  • Author: Audra


Makes 8 evenly sized patties



For the Sweet Potatoes Veggie Burgers

  • 1 1/2 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes (23 sweet potatoes)
  • 1/2 cup canned black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 cup, cooked quinoa (I cook mine in veggie broth for added flavor)
  • 1/2 cup oat flour, click here to make your own
  • 1/3 cup sweet frozen corn
  • 2 green onions, including the green parts, finely chopped
  • 2 TBS red bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 TBS cilantro, finely chopped
  • *1/4 tsp chipotle chili powder (may add more to taste, see bottom note)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • pepper to taste
  • olive oil

For the Cilantro Lime Sour Cream

  • 8 oz light sour cream
  • juice of 1 small lime, or to taste
  • zest 1 lime
  • 1 heaping TBS chopped cilantro (add more if you like)
  • 1/4 cumin
  • 1/2 chili powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Scrub, rinse, and pierce the sweet potatoes with a fork several times all over the potato. 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.
  2. In a large bowl and add all your beautiful and fresh ingredients, except oil.
  3. 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.
  4. Now, heat olive oil (about 1 1/2 TBSP) evenly in a 10 inch iron or a non stick skillet over medium to medium high heat.
  5. With a spatula remove the sweet potato burgers from the wax paper and gently place them in the skillet.
  6. 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.
  7. Now you are ready to serve your veggie burgers. Present on a bun or serve bunless, either way is a delicious choice.

For the Cilantro Lime Sour Cream

  1. Mix all ingredients and dollop over a veggie burger patty!


*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.
