Vegetarian Sweet Potato and Black Bean Burger Patties

The perfect veggie pattie made from sweet potato and black beans. We have kept the mixture slightly chunky with the grated sweet potato and hand-mashed black beans as it gives the pattie a nice texture and doesn't dry out like some veggie patties do.

  • 400g cooked black beans, 400g tin (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 small orange sweet potato (1 cup, grated)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 Tbsp flour or spelt flour
  • ½  tsp Paprika
  • ½ tsp  ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground coriander
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  1. In a medium bowl add the black beans, mashing roughly with the back of a fork.
  2. Add remaining ingredients (excluding oil) and mix well.
  3. Form into four patties.
  4. Add oil to a large pan over a medium-high heat, add patties and reduce heat. Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side until golden brown and cooked through.

  • You can swap out black beans for kidney beans or butter beans and the sweet potato for grated carrot or beetroot - you just might need to adjust the amount of flour to get them to the right consistency.
