Garbanzo Bean and Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers (serves 6)

 

DSCN2882

Once we are not attempting to replicate the taste and texture of meat, veggie burgers take on an entirely new meaning.  What we want is something toothsome, wholesome and savory that will work well with a bun, onions, mustard or whatever accouterments we wish to add.  These are savory, smooth, filling, and play well with some of the more assertive toppings.  ~ Glyn
