Sweet potato and black bean veggie burgers
- 1/2 cup quinoa

- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour (can be replaced with whole wheat to gluten free flour)
- 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/2 teaspoon steak spice seasoning
Preheat oven to 400 F. Roast whole, unpeeled sweet potato for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and reduce heat to 375F.

In bowl of a food processor, add beans, cooked sweet potato, red onion, garlic, salt, pepper, and steak spice. Pulse just enough to incorporate ingredients.
Place in a large bowl and add cooked quinoa and flour. Mix ingredients and shape into patties using 2 approx. 2 level ice cream scoops per patty.
