I usually cook sweet potatoes in the microwave- they only need about 8 minutes do be soft. These patties taste wonderfully different and hold their shape really well.


Spread the buns with organic ketchup, mustard and top with slices tomatoes and avocado, drizzled with lemon juice and seasoned with black pepper.


The only healthy buns that I could find today were multigrain buns. They didn’t look too impressive but tasted surprisingly good.
