Sweet potato black bean patties
Sriracha mayo, optional
For serving
1 medium sweet potato, cooked
(1)15-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed (1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup chopped small red onion
1/2 cup rolled oats or quick oats
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2-1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Vegan Mayo
1 tablespoon Sriracha hot sauce
tiny pinch garlic powder
6 burger buns
lettuce, tomato slices, red onion, avocado slices

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a baking sheet with olive oil. Cut the sweet
    potato in half lengthwise and place facedown on the pan. Bake for about 30 minutes, until
    fork tender and cooked through. Remove from oven. Lower the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. When the sweet potatoes are cool enough to handle, peel off the skin and add the flesh to a
    large bowl. Mash with a potato masher, add the black beans and slightly mash the beans into
    the sweet potatoes, leaving some beans whole.
  3. To the bowl with the sweet potatoes and black beans, add the diced red onion, oats, cumin,
    smoked paprika, onion powder, garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Stir well with a large
    spoon until combined. Taste, add more salt if desired.
  4. Prepare a baking sheet for the burgers by either lightly greasing with oil or using parchment
    paper. You can use the same pan you cooked the sweet potato on.
