Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

This recipe is one that takes a little over an hour to make so I made this on a sunday evening when I had some free time! I usually don’t crave burgers that often but for some reason I was craving a nice juicy burger. Well what does one do on a vegan regimen? Use sweet potatoes! Yes, sweet potatoes can make a fabulous patty for those two buns. Here is a fun recipe for those sweet potato and burger lovers!

sweet potato veggie

makes 7-8 large patties

Ingredients:

2 cans cannellini white beans, drained
1 large sweet potato, baked/peeled/mashed (about 2 cups)
2 tsp maple or agave syrup
1 tsp lemon pepper seasoning OR Cajun seasoning (or another fave spice!)
1/4 cup wheat flour
optional: additional seasoning (whatever you have on hand – I used a few dashes cayenne, black pepper and a scoop of nutritional yeast)
salt to taste if needed

plentiful bread crumbs
safflower oil for pan

burgers: avocado, Dijon mustard, grain buns, romaine, onion, olive oil, pepper

Directions:

1. Bake sweet potato at 375 for about an hour. Peel, place in large mixing bowl.
2. Add drained beans to mixing bowl. Mash beans and potato together.
3. Mash in seasoning, flour and any additional seasoning. Your mixture will be quite soft and moist. But you should be able to form a patty. Add more flour or a scoop of breadcrumbs – or dry rice to thicken the mixture if needed.
5. Form a patty from mixture and coat in any kind of bread crumb. Thick coating. Then drop the patty in the pan. Repeat until the pan is filled. Cook until browned on both sides. You could also bake. If baking, use less Panko.
6. Transfer cooked patties to paper towel. Cool for a few minutes.
7. Serve on toasted bun with lotsa toppings.
