Notes

To make this recipe gluten-free, use certified gluten-free oats and gluten-free hamburger buns. To veganize this recipe, substitute soy yogurt for Greek yogurt when making the cream sauce.

Sweet Potato Black Bean Veggie Burger

Ingredients

  1. For the burgers:
  2. 1 medium sweet potato
  3. 1/2 cup dry millet
  4. 1/2 cup rolled oats
  5. 2 tablespoons fresh cilantro
  6. 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  7. 1 teaspoon cumin
  8. 1/2 teaspoon salt
  9. 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  10. 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained
  11. 1 cup corn
  12. 2 tablespoons olive oil
  13. 8 whole wheat hamburger buns
  1. For the cream sauce:
  2. 1 ripe avocado
  3. 3 ounces nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  4. 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice
  5. 1/4 teaspoon salt
  6. 1 Roma tomato, diced

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake the sweet potato for 50-60 minutes or until soft.
  • While the sweet potato is baking, cook the millet until soft, about 20-30 minutes.
  • Once the sweet potato is baked and cooled, combine sweet potato, oats, one cup of black beans, cilantro, garlic powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and 1 tablespoon oil in a food processor. Mix until smooth.
  • In a separate bowl, mix together the sweet potato mixture with the remaining beans, the corn, and millet.
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large pan on medium heat. Place heaping spoonfuls of the mixture onto the hot pan, and use the back of the spoon to pat them flat and form four-inch-diameter patties. Brown both sides of each burger.
  • While the patties are cooking, mash the avocado with a fork. Mix in the Greek yogurt, lime juice, and salt. Stir in the tomatoes, and set aside.
  • Serve on a bun with a dollop of avocado cream sauce.
