BBQ Black Bean Burgers

2 cups mashed sweet potato (I accidentally bought yams but they were still good!) - roughly two large sweet potatoes
1 cup salted black beans (mashed)
1 cup cooked brown rice
1/4 cup flax meal (I would double this next time or do half a cup of ground oatmeal)
1/2 cup finely diced green onion
2 1/2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. smoked paprika
salt and pepper
garlic salt to taste

Cook sweet potatoes at 400 for about 30 mins. Put in a bowl and mash together. Add the remaining ingredients. Form into thin patties and pan fry in cast iron before cooking in the oven for 20 minutes. I used Trader Joes garlic and herb pizza crust for the "bun" and topped the burger with pickles, tomato, garlic aioli mustard and BBQ sauce. The burgers turned out pretty soft - I might add more flax meal and/or ground oatmeal and cook for longer in the oven. Other than being super messy, the burgers were super tasty! I picked up new dill kettle chips from TJ's which was a perfect side.

As always, recipe adapted from Minimalist Baker
