Sweet Potato Burgers

I've made these sweet potato burgers a couple times and love them! They are easy to make and healthy!

Ingredients (makes 4)
2 sweet potatoes
2 bulbs of roasted garlic
1 cup cannellini benas (rinsed and drained if canned)
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 cup panko bread crumbs
1/3 cup wheat flour
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cumin
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
1 avocado, sliced
2/3 cup plain greek yogurt
extra salt and pepper for seasoning yogurt/cream

First, preheat the oven to 375 to roast the garlic. Cut off the top half - a little less than 1/4 of the garlic head. Put a little olive oil on it and roast in the oven for 45 minutes.

It comes out sweet and carmelized - its so yummy. You can squeeze it right out of the bulb once done.

Pierce potatoes 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, bread crumbs and flour. Mix together until combined, then place bowl in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.

While mixture is chilling, combine yogurt with 2 bulbs (squeezed out) of roasted garlic cloves, 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.
