Step 1In a large bowl, toss sweet potato with oil, chili powder, Italian seasoning and cayenne. Spread onto parchment paper lined baking sheet. Roast in 400 F (200 C) oven for 20 minutes. Add black beans and 1 tbsp (15 mL) cilantro and stir together. Return to oven for 5 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
Step 2Scrape into bowl and using potato masher, mash until fairly smooth. Stir in egg, oats, green onion (if using) and remaining cilantro. Shape into 4 patties about 1 inch (2.5 cm) thick.
Step 3Lightly spray grill and patties with cooking spray. Heat to medium heat and grill patties, turning once for about 6 minutes or until heated through and grill marked.
How to toast oats: In a dry non-stick skillet, toast oats over medium heat, stirring frequently for about 5 minutes or until light golden and fragrant. Let cool before using. Great to add flavour when added oats to meatloaves and burgers.
