Foodie Friday: Sweet Potato, Bean burger.

"His and Hers"

 Boyfriend and I try to cook together anytime we can, which brings joy to my heart! It's a dream that we both love trying new food! 
[how freaking cute is a guy cooking in the kitchen?] 
This week [after a VERY hard day for me] boyfriend suggested this recipe i said i wanted to make a few weeks ago. We made sweet potato, white bean burgers with avocado. Good freaking golly, they were SO GOOD!

Sweet Potato Veggies Burgers
[with white beans!]
makes 3-4 large patties

^^ his ^^            ^^ hers ^^

1 19oz can of cannelloni white beans, drained
1 large sweet potato, baked/peeled/mashed (about 2 cups)
2 tsp maple or agave syrup
1 tsp Adobo Spice (or another fave spice!)
1/4 cup wheat flour
salt to taste if needed

plentiful Panko and Bread crumbs
corn oil for pan

burgers: avocado, Dijon mustard, buns, onion, olive oil, pepper


1. Bake sweet potato.
2. Add drained beans to mixing bowl. Mash beans.
3. Mash in seasoning, flour and any additional seasoning. Your mixture will be quite soft and moist. But you should be able to form a patty. Add more flour or a scoop of breadcrumbs - or dry rice to thicken the mixture if needed.

4. Mash in sweet potato. 

4. Heat 1 Tbsp corn oil in a pan over high heat.
5. Form a patty from mixture and coat in Panko crumbs. Thick coating. Then drop the patty in the pan. Repeat until the pan is filled. Cook until browned on both sides. You could also bake. If baking, use less Panko.

6. Transfer cooked patties to paper towel. Cool for a few minutes.
7. Serve on toasted bun with lotsa toppings.

 This patty does fall kind of apart as you eat it. But that is OK because it tastes yummy.I remedied this by eating it sans Bun with Avocado and Dijon.

This burger is SERIOUSLY amazing! Boyfriend and i both LOVED IT. 
It even made great leftovers!

We changed the recipe a bit from the original above [click the image], but you can make it either way, and I'm sure it will be splendid!

Let me know if you make one! It's highly recommended you do!

Happy Foodie Friday!
