There’s nothing better than a great veggie burger. They tend to get a bad rap sometimes due to some of the less-than-delicious frozen versions, but making them yourself changes that taste entirely. They’re super customizable, healthy, and filled with fresh veggies that will have you feeling good all week long.
We set out to find some of the most delicious, comforting veggie burger recipes out there, and stumbled upon this one from Making Thyme for Health. Packed full of antioxidants, protein, fiber and vitamin A from the black beans and sweet potatoes, these veggie burgers are super nutritious. Not only that, they’re packed with flavor… fresh sweet potatoes, spicy jalapeño and sweet corn come together to give you tons of variety in every single bite.
Best of all, they freeze well and can be reheated for dinner for the rest of the week. Try them tonight and let us know how it goes!
- 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, drained and rinsed
