But being a cook by profession, I never really follow recipes exactly, except in baking of course. I changed up the whole wheat flour in the original recipe and used Stone-ground Black Bean Flour, thought it would add more fibre and protein. So I decided I'd do a little step by step with photos if anyone wanted to try these. The were good, but I recently found a different recipe using chick peas instead of beans, so I think I would like those even better.
|the recipe says to bake your sweet potato, but to save time, I peeled and sliced mine then threw it in the oven til tender, probably 15-20 mins. Alot quicker!|
|Then open your can of beans, rinse really well, and mash them with your baked sweet potatoes|
|season and add enough flour to bind it so you can form patties.|
|Next coat the outside with Panko bread crumbs seasoned with whatever you'd like, I added Cajun spice. Then heat up a frying pan with oil and pan fry til golden.|
|Top it with your choice, I used avocado, red onion, hummus and sriacha mayo, on a whole grain bun. Delish! I paired this with a fresh corn salad which I will share with you all tomorrow!!|
Can you believe it's been about 3 months that I've been 'vegetarian'? I completely cut out beef, pork, chicken, but will eat seafood, and occasionally fish, mostly just shrimp. I used to LOVE pork products like sausage, bacon, deli meats...etc...but have not touched them at all! Don't get me wrong, I see those delicious breakfast sausages or bacon at work daily, and I do have urges, but I have not given in to them!
