Foodie Friday: Chipotle Lime Sweet Potato Tofu Burgers

My recent order from Relay Foods left me with a bunch of sweet potatoes [I’m not complaining!] so I was searching for different ways to prepare them. I found tons of sweet potato burger recipes on Pinterest, including this one from The Lean Green Bean, which I thoroughly enjoyed last week.

This totally inspired me to figure out another burger recipe. I’ve also been trying to cut back on grocery costs so I loved being able to stretch all of my ingredients in burgers. Not to mention, they’re so versatile!

  3. I’ve now made this recipe twice and I have to say, they taste AMAZING but I can’t get them to hold together! The first time, I thought maybe it was because I prepped the burgers the night before so that all I’d have to do when I got home from work is bake them, but the second time I made everything fresh and baked them right away and still had trouble. Any ideas?

      • I’ll have to experiment a little more — I can form them into patties but when I go to flip them, they crumble to pieces. I’ll start by trying a little extra sweet potato and see if it gets better or worse. Thanks for the suggestions! Like I said, I love the recipe, if I can just get it to cooperate 🙂
