Kidney Bean, Sweet Potato and Carrot Burger

Kidney Bean, Sweet Potato and Carrot Burger

Nutritious sweet potatoes and kidney beans add substance while fiber rich oats bind and shredded carrots add texture.  The end result is a brightly colored, savory-sweet veggie burger.  Kids will enjoy mixing together and shaping into patties.  This recipe comes to us from our friends at Veggiecation.

Kid: Grate sweet potato and shred carrots (if not already measured out).

 

Adult: Place drained and rinsed kidney beans in a food processor or blender and pulse until well mixed but not smooth.

 

Kid: Place mashed beans into a large bowl and add the remainder of the ingredients.  Mix well with your hands.

 

Together: Divide mixture into 4-5 portions and form into patties.

 

Adult: Cook on a hot, oiled pan or griddle over medium high heat until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side.  Serve with pita bread or a salad.
