This Sweet potato burger is definitely something I’ll make again. The cheddar and jalapeño, cilantro, date and sweet potato was a nice mix of flavors.

You could put some in the freezer for another time. I thought I was going to do that but ended up cooking all of them.

over medium heat in a frying pan cook with coconut oil.

I had the cheese melt out of one and fold in half when I tried to turn it over.

So I took it out and nibbled a little bit from it. Wow, it was good! The cheddar and jalapeño, the cilantro, date and sweet potato what a nice mix of flavors. And when I looked back at the plate it was gone.

  1. Omg! I LOVE that you sandwiched cheese in the middle--best kind of burger, by far. This looks much better than the last cheese-stuffed veggie burger I tried--I wadded up a ball of mozzarella and stuffed it inside and it didn't melt very well. I definitely want to give these a go--red quinoa and everything sounds amazing!
