Vegan Burgers too Delicious to Resist

Although I’m not vegan, I will say I do enjoy eating vegan here & there.  Therefore, regardless if you are vegan or not, if you enjoy eating healthy, I HIGHLY SUGGEST you try making these burgers.  You won’t be disappointed.

What you need:

  • 15oz can of black beans, dried & rinsed
  • 3 sweet potates, cubed (skin on)
  • 1/2 cup fresh corn
  • 2/3 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 large garlic gloves (finely minced)
  • 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 6 tablespoons rolled oats
  • 2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Let’s get cooking:

Once you finish cooking the quinoa & sweet potatoes, preheat the oven to 375 degrees

  • Mash half of the black beans in a bowl until paste-like, then add in the rest & give a light stir/mash to combine
  • In a large bowl, mash the sweet potato (each cube should be mashed, but not creamy)
  • Stir in the salt, pepper, cumin, oregano, coriander, chili powder, cayenne & olive oil to potato bowl
  • Mix in onion, garlic, corn, black beans, quinoa, sunflower seeds & oats until combined
  • Form patties (roughly 1/2-3/4 inches thick) …should make about 8 patties
  • Place each patty on a lightly greased pan & bake on each side for 15 minutes
  • Remove from oven & serve (I like using sesame Ezekial bread as a bun) …garnish to taste as well!

 

From dinner to breakfast…

You’ll surely have leftovers so why not carry this healthy dinner onto breakfast?

Heat 1 vegan burger on a skillet on medium heat

Crack 2 eggs in a bowl, add in a splash of almond milk, & mix

Combine into skillet with vegan burger until eggs are scrambled in with the burger & enjoy!

Happy, healthy, eating! : )
