Strawberry Oat Jar

Prep Time: 10 mins  Cook time 10 mins  

Don't get me wrong, I love a good juicy burger (there was a period of time where they were a forbidden food for me) & I love the iron it provides. But I also like to incorporate plenty of plants into my diet & give myself a break from meat once in a while.

These Black Bean Sweet Potato burgers are SO GOOD you won't even miss the meat! Packed with flavor, filling & satisfying, they can be set up ahead of time & go great topped with some guacamole over some greens or with a side of veggies.

I promise you won't be disappointed!
