Sweet Potato and Black Bean Turkey Burgers with Sriracha-Lime Crema
Because I can't get over how awesome black bean and sweet potato taste in a burger I'm dedicating another week to this combo. This time with a little kick of sriracha sauce and turkey! Recipe adapted from Domesticate-Me.
2 cups sweet potatoes, cut into ½-inch cubes (about 1 medium sweet potato)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
1¼ pounds ground turkey breast
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
½ teaspoon salt
For Sriracha-Lime Crema:
2/3 cup fat-free sour cream
1 lime, juiced
2 teaspoons Sriracha
Salt to taste
In a small bowl, whisk together the sour cream, lime juice and Sriracha. Taste and season with salt. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Step 1: Pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees. Place cubed sweet potatoes on a baking sheet lined with foil or parchment. Drizzle with olive oil and toss to coat. Bake your sweet potatoes for 20 minutes, stirring halfway through, until they’re tender.
Step 2: Combine sweet potatoes and black beans in a food processor or blender. Then place the sweet potato and bean mixture in a large bowl with the ground turkey, garlic, cilantro, cumin, paprika, and salt. Use your hands to mix the ingredients until just combined. Refrigerate the mixture for 20 minutes.
Step 3: With damp hands, mold it into 6 patties. Then bake it for 23 minutes until thoroughly cooked.
Step 4: Assemble the burger with desire ingredients and drizzle some of the crema sauce on the patty!
