INGREDIENTS

    For the Burgers:

  • 1 Cup of Trifecta Cooked Quinoa
  • 1 Yellow Onion, Diced
  • 1 Orange Bell Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp of Garlic, Minced
  • 1 Cup of Spinach, Chopped
  • 1 Cup of Black Beans, Drained and Washed
  • 1 Tsp of Paprika
  • Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • 1/8 Tsp of Cayenne
  • 1 Jalapeno, Chopped
  • 2 Tbsp of Flax Meal
  • For the Sweet Potato Planks:

  • 2 Medium Sized Golden Sweet Potatoes
  • Non Stick Cooking Spray
  • Salt

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. In a large bowl, lightly mush the beans, still leaving some good texture and full beans in the mix.

  2. Add in the Trifecta Quinoa (you can microwave before for a minute if you desire but it is not necessary).

  3. Mix in the jalapenos, onions, bell pepper, spinach, and garlic.

  4. Add in all of the seasonings (Only a dash of salt and pepper). Mix together until all ingredients are dispersed evenly. Form into patties and set off to the side on a plate.

  5. Meanwhile, in the microwave heat the potatoes for 2-3 minutes to get them to be slightly softer and easier to cook.

  6. Once the potatoes are decently cool, slice into long strips.

  7. In a skillet over medium high, spray with non-stick cooking spray and proceed to cook the sweet potatoes on one side of the skillet.

  8. On the other half of the skillet, cook the veggie burgers.

  9. Flip both the sweet potato planks and the veggie burgers over half way through and when golden brown on one side. Cook until all sides are golden brown.

  10. Serve on a whole wheat bun, or by itself!
