You Will Need
First, steam the sweet potato. [The quick method: stick it in the microwave for 8 minutes. The slow method: wrap it in tin foil and bake in the oven at 450 F for about 40 minutes] While the sweet potato is cooking, pour extra virgin olive oil onto a pan and heat it to medium heat. Add the celery, onion, and bell pepper. Cook until soft, about 10-12 minutes.
Add the flax seed, chia seed, sunflower seeds, oats, and seasonings to a food processor and blend. You want it a little choppy, but well blended. Transfer to a bowl. When the sweet potato is ready, scoop the 'meat' into the food processor with the black beans and garlic. Once blended, add the vegetables and egg, and blend some more. Finally, add the oat mixture and pulse until just combined. Using a spoon [or your hands] form into small patties, about 2 in. across [recipe makes about 10 of these]. Add another tbsp. of olive oil to the pan on medium heat and cook each patty for about 4 minutes on each side.
For the avocado dip: mix all the ingredients together until smooth. Serve on top of the black bean patties.
