Can you believe it is SEPTEMBER?!?!?
I can't. It feels like I was just finishing up the last year of school. I can't believe I am already into my third year of teaching! School is going really well so far and I am having a great time getting to know my students. I have high hopes for this year and I can't wait to see how it goes.
Since it is September, I figured we could celebrate with a fall-like veggie burger recipe. Now, I don't want summer to end, but I feel like good food can help ease the transition. Fortunately, the weather is still certainly summer-like. I hope it stays that way for a while! While, fall is nice, winter is the worst.
I LOVE The Kitchn. It is a great site with tons of amazing recipes. Also, I love that the recipes are super use friendly and they all come with tons of tips, variations, and explanations. I found this Sweet Potato Veggie Burger on their site and then I just changed small tidbits based on what I love and what we had in our fridge! Please head over to the site for the recipe!
I made the sweet potato patties according to the directions, but here are the few things I added/changed.
1. I did not chop the sunflower seeds. I wanted a bit of a crunch in there, so I left them whole.
2. I also used my food processor with a grater attachment to grate the sweet potato. This made things go super quickly! Then, I simply added the beans to the food processor and pulsed to combine.
3. Finally, for my toppings, I used some sliced tomato, sliced avocado, spicy cheddar cheese (sliced), and BBQ sauce.
Holy moly it was delicious!
