Serve on whole wheat buns with your favorite burger fixings. Try chutney or salsa as a topping.


1 1/2 cup
black beans
1/2 cup
sunflower seeds
1/2 cup
brown rice
1 teaspoon
red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons
soy sauce
2 tablespoons
2 tablespoons
whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon
1 teaspoon
chili powder
1 dash
salt and pepper
1 cup
red onion
1/2 cup
sweet potato
1/2 cup
1 tablespoon


Place the beans into a medium-sized bowl. Using a potato masher or large spoon, mash beans to a coarse paste.
Add the remaining ingredients (except the bread crumbs and oil) and mix well. If mixture is dry, add a little more water until mixture binds together.
Shape the sticky bean mixture it into four large patties. Coat both sides of the patties in the bread crumbs and set aside.
Heat the oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, and fry patties 1-2 minutes on each side until very crisp and brown.
