White Bean & Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers
Serves: 10-12 patties
  • 3 cups (2 cans) white beans (northern or cannellini), drained and rinsed
  • 2 cups mashed (1 large or 2 medium) sweet potato, baked/peeled/mashed
  • ¼ cup flax seed meal
  • 2 tablespoons tahini (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon favorite spice (lemon pepper, cajun, southwest)
  • 1 teaspoon salt/pepper
  • 3-4 cups of panko breadcrumbs
  • Olive or Safflower oil (if you fry in pan)
Dijon Dressing
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • salt/pepper, to taste
For the Burgers:
  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cooked & peeled sweet potatoes and drained beans. Mash beans and potato together until it is a rough texture. Add in flax seed, tahini, and spices. Mix until combined.
  2. Form ⅓ to ¼ cup sized patties from mixture. Heavily coat patties in Panko crumbs.
  3. Heat large skillet (I used cast iron) with about ¼ inch of oil on high heat. Once heated, drop the patties in the pan. Cook until brown on both sides. *You could also bake. If baking, use less Panko. If pan-frying, heat another tbsp oil before the next batch.
  4. Transfer cooked patties to a dish lined with a paper towel. Cool for a few minutes before serving.
  5. Serve on bed of lettuce or toasted bun with lots of toppings, like mayonnaise, sriracha, tomato, red onion, and avocado!
  6. Baking Instructions: Heat oven to 350 degrees and cook about 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
For the Dijon Dressing:
  1. In a medium bowl, blend together the dijon mustard, olive oil & red wine vinegar.
  2. Drizzle over salad or sandwich.
