White Bean and Sweet Potato Burgers

These are the most delicious, juicy, tender veggie burgers you'd ever have! Serve them in your preferred buns with toppings of your choice. I like to keep my burgers simple so I just add vegan mayo, mustard, ketchup, lettuce, tomato and onion and of course I sprinkle them with salt and pepper for additional flavor!

any kind of flour would work. I usually use soy or chickpeas flour in order to add more protein

These look great...I would also love to know a soy flour sub.

Thanks for sharing this great recipe. I love regular patties with lots of fat and so meaty. But somehow, I also love to have something great for my health. I usually have tempeh patties for my burger buns. I have no idea how this sweet potato patties would work on. Just hope this will work well to my taste. How to Make Sweet Potato Fries
