Ingredients

Fries:
4 medium sweet potatoes (about 1 1/2 lb.), peeled, cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch-wide wedges
1/4 cup canola oil
1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Salt and pepper
Burgers:
1/2 cup canned black beans (rinse and drain before measuring)
1 pound lean ground sirloin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 romaine lettuce leaves
4 slices tomato
4 English muffins, halved horizontally

Preparation

1. Make fries: Preheat oven to 425°F. Line a large baking pan with foil; mist foil with cooking spray. In a large bowl, toss sweet potatoes with oil, sugar, cumin, cayenne, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper.

2. Set potatoes in a single layer on baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned around edges, about 15 minutes. Turn potatoes; bake until softened and browned, about 20 minutes longer. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper.

3. Make burgers: Preheat broiler to high or grill to medium. Line a broiling pan with foil and mist with cooking spray.

4. Pulse beans with 2 Tbsp. water in a food processor until blended. Transfer to a bowl; add sirloin, salt and pepper. Gently blend and shape into four round, flat patties.

5. Broil or grill burgers until a meat thermometer registers 160°F, about 5 minutes per side. Serve burgers with lettuce and tomato on toasted English muffins, with fries on the side. Offer ketchup, mustard and other condiments, if desired.
