Sweet potatoes are hard to hate, especially when they go with just about every meal and every flavor. I can enjoy sweet potatoes in my morning green juice, in my oatmeal, as fries next to my lunch or in between two buns as a burger. This recipe for an easy vegan sweet potato burger is just another testament to sweet potato’s versatility in the kitchen. Enjoy!
