I can’t seem to get enough of sweet potatoes, so it was only natural to try incorporating them into my next veggie burger. The sweet potato is a nutritional powerhouse. It contains high levels of vitamins B6, C, and D, potassium magnesium, and antioxidants including carotenoids, making it effective in supporting the immune system, regulating the heart beat and nerve signals, producing white blood cells, reducing stress, and maintaining skin’s youthful elasticity.

This recipe scores high with taste and consistency and is easy on the waistline. It’s 100 percent vegan but still has the density and punch of a regular burger. You can serve it in a whole wheat bun or just eat it atop lettuce leaves with your choice of condiments.

Sweet Potato Burger

3-4 patties

Ingredients

  • 1 sweet potato, baked and peeled
  • 1 can of white beans, drained and rinsed (or fresh cooked beans if you’re off the cans)
  • 2 tablespoons diced red onion
  • 1 handful of parsley, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 3-4 tablespoons safflower, canola or light olive oil for frying

Directions

Toss all ingredients in a large bowl and mash with the back of a fork until the white beans have broken down and everything is evenly combined.

Shape 3-4 patties. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, add about three tablespoons of oil. Place each patty into the pan. They should make a sizzling sound. Let cook 2-3 minutes on both sides until browned.

Serve in a bun or over lettuce leaves.

Enjoy!
