These are my absolute favorites. They taste so good and unlike most veggie burgers, they don’t just fall apart in your bun as soon as you take your first bite.

Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers
makes 7-8 large patties
2 cups garbanzo beans (or substitute any beans you have around)
1 cup black beans (once again, you can substitute whatever beans you have)
1 large sweet potato – baked, peeled, and mashed (about 2 cups)
2 Tbsp tahini
2 tsp maple or agave syrup
1 tsp chipotle
1/4 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup nutritional yeast
A few dashes of cayenne
A few dashes of salt and pepper
plentiful bread crumbs
olive oil for pan
toppings: avocado, Dijon mustard, lettuce, tomato, pepper, A1 sauce
Bake, peel, and mash sweet potato and then place in a large mixing bowl. Drain beans, add to bowl, and mash it all together.
Mix in all of the seasoning and if needed adjust the mixture with flour or breadcrumbs. It should be moist but you should be able to form a patty.
Heat a bit of olive oil in a skillet while you make patties. Put your breadcrumbs in a bowl and coat each patty with a thick layer of crumbs. Cook until golden brown on both sides.
I’ve even gotten my awesome future brother-in-law hooked on these!
