Everything but the kitchen sink veggie burger

Even vegetarians and vegans crave a nice, giant burger sometimes. I love veggie burgers. I honestly eat one probably 5 days a week. I typically have frozen veggie patties but we all know that homemade anything is always better. These veggie burgers are bursting with nutrition with protein from the black beans and chickpeas, potassium, vitamin A, and healthy carbs from the sweet potatoes, and inflammation fighting power from the turmeric. That is just the beginning of the benefits from this burger. The best part? The leftover veggie burgers are perfect to top a salad with the next day. Enjoy everyone!

2. Throw everything in a food processor and blend! Reserve some beans and corn to mix in after if you want some full pieces in the mixture.
3. Mold the patties with your hands. Heat a tsp of oil per patty on medium heat on the stove.
4. Cook each side for 8 minutes.
5. Serve with your favorite burger toppings or on top of a bed of lettuce.
