Best Ever Veggie Burgers

These sweet potato and black bean burgers are flavorful, filling, and full of plant-based protein. On top of that - They’re probably THE most popular veggie burger recipe from our Good Clean Kitchen! We love them served in a lettuce wrap, and paired with baked root veggie fries and a simple green salad.

Thank you Peggy Scharlin for the recipe inspiration!
