Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

I have been looking for homemade veggie burgers recipes.  These sweet potato veggie burgers are not my own recipe. However,  I make it a lot so I wanted to share it with you.  I found it on vegweb.  I made a few changes to the original recipe.


These sweet potato veggie burgers are easy to make, freeze well and a much better alternative to store bought versions.  I will typically make a double batch so I can freeze a bunch.  Then when you have a busy night with no time to cook dinner, you can whip these out, reheat and serve. Super easy.

They are sweet so kids will like them too.  I add avocado to the top of mine because avocados make everything better!  These would go great with my Healthy French Fries.

We filmed a little video for this recipe.  You can view below. For more videos, you can subscribe to my You Tube Channel.

Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

Prep Time 30 min Cook Time 30 min


  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and chopped
  • 1-1 1/2 cups gluten free rolled oats (depending on the size of your sweet potato)
  • 2 green onions chopped fine
  • 1 T fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 T nutritional yeast optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Boil the sweet potato until tender.
  3. Mash the cooked sweet potato. 
  4. Add the oats and stir in the seasonings.  I used my kitchen aid mixer to stir it well. 
  5. Form the mixture into patties. 
  6. Line or grease a baking sheet with a bit of oil and put the patties on it.  I use a Mr Misto oil sprayer to grease the pan.  Works like PAM , but much healthier because you can fill it with whichever oil you choose.  No chemicals.
  7. Place in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the burgers are a bit crispy on the outside.  Enjoy!

  1. Hi, I was wondering what you eat with this? As in do you have a bun with it or do you eat this as is? Thanks so much.
    1. I usually eat a couple patties in one sitting. No bun. I just top them with a little veganaise and avocado. I usually do add a side of veggies as well.
  2. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! Nothing makes me happier than making a healthy meal for my family that they actually eat and enjoy!!!! I wish I had doubled the recipe because I want more right now, lol! :) And I have your fries in the oven as I type...Since this was my first time making both, my timing was off. So we ate the burgers and are now waiting on the fries. :) Thanks again! (
  3. As a sweet potato lover, I am excited to try this recipe. I never thought of sweet potatoes as a base for a veggie burger. I think I might try it with cooked quinoa, one of my favorite proteins. Thanks so much for adding a new recipe to my recipe box!
  4. I am just finding out about U, after stocking up on MSF, BOGO sale the other day! So please add me to your email list for future recipes until your book comes out.
    1. Thank you! I often eat them without the buns. I spread a little avocado on top. Delish! They would be great on buns or in lettuce wraps as well.
  5. Thanks for sharing. I tried this recipe last night and enjoyed them. I got five, two ounce burgers from one medium sweet potato and 1 cup oatmeal. I did post a review and a picture on my blog, http://adlinsadventures.blogspot.com/2015/06/recipe-roundup.html
