  • Notes

    If you’ve never attempted veggie burgers, I highly recommend you try this. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin B, C and D and are high an antioxidants which help ward off aging. They’re especially delicious when combined with spinach and coconut oil, like in these veggie burgers. They pair extremely well together and give these burgers even more of a nutritional punch.They’re perfect for a weeknight dinner and honestly could not be simpler!
