Sweet Potato/White Bean Veggie Burger.

When you want a hearty, delicious burger, a veggie burger probably isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Especially one that is also vegan. However, the sweet potato and white bean veggie burger that I whipped up for last night’s dinner truly impressed me. It is clean, all-natural, absolutely delicious, and I had to refrain from eating the 2nd one {that’s today’s lunch}. Try it for yourself, I promise it stacks up to a real burger! For a side dish, I sliced the remaining sweet potato and made healthy baked sweet potato fries, with an aioli dipping sauce. My whole dinner clicked in under 500 calories, yet tasted completely indulgent.
