Sweet Potato and Black Bean "Hamburgers"

Sweet Potato and Black Bean Patties
Yields 6 small patties

1/4 of a bell pepper, chopped
1/6 of an onion, chopped
1/2 of a celery stalk, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped
3 minced garlic cloves
dash of each: cumin/chili powder/paprika/granulated garlic/salt/pepper
1 can of black beans, drained
1/2 of a steamed sweet potato
1 tablespoon flax seed meal
2 tablespoons sunflower seeds

Saute the bell pepper, onion, celery, carrot and garlic until they begin to soften. In a food processor, add the veggies, along with all of the seasonings, and pulse until the pieces are very small. Add the remaining ingredients and only pulse 5 times, until the pieces are chunky...not a paste! Form into 6 patties, and then cook in a skillet for 2 minutes on each side.
