Homemade Sweet Potato Burgers – a delicious and healthy plant-based meal that is packed with protein!
With Memorial Day coming up tomorrow, these hearty sweet potato burgers could not come at a more perfect time!
I chose to top mine with sliced avocado, butter lettuce, and homemade ketchup, with a side of my favorite Crispy Oven Baked Fries.
However, the veggie sweet potato burgers are also really good without any toppings at all… or even eaten like fritters without a bun or crumbled into a salad for a lighter option.
These sweet potato burgers by Kathy Patalsky are one of over 220 enticing recipes in her new cookbook, Healthy Happy Vegan Kitchen. Kathy’s cookbook has everything covered, from appetizers to salads to the main event.
Being a sweet potato lover, I had to go for these burgers first, and the sweet potato burgers do not disappoint.
Don’t have sweet potato? Try this Veggie Burger Recipe
The book is a great source of meatless meal inspiration not just for vegans, but also for omnivores looking to incorporate more plant-based recipes into their weekly rotation.
You don’t need to be 100% vegan to enjoy recipes such as Lasagna Verde, Veggie Pot Pie, or Mushroom Fajita Tacos.
Make the sweet potato burgers for yourself to see just how delicious a meatless meal can be.
The burgers can be gluten-free, soy-free, sugar-free, egg-free, and obviously vegan; but meat eaters seem to love these homemade veggie burgers too.
If your idea of a veggie burger is one of those hard and tasteless patties you microwave from a box, you absolutely need to try Kathy’s sweet potato burgers.
They will forever change the way you think of veggie burgers!
Sweet Potato Burgers
- 1 medium sweet potato
- 1 1/2 cups drained and rinsed canned cannelini beans
- 2-3 tbsp oat or wheat flour
- 1 tbsp tahini or nut butter, softened
- 1 tsp pure maple syrup, or pinch stevia for sugar-free
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder or spice blend
- salt, pepper, optional cayenne or other spices
- optional 1-2 tbsp nutritional yeast
- If frying: 1-3 tsp vegetable or coconut oil
- optional 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs or 1/4 cup cooked brown rice
- toppings of choice
- Preheat oven to 400 F. Pole a few holes in the potato using a fork. Bake until sticky-sweet and very tender, about 1 hr. Remove skin and place the potato’s flesh in a large bowl. Add beans, flour, tahini, maple syrup, spices, and seasonings to the bowl, and use a fork to mash. Cover and refrigerate until the mixture is firm enough to easily handle (15-20 minutes). The mixture will be soft and moist, so add the extra flour as needed (or fold in 1/4 cup to 1/2 cup breadcrumbs) until you can form patties. *If frying:* Heat 1 tbsp oil over high heat in a sauté pan. Form 5 patties and coat them with the breadcrumbs, then place in the hot pan and cook 2-3 minutes each side or until browned. Transfer to a paper towel and let cool. *If baking:* Omit the panko coating, and fold in 1/4 cup cooked brown rice for added texture. Bake at 350 F on a greased baking sheet for 20 minutes. Burgers will be lightly browned.View Nutrition Facts

I am loving veggie burgers at the moment! Going to give these a go!
Tiffany H. says
My current favorite is vegan mac and cheese… I use hummus as the sauce. If I’m in the mood for alfredo suace, I leave it plain… If I’m in the mood for a vodka sauce type thing, I add tomato sauce. If I want more cheddary- I add nutritional yeast… I even have a vegan Welsh Rarebit Mac…. Ohhhhhh… Now I’m hungry!!

My favorite meatless meal is soup and bread.
Jenna B says
I have a recipe for black bean vegan veggie burgers that are delicious. These look great as well!
I love sweet potato wedges roasted with Nantucket Secret Spice. I can eat the whole pan!
My favorite sweet potato dish is to first boil potatoes until soft, about 30 minutes. Then u quarter them lengthwise, brush with olive oil and salt and pepper and grill about 20 minutes – yummy!
My favorite meatless meal is Macaroni and Daiya cheese!!
Ashley P says
A vegan mac and cheese!
I really love this recipe and the ingredients you used! As a vegetarian, I am always looking for new and inventive ideas for dinner and this definitely sounds like it would taste great!
I love my home made Roasted Red Pepper, Garlic, and Black Olive Hummus.
Hummus and chips serves for a quick meal. Roasted red pepper hummus is my fav.
I am going to a BYOM barbeque tomorrow… Is there a way to grill these burgers, maybe just to warm if they have already been cooked. Are they sturdy enough to hold up?
Kris k says
Our most regular meatles meal is lentil stew, but I also love Chana masala and three bean tacos
My favorite meatless meal is baked fried eggplant cutlets with spaghetti squash and tomato sauce and a massive side salad!
Linda W says
High protein Baked eggs & oats is my fav! I make multiple servings so I can just pull out what I need, warm it up and enjoy a healthy meal with minimal fuss. (My recipe: egg whites, pumpkin purée, vanilla extract, protein powder, rolled oats, baking soda, psyllium and spices. Yummy!)
Carrie from www.itsdroolworthy.com says
Can’t wait to make these!
Maddie Peltier says
I’m a sucker for a big, [vegan-fied] old-fashioned breakfast. Oat pancakes, sweet potato hash, and tofu scramble make me weak…#teambrunch. Can’t WAIT to try this recipe tonight, even my carnivorous bf loves CCK recipes !
My favorite meatless meal would have to be sweet and sour lentils and rice. But now I’m going to try these burgers and they look like a top five meal easy!!
Baked potatoes and cookies 🙂
My favorite meatless meal is a veggie burger minus the bun. This Sweet Potato burger sounds really good. I need to give this a try.
Favorite meatless meal: too many to choose from, but right now, zucchini noodles with green pesto sauce!
These look amazing. I’m so trying them out today! My favorite meal is sweet and spicy tofu .
I love a vegetable stir fry with Sriracha/maple syrup sauce.
Favorite meatless meal: too many to choose from, but right now, zucchini noodles with green pesto sauce! I’d love to see this recipe on here!
Jessica Eagle says
Thanks for this wonderful giveawayand recipe !!! Yummm…!!!
My favorite meatless meal is definitely a huge salad full of fresh greens, differents veggie and some marinated & grilled piece of tofu or tempeh with a homemade dressing. During cold weather, a soup full of veggie is a real confort food and a treat for me.
So many options to choose from!! I nice BBQ veggie burger is always a win – especially in the summer months 🙂
Claire Elizabeth says
My all time favourite meatless meal right now has got to be southwest quinoa salad. It’s got lime, cilantro, peppers, salsa, black beans, and corn, and more! It’s SO tasty! 🙂
I love making curry veggies and tofu! So good!
Oooh, that is a hard one (as I predominantly eat meatless). I would have to say daal (Pakistani/Indian lentils) with roasted vegetables is one of the top, and saag (Pakistani/Indian combination of dark leafy greens [NOT only spinach as spinach =palak]) with marinated tofu or tempeh. Nut butters are also one of my favorite vegan foods (as well as your amazing recipes) 🙂
I LOVE big colourful salads with lots of roasted and raw veggies, fresh herbs and some soya nuts for a bit of protein
i love veggie fajitas!
I just bought this cookbook a couple weeks ago and made these burgers last week! Topped them with salsa and tofuti sour cream and made the leftovers into wraps. The rest of the cookbook
Lisa C says
my fave meatless meal is veggie Mac and cheese or sweet potato fries!
I bought this cookbook and just made these last week–they are phenomenal! I made the leftovers into wraps with salsa and vegan sour cream. The rest of the cookbook is awesome as well– nutrition facts for each recipe. Its currently sitting right next to my CCK cookbook on the kitchen table as my favorites to browse for upcoming meals this week.
It’s really hard to choose a favorite meatless meal when you have been vegetarian for nearly your entire life, like I have because it means that I’m really just choosing my favorite meal in general. However, I think I would probably have to go with tofu and vegetable stirfry over udon noodles currently, though I also absolutely adore pesto pasta and last night I made homemade vegan blintzes for the first time and those were amazing too! So it’s really a hard choice!
My favorite meatless meal lately has been red curry lentils.
My favorite meatless meal is sourdough bread and a bowl of veggie chili or minestrone!
I have to say that I love mushroom stroganoff.
We have a few favorites in our rotation right now…mexican quinoa with black beans and corn, lentil mac n cheese and quinoa veggie burgers!
This looks so yummy! Will definitely try 😉
Although I’m not a vegetarian, a lot of meals just taste better without meat to me, particularly chilli. I never liked it until I tried an amazing veggie version and lost my mind! Would love to have this book for more such ideas.
My favorite vego meal at the moment is home made baked beans, slow cooked with lots of tomatoes and smoky paprika! But these might be the new fave!
mushrooms are my go-to for veg meals…so versatile!
ilana rudnik says
I will have to make these burgers. I am a sweet potato fanatic. 🙂 My favorite veggie meal is your sweet potato chili. I make a huge batch and then freeze the leftovers in single servings so I can enjoy later.
I adore my mother’s curried tofu and spinach stirfry on quinoa!
I think my favourite vegan meal has to be falafels with sweet potato wedges and hummus to dip. Mmm. But a close second is my newfound favourite portable lunch- lentil wrap with smashed avocado as the spread. Sounds strange but it is amazing and I’ve got my mum hooked too! This book looks right up my street.
Warren T says
These look good. I will try them on my kids.
Our favorite meatless meal has got to be your Deep Dish Cookie Pie!!!!!
Your sloppy joes made from beans were good also.
We also like meatless taco salad made from beans.
My kids also like your cauliflower mac n cheese.
I really love veggie pot pies. It’s even better with vegetables than it is with meat
My favorite is sweet potato chili. I eat it at least once a week 🙂
Lentil walnut burgers are my favorite!
Jen E says
These burgers look so good! My favorite vegan meal is pizza!
I recently had falafel for the first time. I had no idea what it was, and thought it was some kind of Middle Eastern kebab dish. I read somewhere that it was fried balls of ground chick peas and thought that’s something I’d like to try. It was so fantastic! One of the best ‘new’ dishes I’ve tried in a long time.
My current favorite meal is portobello and zucchini lasagne from a Robin Robertson cookbook.
Roasted veg lasagne! We buy a big bag of frozen Mediterranean vegetables and use it in the place of mince. Delish! (cookbook looks great)
My favorite meal is a bean veggie burger with avocado slices and French fries, always fries!!! And end it with vegan ice cream!!! My ultimate favorite meal!
Definitely sweet potato fries
Robyn Lynch says
My favourite vegan meal is Zucchini Pesto using a spiraleti to give it the look of spaghetti and Epicure Pesto seasoning. Yum!
Tina Pachniak says
My favorite meatless meal- zucchini, black bean and rice skillet- so many yummy flavors!
Hi Katie, these look delicious! My favorite meal right now is a southwestern quinoa casserole from Quinoa 365: The Everyday Superfood with black beans, cilantro, corn etc. If it was favorite dessert it would definitely be chocolate chip cookies
Alexa [fooduzzi.com] says
Mmm…I LOVE this idea! There’s nothing better than that good ol’ sweet potato! Pinned!
these burgers look amazing, I made the turmeric burgers from Kathy yesterday and they were so yummy. I am sure these will taste as good as they look
sue johnston says
I went to a vegan cooking class as I babysit my grandson in another city every week and my daughter and her family are vegan. I have learned a lot and the recipes are very tasty. One of my favorites is the “Quinoa Crusted Tofu Nuggets” with a “Not Your Hidden Valley Ranch” dressing that is made with cashews and garlic olive oil. I am always looking for new recipes to try as I love to cook and I love your website, Katie! Can’t wait to try these burgers at home.
Sandra W says
One of my favorites is lentil loaf, but this burger may join the ranks. It look delicious!
Mmmmmm, these look so good! Can’t wait to try them! I love a good chickpea curry for a nutritious, meatless meal.
Bianca @ Sweet Dreaming says
I love Eggplant Parmesan on spaghetti squash! So good!
This looks great! Right now my favorite meatless meal is your Pumpkin mac n cheese, made with sweet potato. That sauce can go on almost anything! Sooo good!
Moni Zolczer says
Fav meatless meal must be my Mexican inspired quinoa salad made with sweet corn, chopped avocado, cherry tomatoes and tamari 🙂
I really love vegan burgers, but I’m often to lazy or don’t have enough time to make them. But I definitely have to try these! My go-to vegan meal is rice with lentils. I love it.
My favorite meatless meal is stir fried vegetables with brown rice
Favourite veggie meal…. so many, but I love homemade pizzas!
Laura Muska says
I just love all the different veggie burger recipes I’ve tried! With all the wonderful flavors, who could (miss) the meat?!
Ella R. says
I am definitely making those burgers tomorrow…they look so delicious! I have so many delicious vegan favorites that it is impossible to decide. For breakfast, I love all your pancake recipes (I make the Fatcake pancakes nearly every weekend), but I also love a comforting bowl of cereal with almond milk and pb2. My favorite savory meal is vegan mac and cheez, the sauce being made of potatoes, nutritional yeast, veggies, etc. I like it with mung bean fettuccine or whole wheat elbows!
I currently can’t get enough coconut curry! Yum!
Favorite meal is veggie pizza on whole wheat crust with a large salad.
Melody Bold says
My favorite meatless meal is eggplant parmesan the way I make it…no breadcrumbs and topped with whatever veggies I have in my crisper and a can of tomato sauce. My second favorite is lasagne rollups with ricotta cheese and tomato sauce.
My all time favourite meat less meal is my mom´s veggie chilli. It honestly is the most amazing dish ever!
But I also think this burger would be on my top list of vegan foods that meat eaters would love just as much as I do 🙂
It’s tough to just pick one favourite meatless meal….probably black bean burritos. It’s my go -to when I need a quick yet filling dinner.
Katie Goehring says
Favorite meatless meal would be a tie between a good veggie burger and grilled eggplant. It will likely change next week, haha.
Both of my parents are from India, so I’ve been spoiled with delicious vegetarian Indian food for much of my life! My favorite is probably eggplant stuffed with spices and pan roasted–YUM!
Sue Ihlenfeld says
Favorite meatless meal is Tuscan Style Bean Soup. Just venturing into the meatless world and really enjoying it!
Pick me, pick me! Favorite meatless meals = fried eggs (sorry vegans), roasted/baked sweet potatoes, and/or as Mama Pea would have said, Hugh Jass salads.
And beans, of course. Love me a huge pot of salty pintos!
Julia Lee says
My favorite meatless meal also has sweet potato in it! I love the recipe for sweet potato black bean enchiladas found in the Oh She Glows cookbook. They were the first meatless meal that convinced my carnivore husband to become more of a rabbit. Topped with avocado “cream” sauce, these enchiladas are the BOMB! I can’t wait to try sweet potato burgers! YUM!
all time favourite meatless meal…falafel!!! Wtih hummus ofcourse 😉
I have a lot of favorite meatless meals. But I think my favorite is: baked sweet potato topped with black beans, salsa, and avocado. So easy and so satisfying!
Lauren Elyse says
A buddha bowl. Or pancakes. Or veggie tacos. Or just vegetables. I’m slowly turning into a Cabbage Patch Kid as we speak.
Jacquee A says
These sound awesome! I can’t wait to try them since I’m a sucker for sweet potatoes. My favorite meatless meal is sweet potato curry hummus with veggies and pita chips. Yum!
These burgers look amazing!! It’s so difficult to choose my favourite meatless meal… I think I’m going to go with Kushari (an Egyptian dish made with rice, lentils, spices and tomatoes) my mum has a recipe and it’s just divine!!
My favorite meatless meal is pasta primavera.
Olivia Grace says
Veggie burgers are soooo good and these look beyond delicious!!!
Audrey C says
My favorite meatless meal is pizza. I use flat bread and a low calorie tomato sauce. I chop a variety of vegetables(broccoli, zucchini, tomatoes) and drizzle balsamic vinegar. I then sprinkle blue cheese and goat cheese and let it broil in the oven.
Roasted carrot hummus is one of my favorite meatless things to make. I will often make a double batch because I go through it so quickly – yum!
Jules @ WolfItDown says
Hehe, I always get so surprised when you do savoury dishes here, but this looks fantastic! I love sweet potatoes 😀 Thanks for the recipe! x
Renee S. H. says
This looks like a delicious meal idea that I am going to keep in mind! I love a good vegetable curry loaded with as many veggies as possible on top of saffron infused rice.
My favourite meatless meal right now is Quinoa cakes that I eat like mini burgers or paired with a salad. These burgers look so good, definitely going to try them.
stephanie H says
My current favorite meatless meal is beet and black bean burgers or sauteed veggies and avocado on a toasted brown rice tortilla.
Nothing quite like a Peanut Butter sandwich haha!
Veronica Inchauspe says
Hi Katie! Your blog is really nice, even for non-vegans like myself 🙂
My favourite vmeatless meal is lentil and eggplant lasagne that my husband makes.
Cristina @ I Say Nomato says
I love a good sweet potato burger! I’ll have to give these a try for sure 🙂 YUM!
My favorite sweet potato meal is a salad with sweet potatoes, cilantro, chickpeas and avocado, dressed with sesame oil, lime juice and tamari. So easy andso good.
I love to bake or microwave a sweetpotato, top with creamy almond butter, and a vegan caesar salad with garbanzo bean spicy ‘croutons’.
I just made these with the following changes: black beans (because I didn’t have white), no sweetening (the potato was sweet enough without it), 1/2 ts garlic pepper instead of 1/4 ts (it seemed to need it), 1/2 C cooked quinoa (it sounded better to me than rice), no flour (didn’t need it), and a dash of soy sauce (don’t have tahini). Also, I microwaved the sweet potato. But other than that, I followed the recipe exactly! Just kidding. I baked 6 burgers, and they turned out terrific. Luckily, I have a ripe avocado for a topping. Thank you (and Kathy Patalsky) for another great recipe.
Stella @ Stellicious Life says
I love veggie burgers and thsi one sounds delicious! I love to make homemade hummus and zucchini-potato-tomato gratin with parmesan. Thank you! 🙂
Thanks for the recipe, cooked up some sweet potatoes and will be trying this out tomorrow! Our favorite meatless meal is bean tacos with rice and homemade salsa. Simple but delicious 🙂
hmm, favorite meatless meal is pretty difficult, since i always eat meatless, but lately i’ve been really into refried beans and garlic rice with fried plantains and garlicky-smokey kale. these burgers look great!
My favourite meatless meal at the moment is homemade baked falafel with tahini sauce and fermented veggies. Those sweet potato burgers looks delicious!
black bean burgers…will have to try these, though.
These look so good! I may have to try them tomorrow. I was just wondering what to do with my last sweet potato 🙂 I think my favorite meatless meal is a good old tofu stir fry! Simple, versatile, and delicious 🙂
I swear I made this burgers last week! Hahaha and my favorite meatless meal/food are vegan brownies! And for lunch lentil patties:)
Chelsea Ortiz says
Aloo gobi 😀
Favorite meatless meal–hmmm, I really love pasta with avocado cream sauce. But there are so many 🙂
I’ve got quite a soft spot for falafel (no saucing needed) 🙂
Kate L says
For comfort food my favorite is a delicious veggie pot pie or veggie shepherd’s pie. So good and filling and satisfying.
Awesome giveaway, id have to say my favorite meatless meal is tempeh, grilled in a pan with liquid aminos, dipped in applesauce with burnt broccoli on the side…. odd but so good!
My favorite meat-less meal is some delicious Falafels! 😀
CCK’s Sweet potato fries are my favorite.
All of my meals are meatless so I’ll just tell you my favorite meal, Thai curry! And these burgers look delicious! I love that there are directions on how to best make them depending on the method you use to cook them!
Katie Darvin says
I love spiralized zucchini sautéed with marinara sauce
Lisa C. says
Yum! This looks amazing. I am a vegetarian, so I have a lot of meatless meal favorites. I especially love pasta dishes with hearty vegetable sauces. 🙂
We love sweet potatoes at our house. One of our favorite ways to eat them is steamed with kale and sunny seeds (and lots of cinnamon)
My favorite is vegetarian lasagna! I make it with spinach/kale, onions, and mushrooms 🙂
Maria horner says
I’m a recipe junkie. My family puts up with my addiction because they love me and food. I endeavor to make healthy dinners whenever possible. Our favorite meatless meals include Egyptian Koshari, Apple Burgers, Nopalito tacos and Black Bean Burgers. I cooked new recipes for 365 days of different dinners a few years ago and now I cook 1 new recipe a week. So always looking for recipes or new ingredients to try.(hint-I could so use a new cookbook) Thanks for the great blog and recipes.
Protein hotcakes are my favorite meatless meal, but I’m anxious to try the sweet potato burger! Thanks
I absolutely LOVE falafel. And I’m surely going to give this a try!
Favourite meatless meal… hard question, there’s a lot of yummy veg dishes to choose from… I think one of my favourite meatless but “meat-like meal is spaghetti “meatballs” (“meatballs” are made with lentils 😀 )
I love lentil burgers (fave meatless meal) but I’ll have to give these a try
Mandy Robinson says
My favourite meatless meal is pizza – a square flatbread topped with tinned babycorn, pickled onions, mushrooms, and plum tomatoes. Yum.
omg looks super delicious can’t wait to try it 🙂
I think I would love these! Sweet potato burgers..they look absolutely delicious!
I’ve been vegetarian for a few years and I’d thought about going vegan for a long time. It wasn’t until six months ago when I found your website with so many delicious vegan recipes that I decided to become a full-time vegan. The best recipe I’ve found is your lentil Sloppy Joe’s along with the vegan ranch dressing. I served it to my relatives (they eat meat to every. Single. Meal) and they loved it! That’s my current favourite dish and I can’t wait to try this recipe as well. It looks absolutely amazing! 🙂
kale and chickpea non-meat balls are my current favourites!
My favorite meatless meal is a spicy black bean soup with fresh baked bread!
Frankie Cayton says
We are making chopped cabbage, cubed sweet potato, grated turnip, sauté in olive oil, add salt and pepper and 1 1/2 teasp of caraway seeds…. you get it going in the skillet, transfer to baking dish and bake about 30 min or until sweet potatoes are tender. There is also a “miner’s sandwich” I make that uses the same filling with the addition of cornstarch. The pastry dough is made with flour, butter and coconut oil. You make individual pocket style “to go” sandwiches with this filling and bake. They are delicious.
Vegan cookies, cake, pie, chocolate and fruit are meatless right? No, just kidding ( though I love all previous things). I’m a vegan since I was 16 (I’m 19 now) and I mean: choosing my favourite meatless meal? What a challenge. I just can’t choose between a delicious salad with avocado, grilled peppers, smoked tofu, lime and sweet,oven-roasted yams. Or coconut-quinoa with cranberries, kidney beans and spinach. Or just a simple chili. Or curry. Or vegan sushi…. I can’t, sorry.
My favorite meal would be anything with potatoe =D
grilled zucchini sandwiches with feta!
I am loving so many meatless meals right now (and cannot wait to try these burgers), but I would have to say that right at the top is coconut curry with loads of fresh veggies.
Lately, I have been loving quinoa salads with different roasted spring vegetables, spring greens, roasted chickpeas and some sort of dressing or hummus! Thanks for the giveaway!
Andrea Gellen says
Favorite vegan meal – spaghetti squash with red sauce!
My favorite meatless meal is double-bean veggie burgers with avocado-basil cream sauce!
My favourite meatless meal is curry! Any kind, a veggie curry is always delicious!
I can (and have) eaten black bean enchiladas every day of the week! I will definitely try these sweet potato burgers in the coming week!
My favorite is baked potato fries (no oil, no salt)!
Definitely trying these burgers! Thanks for the recipe! 🙂
We love a simple beans and rice with avocado and homemade tortillas!
Love Veggie Lasagna
There are so many meatless meals I love but right now… chilli sin carne!
I love sweet potatoes so much! I eat them all the time, much to the chagrin of my Irish husband who only eats the white variety!
My favorite vegetarian meal is my Mom’s lentil and rice casserole. She made it once a week when I was a kid and I still love it so much. I could eat lentils every day because of her. 🙂
Ashley Clark says
i love quinoa in meals!!
Not summery, but my favorite is veggie chili. We have been loving the pink princess cake from your cookbook for dessert! Thx for giveaway!

I love veggie burgers but my favorite is black bean.
These Sweet Potato burgers look amazing!! Thanks for sharing!
Although it’s super-simplistic, I also really like it – quinoa and red lentils is one of my favorite meatless meals. I do 2T of each and usually add in some vegetables, sometimes tofu, and depending on how I feel nutritional yeast, or butter, lots of salt, and some pepper. Even without all the add ins, though, I find it nice – if I thought of food as comforting, this would be the dish. 🙂
My favourite meatless meal would have to be a veggie wrap, I love fried broccoli and peppers!
Wendy @ Plantivores says
I love eating a baked sweet potato with roasted chickpeas, steamed kale, black olives and a garlic sauce. Yum! These burgers sound fab!
Kristin Burkholder says

My favorite meatless meal is a falafel wrap! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, definitely going to try it when I get the chance!
Adriana Steinberg says
My favorites (there are many!) would be a good veggie burger. I used to buy the frozen ones in the store and they still have their place at impromptu get-togethers but nothing beats a fresh made one.
Lorraine Bowman says
I love a good corn casserole! Also, anything involving sweet potatoes or squash is a must…
It’s hard to pick one favorite, because it changes a lot…but one in heavy rotation is mushroom pasta, with or without vegan sausages. Another favorite, although I haven’t made it in a long time is Isa Chandra Moskowitz’s vegan stew. It takes work, but it’s so good!
These burgers look like they might make a favorite really quickly. 🙂
Gabrielle N. says
My favorite meatless meal at the moment are burritos. They’re so versatile and tasty!

Courtney @ FitCakes says

Sweet potato soup is a favorite with cashew topping!

Thank you Katie, I really enjoy your recipes!

Can’t wait to try this recipe! Thanks!
Chickpea enchiladas are a favorite here.
As for our 1 and 3 year old, their favorite staple breakfast is “Everything Oatmeal”. We throw puréed lentils, zucchini/spinach, sweet potato/butternut squash in with banana for sweetener and various berries. 🙂
These look amazing! I have been following your blog for a while now Katie, and it’s been a great eye-opener for me because I am not vegan or vegetarian, but I love to try new things. This cookbook looks great because recently I’ve been trying to cut down the amount of meat I consume. My current favourite meat-free meal is Taiwanese-style “mixed vegetables chow mien” with lots of tofu and mushrooms, but I am going to keep experimenting!
Looks fantastic! One of our favorite meatless meals is taco soup! 🙂
These burgers look delicious! In general though I’m a big fan of a classic spinach salad with CCK protein french fries on top!
Right now my favorite meatless meal is avocado mashed on toast, but I also love vegan carne asada tacos, lasagna, and pizza (of course)!
Swiss chard and Kalamata olive stirfry from The Vegan Table. I also LOVE your deep dish chocolate chip cookie pie!
I’m sooo trying this. I’m a meatless burger fanatic.
Even though I’m 28, I think my favorite meatless meals are all geared toward little kids. I loooove things like veggie corn dogs, chik’n tenders, any veggie burger, pizza, etc etc. I also do a lot of soups, stews, etc etc. One pot meals are wonderful. Especially in the slowcooker 🙂
Vegetarian lasagna! It doesn’t even need fake meat. I think it’s even more delicious without it, actually.
Jona S. says
I’m currently loving veggie riceballs! Since I mostly eat fish and less meat I don’t feel better, but meat was never my favorite. So I get to love tofu and other alternatives! So vegetable-riceballs it is!
How should I use the nutritional yeast in the sweet potato burgers recipe?
My favourite veggie meal right now has to be a delicious stir fry full of fresh veggies, brown rice, ginger, and tofu. But my favourite dessert has to be the cookie dough dip!
Valerie B says
Black beans and rice! So flavorful and filling!
I don’t know if you get pingbacks, but I made a south-west adaptation. 🙂
Amanda Danielson says
My favorite meatless recipe is my veggie lasagna! It is even better as leftovers 🙂
Our current favorite is from the Thug Kitchen cookbook (my husband just LOVES the prolific use of the F-bomb), 5-spice fried rice and smoky maple tofu. My husband HATED tofu until we tried it in this recipe. It’s like vegan bacon. And we’re omnivores!
These burgers look great – I’ve seen so many great reviews for this cookbook, would love to own a copy! My favorite meatless meal would be cauliflower “wings”. Anything in buffalo sauce is delicious, but the crispy cauliflower works perfectly with the spicy sauce!
Jessica Piekenbrock says
Oh my gosh i don’t know if I could pick a favorite, but vegan mac and cheese has definitely got to be a favorite of mine…I never grow tired of it!
Oh wow. I love sweet potatoes also. Will definitely be trying this soon.
A coconut bacon wrap, yum!
my favorite is tarte flambee with green asparagus and goat cheese
Marie Masters says
Zoodle lasagna with tofu ricotta has to be one of my very favorite vegan meals!
My favorite meatless meal is a big salad topped with roasted sweet potato, tempeh, & tons of veggies, with a big dollop of guacamole on top! Yum!
Kelly J. R. says
I am loving marinated mushroom burgers. Even my meat-loving husband likes them.
Ella Hoff says
One of my favorite meals to make is Vegtable Chow Mein with Explore Asian’s
Organic Edamame and Mung Bean Fettuccine. It is packed with protein and one serving is a lot of food.
These burgers sound good. Is the giveaway open internationally? If so, I would like to enter.
Sweet Potato is our go to vegetable. So versatile.
We’d love you to check out our blog wearefunnycooking.com
Love you work
Angela Patterson says
I made these yesterday, for Memorial Day, and they were soooo good! I actually couldn’t eat the whole thing because it was so filling. Amazing taste. I am going to try baking them next time, as I felt like I used too much coco oil to fry them and they never got super crispy anyways. Still totally worth it and a delicious go-to when you’re over black bean burgers!
Pam Solomon says
These look amazing! I absolutely love sweet potatoes! My daughter would love this cookbook, she and her family are vegan.
My favorite meatless meal is a vegan reuben!
This looks amazingly delicious. This sounds easier than my usual go-to of tofu-enfolded veggie burgers, an old and delicious recipe from Moosewood I started making years ago. They’re delish but these have more fiber!
We are just finishing up our 2nd month of eating mostly vegan, so I would be thrilled to win the cookbook So far we have really enjoyed crunchy quiona thai salad and blackbean and rice stuffed peppers. I just failed miserably at black bean burgers yesterday, so I’m eager to try the recipe above.
Favourite meatless meal is a salmon sandwich loaded with veggies
Caitlin M says
My favorite meatless meal is marinated portobello fajitas! With all the fixings. Yum!
My favorite meatless meal is rice with black beans and guacamole.
Lillian Mitchell says
those look delicious! my favorite veg meal is anything with guacamole! I love mushroom tacos topped with guac, easy to do gluten free too!
Everything Mexican, mostly black bean tacos with homemade tortillas and always with cashew cream yum!
Ginny Culver says
My latest meatless favorite is a tofu sofritos. Spicy but so good!
This burger looks amazing!
veggie pita pizzas are my fave atm.
I’m a huge fan of your lentil Sloppy Joes! They’re especially wonderful when accompanied by a giant plate of roasted vegetables of all types. Or a salad with tons of toppings — cucumbers, ripe cherry tomatoes, cooked corn, olives, roasted beets, green apple chunks, raw kohlrabi, parboiled broccoli, nuts or seeds, etc.!
We live your creamy cauliflower Alfredo topped with hempseeds!
my favorite is tarte flambee with green asparagus 🙂
My favorite vegan meal is tacos with walnut meat, homemade “cheese” sauce, and lots of veggies!
My favorite meatless meal is a quinoa bowl with black beans, corn, avocado, and tomatoes tossed with a lemon olive oil dressing.
Nathalie younes says
My fav meatless meal is actually smoothie bowls in the morning for breakfast, and maybe also the lebanese tabbouleh stuffed zucchinis and grape leaves!!
Sooo making this burgerrr tonight*^
I LOOOVE anything with sweet potatoes and lentils! (So, yeah, this burger is going to be meeting my face sometime very soon. 🙂 )
These look incredible! I’m new to being vegan so I’m loving experimenting and cooking loads and I would say that at the moment my favourite meal is a big bowl of greens (kale, broccoli and spinach) with a portobello mushroom grilled in maple syrup and coconut oil with my homemade satay dressing! Sooo yummy! If I’m feeling super indulgent I’ll add some sweet potato fries with an avocado dip 😛 who needs animal products?!
i love a good tempeh stir-fry with a bunch of veggies 🙂
I love a good salad.
Looks delicious! I enjoy Kathy’s blog and would love a copy of her book! She always has such inviting photos.
My go-to dinner to make for dinner guests is a lentil meatloaf…they are always pleasantly surprised by how tasty it is!
I love making garden soup. Just take a squash and any other fresh roastable vegetables, roast them till there soft and blend in my vitamix with vegetable broth. So delicious.
This burger looks delish! My favourite meatless meal has got to be Vietnamese spring rolls with tofu.
Wow, my favorite? That’s so hard to choose 🙂 I’ll have to go with something sweet as say chocolate chip waffles/pancakes with maple syrup. I’m never not craving that!
Is this open internationally? *fingers crossed* Firstly, gorgeous burger!! Anything as a vehicle for avo works wonders 😉
My favourite meatless meal for the moment is half a de-seeded papaya stuffed with a chia pudding mix and buckwheat groats and some nut butter drizzled on top. SO good!
I’ve gotta try these. Sweet potatoes are one of my favorites. So of course my favorite meatless meal has them. The Thai sweet potato collard wraps from Whole Foods. Yummy, nutty, crunchy sweet potato deliciousness!
My favorite meatless meals actually usually involve sweet potatoes. I love barbecue sauce, too, so black bean burgers with barbecue sauce and sweet potatoes is a go-to meal for me.
Stephanie B. says
I make some sweet potato black bean burritos that are great to freeze and have on hand for a quick meal!
My favourite meatless meal is homemade chipotle bowl; Mixed beans, brown rice, lettuce, salsa, nutritional yeast (No cheese in the dish), sweet potato wedges and a good dollop of fresh guacamole. Yum! These burgers look fab!
Wrong E-mail oops.
My favourite meatless meal is hands down vegetarian pizza! With pesto of course! 🙂
I have a black bean-based burger recipe I like using, but I will definitely be trying this one too! I don’t eat much meat because I don’t like to prep it, but I know I’m not getting enough of the good stuff from my vegetarian attempts. 🙁
Our favorite vegetarian meal is a Peanut Butter Tofu Spinach salad. Pasta is also a favorite. These burgers look tasty and I love finding new ideas.
Ro Porpora says
Your recipes inspire me to try new things! I am so glad you shared this “burger” recipe…my other half helped me whip these up over this past weekend and I really enjoyed them – thank you for this and so many other recipes!
I am making these as we speak and they are falling apart when we flip them… They also only taste like beans 🙁
This looks like a delicious recipe. I am confused about the actual time it will take to make them though. The recipe says 20m, yet you need to bake the sweet potato for 1 hour, mix it all up, cool the mixture for 15-20 minutes, and then cook them. Do you remember how long they took to make, Katie? (or anyone else?)
HI! I bought a few sweet potatoes from the store today to make this. They look huge. How many cups of mashed sweet potatoes equals a “medium” like the recipe calls for?
howard pearson says
They all look sooo good
Just made these, and they were delicious! We did add 1 egg white to up the binding and moisture a little, and they turned out great. Thanks, Katie!
I made these for dinner tonight and they tasted amazing! Only thing is, they were still a bit too soft for my liking. It kept squeezing out the sides of the bun with each bite I took. I added more flour to try and thicken it up a bit but that didn’t seem to help either. Any tips or ideas?
NO vegan meal is as healthy as a meat & veggies meal!
You vegans love to tack the word “Healthy” on in front of the names of your vegan meals because you have nothing else to say for them. They’re not high in protein, they’re too high in carbs and they’re full of unhealthy omega 6 fats, to name a FEW problems.
Why are your recipe times so bloody misleading? Can you be honest and put the real time? The potato alone takes 1 hour!
Could I minus out the nutrional yeast? Will that affect the burger much?
Jason Sanford says
This one isn’t Katie’s recipe, so I would recommend asking Kathy!
Can I is pinto beans?
Jason Sanford says
It’s not my recipe, but I don’t see why not!
Can I microwave my sweet potato instead of baking it? Really excited to try this recipe!
Jason Sanford says
I would ask Kathy because this is a guest post so she would know best 🙂
Can the cannelloni beans be replaced with another type of bean, such as black or garbanzo?
Jason Sanford says
I wouldn’t see why not, but ask Kathy (the guest poster) if you want a definitive answer because this is her recipe! 🙂
Making these tonight! I’m using peanut butter since my mom is allergic to both almond and sesame. I’m also using pumpkin purée since I don’t have sweet potatoes at the moment. I’ll let you know how they turn out! Also, my favorite meatless meal would probably be your vegan meatloaf cups! I love those; they’re so convenient to take into lunchboxes, not to mention delicious and easy to make!
These were great! I had mine crumbled onto baby spinach with hot sauce and Dijon mustard. I have one leftover (surprisingly… it was so good, I’m starting to doubt it will make it through the night…); I’m sure it’ll keep just fine in the fridge.
Jason Sanford says
Love the photo!
These tasted delicious! We enjoyed them with avocados slices, BBQ sauce, grilled onions, and all in a lettuce wrap. However, I don’t think 20 minutes was long enough to bake them. Although yummy, they were too soft and mushy to really be a “patty.”
These have become a new meal prep staple for my at work lunches! I bake them and eat with a side of brown rice instead of a bun. Quick and filling lunch!!
