Sweet Potato Burgers

Sweet Potato Burgers

The soft sweet potato blends with the stiffer garbanzo bean to create a firm, yet tender burger, perfect in a bun or as an entree.

Recipe tips:  Freeze leftover patties and have them on hand for a quick-fix lunch.  These patties are also great for chopping over salads.
