Made a few changes to Isabel Eats‘s recipe to make it more simple & with cleaner ingredients! I usually make a large batch because they make great lunch leftovers!
salt & pepper
Peel and chop sweet potatoes. Double boil them until soft (quickest way) or bake at 400 degrees until soft.
Cook quinoa (instructions usually on back of bag) I usually just throw into some boiling water. Then let it simmer and cover. I wait until all the water is gone. If there’s too much water I drain it using the lid.
Heat black beans on stovetop.
In a large bowl, add black beans & cooked sweet potatoes. Mash until consistency is only slightly chunky.
Add in cooked quinoa and spices. Mix together and form into 8 burger patties, about 1/3 cup of mixture each. Sometimes I add an egg to help the patties stick together better.
Place burger patties on a very greased baking sheet. Bake in 400 degree oven for 20 minutes. Flip over, spray other side with olive oil and bake for another 10 minutes.
Put it on some sprouted bread, add spinach, avocado & spicy mayo. Enjoy!
