A little bit of spice and sweet potato get on famously in a meatless burger. As much as we love flame-kissed food, this burger is better flipped in a frying pan vs the grill. 


Ingredients
1
yam or sweet potato
1 can (19 oz/540 ml)
low sodium black beans
12
red onion
1 14 cups
cooked quinoa, cooled
12 cup
hemp hearts
3 tbsp
package (one or another):
Salmon RubSalmon Rub
1 tbsp
oil
1 head
iceberg, or butter lettuce, about 16 leaves

Toppings (optional): Smokin’ BBQ Sauce, sliced red onion, sliced tomato, pickles, mayonnaise

Preparation
  1. Slice yam in half lengthwise. Place in Multipurpose Steamer. Cover; microwave on high for 6 min or until tender.  
  2. While yam is cooking, drain and rinse beans. Using a box grater, grate onion over a paper towel. Gently squeeze to remove excess liquid.  
  3. When yam is cooked, add beans to steamer. Using Ground Meat Separator, mash. There should be a few beans left whole. Add onion, quinoa, hemp hearts, and seasoning. Using a wooden spoon or your hands, mix until well combined.  
  4. Divide mixture into four patties, about 1” thick.   
  5. In a non-stick fry pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add patties; cook 4–5 min per side, or until browned on both sides and heated through.  
  6. To assemble, make four sets of two stacked lettuce leaves. Top each stack with a burger; add additional toppings, as desired. Top with remaining lettuce leaves.

Hemp hearts are a nutrition powerhouse! They are a great source of healthy fat and pack 10 g protein per 3 tbsp—that’s almost as much protein as 2 eggs! Look for hemp hearts in the natural food aisle of most grocery stores.
