BBQ Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

BBQ Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers


1/2 cup cooked brown rice
 3/4 C Peanuts, roasted & salted (process until crumbly bits)
2 Sweet Potatoes (oven baked)
1 Can Cannellini White Beans, drained and rinsed
1 Can Black Beans, drained rinsed
2 Tbsp. BBQ sauce
1/4 Cup Onion, diced
2 Tbsp. Parsley, chopped
1/4 tsp.  Salt and Pepper
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder

Burger Buns
Avocado (tossed in lemon juice)
1 Tomato
BBQ sauce


Cook the sweet potato in the oven at 425 degrees for about an hour, or until fully cooked. Then peel off the skin. Mash.

In a food processor, process the peanuts until they are fully chopped.

Cook the rice according to the package to yield 1/2 a cup.

Add the sweet potato, peanuts, rice, chopped onion, beans, BBQ sauce, and seasonings in a large bowl. Mash together until thick and creamy.

Mold patties together: about a handful a patty.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Pull the patties out of the oven.  Cook in a skillet with a touch of olive oil for 2 minutes on each side. This will crisp up the patties.

 Serve on a bun with mayo, BBQ sauce, tomato and avocado!
