Pinto Burgers with Sweet Potato Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes

Inspired by this recipe

 Burger Ingredients (makes about 6-8 burgers)

1 can of pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 can of diced tomatoes with zesty mild chiles, drained
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp of onion powder
2 green onions, ends removed and chopped
1 cup of carrots, shredded or chopped
1 cup of cilantro
2 cups of oats

Serve with:

whole wheat buns or bread
garnishes such as tomato, lettuce, onion, and avocado


Place all burger ingredients, minus oats, into a food processor and process until smooth. Transfer ingredients to a large bowl and stir in oats. Form into patties and cook in a sprayed skillet until both sides are brown. Serve on buns with your desired garnishes. Enjoy!


Sweet Potato Cauliflower Mashed Potato Ingredients (Original Recipe!)

1 head of cauliflower, rinsed and chopped

Steam sweet potato and cauliflower (I use a steaming basket) until vegetables are soft. Transfer veggies to a food processor. Add butter and milk to processor. Process until potatoes are smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
