Smoky Sweet Potato Burgers with Roasted Garlic Cream and Avocado

YIELD: 4 BURGERS
 
PREP TIME: 45 MINUTES
 
COOK TIME: 10 MINUTES
 
TOTAL TIME: 55 MINUTES


ingredients:

2 cups coarsely mashed sweet potatoes (or yams), about 2 large potatoes2 bulbs of roasted garlic1 cup cannellini benas (rinsed and drained if canned)2 garlic cloves, minced1/3 cup panko bread crumbs1/3 cup oat flour (or all-purpose, wheat, etc)1 large egg, lightly beaten1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika1 teaspoon onion powder1 teaspoon salt1/2 teaspoon pepper1/8 teaspoon cumin2-3 tablespoons olive oil1 avocado, sliced2/3 cup plain greek yogurt or sour cream1 teaspoon maple syrupextra salt and pepper for seasoning yogurt/cream
4 whole wheat buns



directions:

To roast garlic, see this tutorial. I like to roast a few bulbs at once (like 4-5) to have for the week.
Pierce potatoes (I used 2 large) all over with a fork and place on a paper towel, setting in the microwave. Microwave for 5 minutes, then flip and cook for 5 minutes more. Remove, slice in half and let cool until you can scoop out the flesh.
In a large bowl, coarsely mash beans with a fork. Add in sweet potato and mash together, then add in spices, salt and pepper, minced garlic, egg, panko and flour. Mix together until combined, then place bowl in the fridge for 15-20 minutes. This helps form them into patties, but as a warning they are still somewhat messy.
While mixture is chilling, combine yogurt/sour cream with 2 bulbs (squeezed out) of roasted garlic cloves, maple syrup and a sprinkle of salt and pepper in a blender or food processor. Process until smooth then set aside until ready to use.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil. Remove mixture from fridge and form into 4 equal patties, then place in the skillet once hot. Since the mixture can be wet and messy, do not move until they are fully cooked and golden on one side! This takes about 5-6 minutes. Then, add more oil if needed (this really helps cook them) and flip burgers very gently. Cook for another 5-6 minutes. Toast buns if desired.
