place a piece of parchment paper between each patties to avoid them to stick together. Defrost in the fridge the day before. Rewarm in a hot frying pan with a drizzle of olive oil.
