Sweet and Spicy Veggie Burgers!


  • 1 ½ pounds sweet potatoes
  • ⅓ cup uncooked millet or quinoa (or 1 cup cooked)
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats (use gluten-free if needed)
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ small red onion, diced
  • ½ cup lightly packed fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons cumin powder
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon chipotle powder or smoked hot paprika
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • High quality good fat oil of your choice
  • 8 whole wheat hamburger buns (or bunless if you are watching carbs!)
  • Mixings of choice, I love avocado on mine!


  1. Roast the sweet potatoes.
  2. Cook the millet or quinoa.
  3. Grind the oats: Use a food processor or blender to grind the oats until the flakes are broken up, but not as fine as flour.
  4. Mix the burgers: In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of your electric mixer, combine the cooled sweet potatoes and millet, black beans, onion, cilantro, cumin, chili powder, chipotle or paprika, and salt. Use a potato masher, a big mixing spoon, or the paddle attachment of your mixer to mix really well.
  5. Mix in the oats: Sprinkle the ground oats over the mixture and mix well with a big spoon until the mixture holds together when you shape a portion into a patty. If possible, cover and refrigerate the mixture for the best results.
  6. Use a measuring cup to measure out ½ cup of the mixture. Gently shape it into a patty of about 3-inch patties.
  7. Pan fry the burgers: Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium heat. When it’s hot, place several burgers in the pan, leaving enough room to flip them. Cook each patty until browned and heated through, about 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  8. Remove from pan and assemble burgers.
