Lunch today was a new creation that you must try. 3 ingredients total – so simple, healthy, and delicious.
What you need (for one serving):
- 1/2 cooked sweet potato (1.5 pts)
- 1/4 cup black beans (.5 pts)
- 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs (1 pt)
1.) Wash and poke holes in a sweet potato and microwave it for 5 minutes. OR use 1/2 leftover baked potato
2.) Put 1/4 cup canned beans and the sweet potato in a food processor and pulse until combined
3.) Put mixture into a bowl and add the panko crumbs.
4.) Mix until combined and form into patties.
If I was eating at home, I would have cooked them in a pan, but since I brought them with me to work, I microwaved them for 45 seconds and then threw them into the toaster. I served them open faced on a toasted arnold thin
And then added a spoonful of salsa onto each patty.
I served these with a side salad of romaine and radicchio with chopped garlic sprouts
And then leftover broccoli from the chinese restaurant
Oh my gosh, these burgers are amazing. And they take no time to prepare, especially if you have leftover sweet potato to throw in there. You probably know by now that sweet potato and black beans is one of my all time favorite combos, and I’ve just started making my own veggie burgers, so I thought why not a black bean sweet potato burger? I’m so happy I thought of this and tried it!
Total points for lunch today was 3 (burgers) + 1 (arnold thin) + 0 (salad) + 1 (broccoli – just a guess bc of the sauce which I mostly washed off) = 5
So much food for the points. You’ll definitely be seeing these burgers again, if not in your own kitchen, on here!
