Black Bean Burgers & Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Thank you Amanda Rice for this recipe!!!

  • 2-3 cans of black beans (rather than black beans I am using left over black beans that I boiled for a separate recipe)
  • 2 Garlic Cloves (I have a huge can of minced garlic already so I will use that
  • 1-2 minced onion
  • cilantro (optional)
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup oats
Take all but 1/2 cup of black beans and puree them. Add all the other ingredients and mix together like a burger. Add the remaining 1/2 cup whole black beans & mix again. The form into little patties just like a burger. Heat your griddle or pan with a tad olive oil then brown each side for approx. 7 minutes each. Top with your favorite veggies & condiments.

Now for the sweet potatoes..

Wash them good. Cube leaving the skin as this is where the nutrients are found. Put in a bowl & drizzle with tsp of olive oil so they are wet. then add salt, pepper, garlic powder or onion powder.  Bake on 375 for 20 minutes or until crispy looking.


  1. I think cumin and chili powder would be great seasoning additions.
