For the Burgers:
For the Sweet Potato Planks:
In a large bowl, lightly mush the beans, still leaving some good texture and full beans in the mix.
Add in the Trifecta Quinoa (you can microwave before for a minute if you desire but it is not necessary).
Mix in the jalapenos, onions, bell pepper, spinach, and garlic.
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.
Meanwhile, in the microwave heat the potatoes for 2-3 minutes to get them to be slightly softer and easier to cook.
Once the potatoes are decently cool, slice into long strips.
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.
On the other half of the skillet, cook the veggie burgers.
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.
Serve on a whole wheat bun, or by itself!
