Sweet Potato Beet Burgers

Sweet Potato Beet Burgers

These gorgeous sweet potato beet burger patties are quick, easy and tremendously delicious! Juicy, sweet beets and creamy sweet potatoes mixed with onions, bread crumbs and earthy spices. All flavourful, simple and easy-to-find ingredients. The result is a real crowd-pleaser, hearty, and a very yummy burger. Beets provide loads of antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and detox properties. Sweet potatoes are one of the richest foods in beta-carotene, which get converted into vitamin A by our cells.

I boiled both the beets and sweet potatoes in this version but my preference is always to bake the veggies in the oven until tender and then mash them. The baking intensifies the flavours and definitely knocks the burgers up a notch. If you have the time, try the baking version and judge for yourself. I also save the beet pulp from my juicer and use it in these patties, they taste awesome and limits waste.

I prefer to eat these without a bun but they taste just as delicious in a bun loaded with all your favourite dressings and condiments! Even our friends who only eat meat burgers, loved these vegan ones.

This is a very easy recipe. Cook the beets and sweet potatoes, mash and combine them with the remaining ingredients, cook and enjoy! This is a quick, easy and nutritious dinner not to mention, a great meal prep recipe. I make a big batch and store them in the freezer to use on those evenings where time is at a premium and nutrition is a priority.
