Many people think that vegan burgers are boring, that is because they haven't tried this delicious recipe for sweet potatoes and chickpea patties. They're sweet, savory and full of favor. The spice mix gives them that extra kick that they need while the chia and flaxseed add a bit of a crunch to the texture. The caramelized mushrooms and onions combined with creamy citrusy guacamole are the prefect topping to bring out the flavor from these delicious patties. I also recommend using toasted brioche buns but you can use any other variety of buns you like. you can also substitute the buns for lettuce or simply have the patties on their own. definitely a perfect summer meal. I served the burgers with corn on the cob and baked broccoli. Please give it a try and let me know how you like it in the comments sections.

Start by boiling sweet potatoes then peeling them. (you can keep the skins, blend them and add them to the mix if you like)
In a large bowl, mash the boiled sweet potatoes
Then, add chickpeas and mash them too.

When you take them out of the oven careful because they will be soft, almost like fresh baked cookies. You will need to scoop them up with a spatula.
