Since I don’t eat beef, I’m always looking for yummy substitutes for burgers, and these Chickpea Sweet Potato Quinoa Burgers are a great find! Bean and sweet potato puree is mixed with cooked quinoa to form the healthy patties and topped with spiced yogurt sauce. This recipe calls for sweet potato rolls but feel free to use your favorite bread. I like toasted whole wheat buns!
