Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burgers

Ingredients

15 ounces black beans, rinsed and drained
1 large sweet potato, cooked, peeled
1 cup bread crumbs* (panko, fresh bread crumbs, etc.)
1 large bell pepper, minced
1 egg, whisked
1/2 large red onion, mined
3 scallions, minced
1/4 cup cotija cheese, grated or crumbled
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 serrano pepper, minced*
1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 teaspoons agave nectar
Juice and zest of 1 lime, minced
1 tablespoon kosher salt

Preparation

1
Put half of the black beans in a food processor and blend until the mixture is similar to chunky peanut butter.
2
Dump the chunky bean mixture into a large bowl, adding remaining beans along with all other ingredients except the salt. Mix well with your hands. Add more breadcrumbs if the mixture is not thick enough.
3
Form thick patties and place on a plate. Chill in the fridge for an hour.
4
Once chilled, spray a frying pan with cooking spray. When hot, add the patties and cook 3-5 minutes per side. Serve immediately.
5
Taste a tiny piece of the serrano before adding it. Use the burn factor to gauge how much you’d like to add.
