Sweet Potato-Bean Patties

This is burger season and I find that most store bought veggie burgers are too salty and full of processed ingredients. I found a recipe for sweet potato and bean patties that looked promising but I altered it considerably. I think this recipe is quite versatile and substitutions would work well.

2 cups mashed, cooked sweet potato (1very large or 2 medium potatoes)
2 cups mashed white beans like white kidney beans
1 eggs
1/2 cup oat bran (could use bread crumbs or another flour as a binder)
2 large garlic cloves, minced (or use garlic or onion powder)
1/3 cup hulled hemp seeds (optional)
1 tsp salt
dash or two of cayenne pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp dried oregano

Mix all ingredients together and mix well. The mixture is quite sticky and you can make the patties with your hands or scoop it with a spoon into the frying pan.

Put a couple of tablespoons of oil in a large frying pan and heat the pan until it is hot. Add patties and cook for a couple of minutes on each side until browned nicely. Serve with a salad or in a bun with toppings.

Here is the recipe I based this on.
