3 cups peeled cubed yams, cooked in water until soft and cooled
1-15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup corn, cooked
1/2 large onion, minced
2 large cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup cooked red quinoa
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup vital gluten flour (this is not regular flour)
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds
good shake or two of salt
fresh ground black pepper
1 teaspoon cumin, ground
1 teaspoon oregano, ground
1 teaspoon chili powder
Siracha hot sauce, to taste
Combine the cooked yams and cooked black beans and mush together (but don't blend till smooth). Mix the rest of the ingredients together, then using your hands, form into 8 balls. Press the balls into a patty.
Place patties on prepared baking pan. Spray top of patties with cooking spray (Pam, or other brand). Bake the patties for 30-40 minutes. Let cool at least 5 min before serving.
Serve with slices of avocado and vegan spicy mayo dressing on sourdough burger buns.
These freeze well and make quick meals heated on an as needed basis.
