Add the peeled and chopped sweet potato, black beans and 1 cup of cooked quinoa to a food processor.
Pulse until everything is well blended.
This is what you should have.
Add the red onion, garlic, jalapeno and cilantro.
Followed by all the spices - cumin, cayenne pepper, and salt. Mix well until well combined.
And breadcrumbs. Mix well.
Split the patty mixture evenly into 4-6 sections.
I made 4 thick patties, however you can also make 6 thinner patties. My husband prefers thinner patties, just fyi.
Heat up a castiron skillet on medium. Once hot, spray avocado oil or any high heat oil. Place the patty on the skillet. Spray the top of the patty with avocado oil as well.
Cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side to your liking. I prefer a slightly crunch on my patties.
