Make it Vegetarian: Zesty White Bean Burgers

Make it Vegetarian

 Fresh Vegitables

We have been incorporating a vegetarian meal every week. I will be placing those recipes under Make it Vegetarian. It has been a challenge to do that every week, but it has been a rewarding experience. I found this recipe on a few different blogs, but I will put what I did below. I saw it on Veggie By Season by Ashley and thought hmm that sounds great. I was a little worried because I am a meat loving gal. My husband suggested the horseradish sauce and that took the burgers from good to WOW this is GREAT!!! A good thing to do is preheat the oven and prepare the sweet potato fries before you make the burgers and cook them. I tripped the original recipe and froze about twelve burger patties. I did not have slices of pepper jack cheese, so I used the shredded pepper jack cheese. I loved the crunchy out side and soft inside. My husband and I only ate one burger, sweet potato fries and we are stuffed! Try these tasty burgers you will not be disappointed.
