Mashed sweet potato easily binds these spiced veggie burgers made with a mixture of brown rice, sweet corn, black beans, red bell peppers and poblano peppers. Serve on a whole grain bun with your favorite condiments.
Ingredients: 
  • 1 medium sweet potato
  • 2 cups frozen Engine 2 Plant-Strong® Organic Fiesta Blend Grain Medley
  • 1/3 cup dry whole wheat bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup raw sunflower seeds, toasted
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled jalapeño peppers
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon no-salt chili powder
Method: 
Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Prick sweet potato with a fork and place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake until very tender, about 1 hour. Let cool slightly. Lower the oven temperature to 375°F. Reserve the baking sheet.

Peel sweet potato and mash; measure out 3/4 cup and place in a large bowl. Reserve any remaining sweet potato for another use.

Add grain medley, bread crumbs, sunflower seeds, cilantro, jalapeño, tomato paste and chili powder to the bowl with sweet potato and stir until well blended. Form into 4 patties and place on the reserved baking sheet. Bake until heated through, about 30 minutes, gently flipping patties halfway through cooking time.
