Ingredients

  • For the burgers:

  • 1

    medium sweet potato

  • 1/2

    cup dry millet

  • 1/2

    cup rolled oats

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh cilantro

  • 1 1/2

    teaspoons garlic powder

  • 1

    teaspoon cumin

  • 1/2

    teaspoon salt

  • 1/2

    teaspoon pepper

  • 15-ounce can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1

    cup corn

  • 2

    tablespoons olive oil

  • 8

    whole wheat hamburger buns

  • For the cream sauce:

  • 1

    ripe avocado

  • 3

    ounces nonfat plain Greek yogurt

  • 1

    teaspoon fresh lime juice

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt

  • 1

    Roma tomato, diced

Directions

Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake the sweet potato for 50-60 minutes or until soft. While the sweet potato is baking, cook the millet until soft, about 20-30 minutes. Once the sweet potato is baked and cooled, combine sweet potato, oats, one cup of black beans, cilantro, garlic powder, cumin, salt, pepper, and one tablespoon oil in a food processor. Mix until smooth. In a separate bowl, mix together the sweet potato mixture with the remaining beans, the corn, and millet. Heat the remaining tablespoon of oil in a large pan on medium heat. Place heaping spoonfuls of the mixture onto the hot pan, and use the back of the spoon to pat them flat and form four-inch-diameter patties. Brown both sides of each burger. While the patties are cooking, mash the avocado with a fork. Mix in the Greek yogurt, lime juice, and salt. Stir in the tomatoes and set aside. Serve on a bun with a dollop of avocado cream sauce.
