BLACK BEAN BURGERS
350g orange sweet potatoes, peeled and cubed
45ml olive oil
Salt and pepper
1 large onion, chopped
10ml chopped garlic
5ml ground cumin
125ml rolled oats
250ml cooked quinoa
2x 400g tins of black beans, drained and rinsed
125ml chopped coriander
Whole wheat buns for serving
Sliced tomato, onion, gherkin and avo for serving
Place the sweet potato in a roasting pan, drizzle with about 30ml of the olive oil and season well. Roast in the oven at 180°C for 20-30 minutes until soft. Remove and cool. Heat the remaining 15ml of oil and fry the onion and garlic over a medium heat until soft. Add the spices and cook for a minute. Remove from the heat and cool. Pulse the oats in a blender or mini chopper until roughly chopped, the mixture should still have some texture. Combine the sweet potato, onions, oats, quinoa, beans and coriander in a food processor and pulse until combined. Adjust seasoning to taste. Shape the mixture into patties and fry in a little olive oil until golden brown on both sides. Serve in a bun with desired toppings.
