For years I was so intimidated by the idea of making my own veggie burgers. For some reason it seemed really daunting and I figured I’d have to do a lot of research and testing to figure out a good recipe. I also felt like the frozen veggie burgers I bought at the store lacked taste and had a strange texture though, so I put my fears aside and went to work.
After not too long at all I ended up coming up with this sweet potato and black bean veggie burger, and was so excited to find that it wasn’t nearly as hard as I thought it would be. They were also about 100 times more flavorful than the frozen ones, so I’ve never gone back.
I’ve now made tons of different veggie burger recipes, but this millet, sweet potato and lentil version is one of my favorites so far! It’s filling and packed with tons of flavor, but also light and healthy at the same time. Each veggie burger comes in at about 400 calories, which makes it a great low calorie option for lunch or dinner.
The recipes makes eight veggie burgers, and they freeze well, so they’re great if you’re doing some meal prepping and you want to make a bunch ahead of time. I’m finally getting into meal prep and find it so much easier to eat healthy when I have something quick and easy that I can just heat up.
You’re welcome to eat these veggie burgers however you like, but they’re really light and healthy when you sandwich a patty them between some crispy lettuce and pile it high with other veggies.
