White Bean & Sweet Potato Burgers


Ah, there are going to be a big hit for the summer!

I saw a similar recipe for these burgers on Vegetarian Portland’s Facebook and was instantly intruguied. I’ve done Sweet Potato & Kale Burgers before and they didn;t hold together well, so I figured these ones would meet the same fate. To my surprise, they held their form VERY well and I seriously woke Jim up from a nap to gleefully showcase what I had created in the midst of cooking the first batch. The total cost of this recipe is about $4 and they made a whopping 12 bugers. 30 cents a meal? Sign me up!

Oh, and we made homemade burger buns because we didn’t have any in stock. I followed this recipe and they were kinda dense, but really quick and easy if you find yourself in the same predicament.

4 cups white beans, cooked

1 large sweet potato, cubed and boiled

1 cup yellow onion, chopped

2/3 cup breadcrumbs

1/4 cup nutritonal yeast

1/4 cup whole wheat flour, plus more for dusting

3 tbsp olive oil, dividied, plus more for frying

1 tsp sea salt

  • Remove from heat and add onion.bean mix to food processor
  • Also add in sweet potatoes and 1 1/2 tbsp oil and pule a few times so the mix is a little pureed, but still kind of chunky
