Sweet Potato Veggie Burgers

I have been craving a burger lately… and I had a ton of sweet potatoes. So I combined the two! This recipe is great for a hearty snack or you can have two for lunch or dinner. You can add cheese, whatever veggies you like and spices to top off your palate!

Sweet Potato Veggie Burger

Ingredients:
1 pound of sweet potatoes or 16 oz.
1 cup of Spinach
1/2 cup Edamame
1/2 cup green bell pepper (or color of choice)
1 whole egg
2 egg whites

Spices: Cumin, Chili Powder, Garlic Powder, Sea Salt and Pepper (I did not measure, just sprinkled onto the sweet potatoes).

Directions: 
Cook sweet potatoes until soft (I stuck mine in the microwave for about 15 minutes). Remove skins and mash.

Bake at 400* for 15 minutes. Then CAREFULLY flip over. These are a little delicate and may break, but once you flip them over you can mash them back together again. Bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.

Here is what they look like when done….

Description My daughter was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Prader-Willi Syndrome which in a nutshell, (but please feel free to google for more information) will cause a chronic feeling of hunger that, coupled with a metabolism that utilizes drastically fewer calories than normal, can lead to excessive eating and life-threatening obesity. The food compulsion makes for constant supervision necessary. This page is dedicated to her. She inspires me everyday to live a happy, healthy and active lifestyle. I want to create a healthy environment for her. With my passion for nutrition and fitness, I hope I can spread awareness about PWS and create healthy recipes for her to enjoy with never feeling deprived. She has given me new hope to move forward with my passion in nutrition and become a Registered Dietitian. My focus will be on childhood obesity, emphasizing in PWS. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all! ***Please note I am not a Registered Dietitian. I would classify myself as a "nutrition snob."
