Reel of how to make burgers from @multisport_nutrition
400-450g sweet potato (roughly 1 medium or large potato)
1 x 400g tin black beans, rinsed thoroughly and drained
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground smoked paprika
Sprinkle cayenne pepper
45g (1/4 cup) uncooked quinoa (or 1/2 cup breadcrumbs)
1 heaped Tbs BBQ sauce
Extra large egg (1 per person), fried
Multigrain or sourdough bread rolls / bread to serve or wraps
Salad to serve: spinach or coleslaw, sliced tomatoes, beetroot, avocado, sliced cheese
Preheat oven to 200°C
Peel and dice sweet potato into 1-2 cm chunks. Lightly toss in extra virgin olive oil and roast for 30 minutes, until goldening and softened.
Meanwhile, cook quinoa according to packet instructions (about 1/4 cup with 1/2 cup water for 10 mins).
Process walnuts in a blender/ food processor and then add beans and blend. There should be beans still slightly intact and some mashed up. Transfer to large mixing bowl or use processor jug.
Add spices, BBQ sauce, and cooked quinoa. Mix well.
Once sweet potato is cooked, using a fork, mash potato on the tray. Transfer to mix and stir well to form a paste like consistency.
Scoop 1/2 cup portions of the mixture into large balls. Press down into patty sizes and set aside on a plate. Repeat to create 5 patties all up. Note: if sweet potato is a little smaller, you may get 4 Patties.
Cook in a large fry pan over medium heat with extra virgin olive oil / garlic infused oil, for about 5-10 minutes (3-5 minutes each side).
While cooking, fry eggs to serve.
Serve on bread rolls, wraps, lettuce cups or as a salad. Top with, cheese, tomato, spinach or coleslaw and burger sauce. Avocado, cucumber and capsicum also go well.
