 Ingredients List

  • 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


1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Bake the sweet potato for 50-60 minutes or until soft.

2. 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 1 tablespoon oil in a food processor.

3. Mix until smooth.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. Serve on a bun with a dollop of avocado cream sauce
