Vegan, Gluten Free, Dairy Free
1 can of sweet potato
2 cans cannellini or pinto beans, rinsed and drained
2 heaping Tbsp tahini
2 Tbsp maple or agave syrup
1/2 tsp Cajun seasoning
1/3 cup oats, pulsed in magic bullet, blender or food processor to grind it a bit
1 mango, seeded and chopped
2 oranges, peeled and chopped
1 avocado, seeded and chopped
1/4 jalapeno pepper, chopped
Juice of 1 lime
Handful fresh cilantro, chopped
1. Preheat oven to 350F. Add all burger ingredients to a food processor and pulse a few times, so just mixed. Form into patties and place on a baking tray rubbed with oil. Bake for 20 to 30 minutes, turning halfway through. Turn on broiler to high at the end to crisp outside - about 1 to 2 minutes or until browned.
2. Meanwhile mix the salsa ingredients in a small bowl.
3. Top each burger with a generous heaping of salsa and serve with Barboursville Viognier or Warwick First Lady Cabernet.
