Sweet Potato & Brown Rice Burgers

Sweet Potato & Brown Rice Burgers
1 sweet potato, peeled & cubed
1 C. brown rice
2 C. vegetable broth
2 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno, seeded & diced
1/4 C. tahini
1 tsp. honey
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper
1/2 C. wheat flour
Olive oil
Buns & your favorite toppings (bbq sauce is perfect for these!)

1. Bring rice, broth, garlic and jalapeno to a boil in a small pot, cover, reduce heat to low and let simmer until rice is cooked (40-50 minutes).
2. While rice is cooking boil the sweet potatoes in a separate pot. Drain and mash in a mixing bowl. 
3. Once rice is cooked put 3/4 of the mixture in a food processor with the tahini and blend until decently smooth. Pour all remaining ingredients, except olive oil, in the mixing bowl with the sweet potatoes and mix until well blended.
4. Heat a large skillet on medium heat and drizzle with olive oil. Once the pan is hot spoon the mixture into the pan and form 8 burgers. Cook until brown on both sides, about 5 minutes on each side, and let sit on a plate lined with paper towels for a minute or two before serving with your favorite toppings.

-Serves 8.
