You want to know a secret? The first time I made sweet potato burgers, they were a total flop. One of my friends was visiting me during a college weekend break, and she had recently gone vegan. So, I thought it would be nice to make sweet potato burgers. They were so messy they fell apart, and we were so distracted talking to each other that one of the sides slightly burned. (GASP) What tragedy.

I can assure you if those burgers were a 2 on a scale of 1-5, these are definitely at least a 4.99! ;) After years of experimenting, this sweet potato falafel burger recipe is my veggie burger pride and joy. Hopefully I’m not setting your expectations too high here, but either way I think you’ll be delighted when you make these at home.
