  • 2 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 lb, peeled, cubed and cooked)
  • 15 oz black beans (canned, drained)
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup uncooked quinoa
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 cup almond meal
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg


  • In a small saucepan, bring water and quinoa to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover with a lid and simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the water has absorbed and quinoa is cooked through. Cook your potatoes whichever way you prefer (I boiled my cubed potatoes in water for about 20 minutes).
  • Add your cooked sweet potatoes and half of the black beans to a Vitamix or other food processor/blender. Process until combined. Then, transfer contents into a medium bowl and stir in the rest of the black beans, almond meal, quinoa, chopped onion, and spices. Form 8 patties and place on a greased baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, preheat the oven to 350F. When ready, bake your burgers for 35-45 minutes until lightly browned cooked through.
