Hello, everyone! I am back today to share my recipe for yummy Sweet Potato and Black Bean Veggie Burgers. This is the fun recipe I promised in my post on how to make oat flour. If you missed How to Make Oat Flour, click here to check out how easy it can be done. These veggie burgers are so good and full of flavor. They are a scrumptious, vegetarian alternative to the original hamburger that will have your mouth watering. Present your veggie burger on a bun or serve bunless, either way is a delicious choice. Oh, and don’t forget to dollop Cilantro Lime Sour Cream on top of your veggie burgers for an extra wow! I have wanted to share this recipe with you for quite sometime and finally got around to it. This is definitely a family favorite. I know you are ready for the recipe so let’s get cooking…
Sweet Potato & Black Bean Veggie Burger
Scrub, rinse, and pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork several times all over the potatoes. Bake sweet potatoes at 350 degrees on a baking sheet lined with foil. Cook potatoes until fork tender. After potatoes cool, peel skin and mash with fork.
In a large bowl add all your beautiful and fresh ingredients, except oil.
With a large spoon mix all ingredients together until all combined. Once all ingredients are mixed, mold 8 evenly sized veggie patties and place on wax paper for easy removal.
Now, heat olive oil evenly in a 10 inch iron or a non stick skillet over medium to medium high heat. With a spatula remove the sweet potato burgers from the wax paper and gently place them in the skillet.
Once browned on bottom, flip over with a spatula. Adjust heat and add more oil as needed between batches. Cook until both sides have browned.
Now you are ready to serve your veggie burgers, don’t forget the Cilantro Lime Sour Cream! MmmMmm…

*Tip – Chipotle chili powder has a little kick to it, medium heat. You may add more to taste for added spice. Regular chili powder (1 tsp or to taste) can be substituted in place of chipotle chili powder. Another great addition to this mixture is chopped jalapenos.
These patties also freeze well after they have been cooked. Lay a piece of wax paper between patties when freezing. Then store in a freezable container.

Yum, Audra! These burgers look amazing. Even the meat-lovers in my family would probably like them! :)
Thank you, Blair! And thanks for stopping by to check out the recipe :)
Hi Audra! These look delicious! The only thing is I’m not a big cilantro fan. Is there something else I could substitute that might taste as good? Thanks!
You can try to substitute Italian parsley or celery leaves for cilantro. Of courses you may get a bit of difference in taste, but if you are not a big fan of cilantro these might work for you! Thanks for stopping by :)

These look delicious! Do you know if these burgers can bake in the oven instead of on the stove? Also, do they freeze/reheat well? Thanks!
I also would like to know if these can be grilled?
OMG loved these!! Your recipe was easy to follow and was so yummy. Just the right balance of ingredients. Thanks. I was veggie burger shy after my first epic fail. These have restored my confidence in making my own veggie burgers. Thanks so much!

Hi, I’m excited with this recipe, can you use alternate flour?
Hi, We’ve never made the recipe with a different type of flour before, but I’m sure you could substitute it. You might want to look up the best way to convert from oat flour to whatever type you would like to use as the quantity might be slightly different.
These are great! Just made some and using for lunches this week. Do you have the nutrition facts by chance?
I made these tonight… so delicious!! For the cream sauce, I tried a slightly healthier option and substituted the sour cream for Greek yogurt, and mashed a little avocado into it! Thank you for the recipe!! Look forward to more!
Can these burgers be grilled?
