Vegetarian Sweet Potato Burger

This sweet potato burger is for all the vegetarians out there. These days, I guess everyone has at least one friend or family member who is a vegetarian. While replacing meat or simply cutting it out is relatively easy in most recipes, some feature animal products as the main attraction. But fear not–a delicious patty can be made without beef or chicken as well.

Sweet potato is one of these options, I have sacrificed my 800 grams of vegetable to try to come up with a tasty combination. Enjoy this very tasty recipe for a vegetarian sweet potato burger.
