Ingredients

  • 2 (14 ounce) cans black beans, drained, rinsed, and patted dry

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • 3/4 cup finely chopped bell pepper

  • 1 cup finely chopped yellow onion

  • 3 garlic cloves, minced

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs or oat flour

  • 1/3 cup of mashed sweet potatoes

  • 2 tablespoons ketchup, vegan Mayonnaise, or vegan BBQ sauce

  • pinch salt

Preparation

Step 1

Preheat oven to 325°F (163°C). Spread beans evenly onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes until slightly dried out.



Step 2

Meanwhile, sauté olive oil, chopped pepper, onion, and garlic over medium heat until peppers and onions are soft, about 5-6 minutes.



Step 3

Gently blot some of the moisture out. Place in a large bowl or in a food processor with the remaining ingredients. Stir or pulse everything together, then add the black beans. Mash with a fork or pulse the mixture, leaving some larger chunks of beans.



Step 4

Place patties on a parchment paper lined baking sheet and bake at 375°F (191°C) for 10 minutes on each side.



Step 5

Cool and serve with your favorite toppings.
