|Curried Sweet Potato, Peanut & Black Bean Burgers|
Firstly, I want to thank you guys so much for your support on my first affiliate partnership announcement. I am seriously obsessed with Thrive Market, and I hope you guys love it too! Going forward, I'll share a link to any Thrive ingredients used in the recipe. Let me know if you like this.
Ok, onto the main show!
I have a deep and abiding love for veggie burgers. Not the patty, specifically, though that's incredibly important. My veggie burger obsession stems from the all-encompassing experience: patty, bun, fixings and sides. When all of these align, there's little more satisfying than a honkin' bite of veggie-burger goodness (can I get a witness?!).
To that effect, I spend a of time dreaming of and creating veggie burger combos. In my cookbook, coming out in late-May(!), I have a recipe for Wild Rice, Lentil & Pecan Burgers that is absolutely dynamite. However, I've made them so many times over the last 9 months, and I had a hankering for a different flavor profile.
Welcome into the LL Balanced kitchen, Curried Sweet Potato & Black Bean Burgers! A mishmash of some of my all-time favorite whole foods and ingredients, these burgers are comforting and satisfying, but just exotic enough to keep my taste buds dancin'. I am unshakably convinced that adding sweet potatoes and/or peanut butter to anything makes it better, and both pair beautifully with curry powder.
Black beans, almond flour and oats all provide texture, protein and fiber, and the result is a sturdy burger that won't fall apart as you dig in. As much as I love the patties solo (and I do, dipped in ketchup, as a snack), they're next level on a bun with my Sesame Tahini Sauce. I also add shaved carrot, mashed avocado, bibb lettuce and toasted sesame seeds....*wipes drool*.
If you share my veggie burger fever, you have to give this recipe a try! Also it has a few steps, it's actually quite an easy recipe, and most ingredients are pantry staples. If you make them, I'd love to see a picture of how you prefer to experience your VB's!
