  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Poke a few holes into sweet potato with a fork; place on a greased baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until sweet potato can be easily pierced with a fork, 35 to 45 minutes. Remove from oven and cool until easily handled. Reduce heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
  3. Peel sweet potato and place into a large bowl. Add black beans and mash with a whisk or fork. Add oats, onions, Dijon mustard, cumin, ginger, salt, and cinnamon and mix until well combined. Shape mixture into 6 patties with wet hands and place onto prepared baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cooked in the center and crisp on the outside, about 8 minutes on each side.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Instead of freshly grated ginger, 1/4 teaspoon of ginger powder can be used.
  • A food processor can be used in step 3 if desired.
  • Both white and red onions work well for this recipe.
  • Patties will keep fresh in the refrigerator for a few days or you can freeze them in a well-insulated container or freezer bag and reheat in the microwave or oven.

I made it without adding salt, and it was pretty yummy. It didn't knock me out of the park with the flavor, personally-- but everyone who ate it enjoyed it, and I received several compliments!

Tasted great.. easy to make. Only thing was the cooking time for me was way off... Baked for 20-25 minutes per side.. when I tried to turn ~ 8 minutes it was still far too soft to flip.
