Who says vegetarians can't have all the fun? The sweet potato burgers are delicious and heartwarming!
It's tricky to find a decent veggie burger up here in Scotland, so we decided to make our own. I love anything with pumpkin, sweet potato or butternut squash in and these were some of the best burgers I've ever had. They're really easy to make and you can whip up a batch in just under 30 minutes (if you use the microwave option), so they're great for a quick meal.

(Serves 4)

I was also wondering whether canned pumpkin would work for the recipe? I have a load I got reduced the other day and I'm trying to find different ways to use it Happy

Ohhh I bet it would taste amazing with roasted pumpkin. Is canned pumpkin blended or chunks?

I think the stuff I have is blended, not entirely sure if you can get chunks but it might be something worth looking out for.
