Spicy Black Bean Patties

The original recipe called for sweet potato but I opted to use butternut squash as it is currently zero WW points. I encourage you to play with the spices to flavor as you like.

I’m not positive I’ll be able to keep hanging it this way as it is tilting a little.  I may have to get more chain and create a “basket” for it to sit in (2 longer pieces of chain that will make an X underneath and come up to the top and gather in a carabiner).  But it’s pretty cute.
