Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

I love veggie burgers.  Who doesn’t right?  Well store bought veggie burgers don’t cut it for me.  The rubbery texture and unidentifiable ingredients in store bought veggie burgers are enough to turn me off.  You can get so much more flavor and texture from homemade veggie burgers.  These sweet potato black bean burgers are a spin off my Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers.  If you have made those burgers, you will love these too!

Sweet Potato Black Bean Burgers

I like to make sweet potato black bean burgers because they are easy and very budget friendly.  The other day I had some leftover black beans I wanted to use as well, so I decided to combine the two and create a whole new recipe.  These came out great.  Sweet potato and black beans go very well together.

Store these burgers in the fridge for a couple weeks. You can freeze them for longer. I cook them and then freeze them all the time.

  1. Made these today and they were awesome, only patty I've made so far that didn't fall apart! I microwaved the sweet potato, mashed it and mashed the beans...I always make sure beans are very dry. I'm vegan so I used flax egg, topped them with vegan cheese, homemade relish, guacamole, sriracha and bean sprouts....oh so good!!
  2. Hello from the UK Melissa! I've only very recently discovered your blog and have just made these burgers - they were delicious, and so quick and simple to make (which is very important to me!) - thank you so much! Even my normally fussy 5 year old loved them. I read the section on "convincing the kids" and it's exactly what I'm trying to do with my son. We're slowly getting there, it just takes some perseverance and persuasion, but I'm determined not to have him growing up addicted to sugar and processed food. Thanks again for a wonderful blog and I'm looking forward to trying out more of your recipes.
  3. t I am not a vegan, but I am just trying to eat more whole foods. This might be a silly question, but what do you eat these burgers with? Do you all put them on a whole wheat bun or eat them without bread?
    1. I eat mine by themselves with a little avocado and a side of roasted veggies. You can also put them on top of salad, or eat them with a bun like a regular burger
      1. Grams and cup are completely unrelated. Grams are mass; cups are volume. A cup is 240 mL a teaspoon is 5 mL). I've always been trying to figure out how people measure out grams in cooking. Do you use a scale to measure the mass?
  4. Hey! Made this for dinner tonight, and they are baking right now! They smell and taste great so far, and I can't wait to have some for lunch tomorrow! I made some changes, and I was wondering if I could post my version of this on my blog, giving you credit and linking back to you. I love your blog btw, it's a new one added to my reading list! :)
  5. I made these tonight and everyone in my family loved them. They were great!!! I will definitely be adding these to my rotation for dinner. Thanks.
    1. It's an egg replacement made from flax. https://mywholefoodlife.com/advice/how-to-make-a-flax-egg/ you can also use real egg if you like.
  6. Can you explain the need for nutritional yeast in this recipe? Can it be omitted and/or is there an alternative to this ingredient? I've been a follower for years - keep up the great work! It's my go-to blog for easy vegan cooking. :) Brittany
    1. Hi Brittany! Thank you for the kind words. The nutritional yeast adds a nutty and cheesy flavor + B vitamins. You can totally omit it if you like. I have had a lot of readers do that no problem. :)
