  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 2 Tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp. ground coriander
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 cup diced onion (1/2 a med/large onion)
  • 1 cup corn kernels frozen or canned variety
  • 1 1/2 cups black beans, drained and rinsed (1 15 oz. can beans)
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato from baked, steamed, or microwaved
  • 1 cup fresh cilantro or parsley or combo of both coarsely chopped


  1. To a food processor, add the almonds, cumin, coriander, chili powder, salt, and pepper.

    Grind in the processor until it is a coarse meal. Put the mixture into a large mixing bowl.

  2. Return the processor bowl to the base (no need to wash).

    Coarsely chop your carrot and put it in the processor. Add the diced onion and the corn.

    Pulse the ingredients until they are very finely diced. Add to the mixing bowl with the almond/spice mixture.

  3. To the food processor again, add the rinsed and drained beans and the coarsely chopped cilantro or parsley.

    Pulse until it is a coarse consistency. DO NOT blend until it is a paste! You want to have some texture.

    Add this to the bowl, along with the mashed sweet potato.

    Mix all the ingredients thoroughly until everything is evenly incorporated.

  4. Preheat your oven to 375 F degrees.

    Use a 1/4 cup measuring cup to scoop out the mixture and form into patties.

    Place all your patties on a lined baking sheet (parchment paper or silicone baking mat). My baking sheet fit 6 patties, so if you are making 8 patties, you will need two baking sheets or work in two batches.

    Bake at 375 F for 35-40 minutes.

    When the patties are done baking, let them rest for at least 5 minutes before using a spatula to transfer them to your burger bun or plate.

    To freeze for later, place a piece of parchment, wax paper, or plastic wrap in-between each patty in an airtight container. They will be good for up to 2 months or even longer.
