Sweet Potato Burger

Skinny Sweet Potato Burgers
Original recipe from

1 Sweet Potato
1/4 Cup Bell Pepper finely diced
1 Green Onion
1/2 Cup Frozen Spinach (thawed)
1 Can Garbanzo beans (drained and rinsed)
1 Egg white
1/4 Cup Panko Italian Bread Crumbs
1/4 Cup Parmesan Cheese
Salt, Pepper, Garlic Powder to taste

1. Preheat oven to 400. Clean and skin sweet potato. Pierce a few times with fork to allow for air flow. Microwave for 5-7 minutes or until it can easily be mashed with a fork.
2. Mash sweet potato in a medium size bowl. 
3. Combine everything with sweet potatoes in the bowl.  Smash garbanzo beans with fork against side of the bowl. The more mashed they are, the smoother the texture. 
4. Form mixture into the size of patties. Place on pan and put in the fridge for 15-20 minutes to firm. 
5. Place pan in oven and cook 15-20 minutes, flipping half way through until the burger is golden brown. 

Serve just as is, on top of a whole grain bun, in a lettuce wrap, or on top a salad!
