  1. Definitely printing this one out to try later! I’m with in you, in that I usually don’t like veggie burgers because they try too hard to be hamburgers. I’m always looking for a better veggie alternative, so I’m excited you shared this one 😀

    • I’m glad I’m not the only who doesn’t like it when veggie burgers try to be like “hamburgers”! I figured I was the only one! LOL! I think you’ll really enjoy this veggie burgers. I like that they have some spice to them without it being overwhelming. And they really do freeze well so it’s my homemade boca burger!

    • I’m weird because if I go somewhere where they will cook them order over a grill, than I think they are wonderful. But make one for me in a frying pan and I’m outta here! This is a really nice version. Lots of good for you foods and I don’t feel heavy after eating one. Have a great weekend, Sue!

    • You’re welcome, Corinne! These definitely taste great. I agree some veggie burgers taste like cardboard. Bleech!

  2. So, Tanya, are they real sweet? The recipe looks good, minus the sweet potatoes to me. What are your thoughts on the level of sweetness? I would love to be able to make these for the fam, but if they’re too sweet, I don’t think they’d go over so well. 🙂

    • I think the sweetness level will be just fine because the jalapeño and all the other spices, give it some zip. It’s not crazy hot or spicy, but there is a hint of heat. You could even add some red pepper flakes to take it up another notch. Or mix siracha sauce and mayo for the topping would also be delicious. The flavors blended well to me and I probably could taste the beans more so than the sweet potato. Hope that helps!

  3. Hey Tanya,

    Now I’m not a vegan but girl you make this look and sound so yummy!

    My kids used to hide their food too…yes laundry day was full of surprises!

    Thanks for sharing this with us Tanya! I hope you’re having a great weekend girlfriend!

    • I’m not a vegetarian either but I do enjoy the occasional vegetarian meal. They always seem so good-for-you, especially since I am trying to eat more veggies. 🙂 I thought I was only one who hid food in my pockets, but than again most Moms probably don’t pat down kids before they let them leave the table! LOL!

    • Turkey burgers are my favorite too, Arelis. I really like this veggie burger. It had great flavor and hint of heat. Plus, they freeze so darn well and I love having a quick, easy lunch. Keeps me away from fast food!
