Sweet potato veggie burger w/ avocado

Print this recipe
Veggie burgers are the ideal place to get creative with different flavors and textures. The recipe below gets protein from white beans and a nice sweetness and color from sweet potato. Nutritional yeast adds a pleasantly tangy touch.
The kale adds even more nutrients to these burgers: it might look like a lot, but it'll cook down and make them super moist once the burger patties are cooked. Just be sure to chop it very finely so that it is properly distributed in the mixture.
Feel free to sub gluten-free breadcrumbs for the panko to make these burgers gluten-free.
