A couple weeks ago I made Stacy’s Gluten Free Chili Sweet Potato Tots, which you can see on my Instagram. Her recipe inspired me to use sweet potatoes as a base for making my own grain-free veggie burgers. Now, don’t get me wrong, I am a meat eater and I love organic, grass-fed beef burgers, but I also LOVE vegetables! And I am also a fan of finding creative ways to get my boys to eat more vegetables (they do pretty well, but are definitely pickier than me).
These Root Veggie Burgers make a great main course or side dish, depending on your nutritional needs and preferences. They are perfect on top of salads, in a bun or simply eaten alone. Really, you cannot go wrong with a pink-colored, sweet potato filled burger; that is, unless you do not like sweet potato!
This recipe makes approximately 8, 3-inch diameter burgers.
*This recipe makes approximately 8, 3-inch diameter burgers. Thick patties will hold together better than thin ones, so I recommend making them about 1/2″ thick.
