Gluten-Free Panko-Crusted Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burgers  

Serves 8

Gluten-Free Panko-Crusted Black Bean and Sweet Potato Burgers  

These burgers have an addictively crispy outside and are soft and chewy inside, with plenty of protein from cooked black beans. You can use commercial gluten-free panko or bread crumbs or make your own by grinding a few pieces of bread in a food processor. You can also replace panko with bought or homemade almond meal. To make it yourself, simply grind whole peeled almonds or almond slivers to a coarse powder.

This makes a big batch of burgers, so freeze any ungrilled patties on plates or baking sheets so they don’t stick together and then transfer them to freezer-safe containers. To cook from frozen,  bake for 30 minutes at 375 F (190 C) then broil for a few minutes on each side to crisp exterior.

Each patty contains: 128 calories; 7 g protein;
1 g total fat (0 g sat. fat, 0 g trans fat); 28 g total carbohydrates
