Sweet and Spicy Vegan Burger!

I started with some sweet and delicious sweet potatoes. Simply bake them at 425 degrees F for about an hour. I like to keep several cooked sweet potatoes on hand through the week because they’re so yummy and versatile.

Quinoa Adds Crunch!

Quinoa is a super healthy grain that helps this stick together and adds just a little crunch.

For the cooked quinoa, I use Bob’s Red Mill Quinoa because that’s what my local grocery carries. Yours probably does, too, but if not you can get some at that link.

Great Northern Beans Add Texture and Protein! 

I’ve added a can of mashed, well-drained Great Northern Beans. They’re super delicious and full of fiber and protein.

Mash the beans until smoother but with a bit of texture still remaining.

The Bernie Burger Uses Vermont Maple Syrup, Of Course!

To make this even a bit sweeter, I added a little bit of maple syrup. Vermont maple syrup, of course! Add the maple syrup, sweet potato, and the rest of the ingredients until well incorporated.

    This is great! The only thing missing at the end of the video is Bernie saying, “I’m Bernie Sanders, and I approve this message.”
