But we’re not here to talk holidays, we’re here to talk burgers. More specifically, these Vegan Black Bean Sweet Potato Burgers. Another recipe update courtesy of our 2012 selves. And the perfect item to store away in your freezer when you need a quickie meal in between all the holiday prep and partying.
We love a good burger – the one where the juice run downs your arm in the best way possible. These are not that kind of burger. So if you are craving a good ‘ol meaty burger, then by all means, eat a good ‘ol meaty burger. In fact, we’ve got a recipe for you right here. These are for the other times, when you are jonesing for something a wee bit different.
We know they sound a little different – there’s almond butter, in a burger. Friends – trust. The almond butter acts as the fat and binder for these patties, holding all the delicious sweet potatoes in place. And along with the mashed beans, give them the satisfying texture you desire from a good burger.
They are perfect on a bun, over a salad, or done up Mexican style with some guac and salsa. Also a great recipe for getting those little hands into the kitchen – 2-4 year olds make excellent bean mashers. (warning: you may end up with some beans and sweet potatoes on your floor).
Stock up your freezer with a double batch of these Vegan Black Bean Sweet Potato Burgers. Your future self will thank you!
