Vegan Sweet Potato Burgers (Gluten and Oil-Free)

If you crave a plant-based dish that is different, very easy and with simple ingredients, make these delicious sweet potato burgers and delight everyone!

Plus, you can have them oil-free and gluten-free, if you avoid these ingredients.

If you do not have time to bake the sweet potatoes on the same day, prepare them the previous one and save time.

The blue cheese pairs really well with the ingredients because it creates a nice contrast with the sweet potato and the orange.

We recently discovered a delicious French vegan blue cheese, so we used that! Problem to find a blue vegan cheese? Then, just skip it!

Don’t lose any more time and go ahead to prepare them!

We would love to see your delicious creations on social media! Tag us @greekappetite, so that we can see them!
