Vegan Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burgers – The Ultimate Veggie Burger!
These Vegan Black Bean and Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers will not disappoint. They measure up in a number of ways making them way more appealing than their carnivorous competitors.
- They’re bold, satisfying and hearty.
- Low in fat and high in fiber they’re heart healthy.
- We’ve all had flimsy veggie burgers that have fallen apart in the pan, on the grill or in the burger bun. These are deliciously sturdy and won’t let you down.
- Plenty of protein is provided from the black beans.
- The flavors are irresistibly bold.
- They can be pan fried, baked (my favorite) or grilled.
- They also freeze really well for later use.
How do I make Vegan Black Bean Sweet Potato Burgers?
There are a few steps but they’re all very simple.
- In a large pan saute the onion, celery, garlic and red pepper. Add the seasonings, chopped greens and corn. Cook until everything is nice and tender. Remove to a large bowl.
2. Add the drained rinsed beans.
3. Then the COOKED sweet potatoes. If I don’t have some leftover sweet potatoes in the fridge I steam a couple on the stove top especially for this dish.
4. It’s really important to add plenty of wonderful flavor, especially when you’re cooking without oil.
- If you want to give yourself a lovely treat try this fabulous Balsamic Vinegar.
- I love to use a good quality Cumin
- Harissa Spice and
- Herbes de Provence
- Lime zest and juice go beautifully with black beans and sweet potatoes
- Dijon mustard – always adds a smooth depth of flavor
5. Pour in the oat flour and mix everything together. Shape into patties and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Place in the fridge for a couple of hours, or overnight if you prefer.
6. Bake at 375 F for 15 minutes on each side or if you prefer, fry or grill them. Serve on a lightly toasted wholewheat burger bun with all the fixings.
