    Tracee Yablon-Brenner: Hi! Im Tracee with Nutrition is Healing. We are making some black beans sweet potato burgers and they should be cooked now, you are going to plate them.

    Oh! These look delicious. Now, you can plate them on lettuce with some salad around it, chopped salad or lettuce as well as whole wheat burger to increase the flavor, this might be something that kids might enjoy. You can use sesame-ginger dressing or nothing at all, a little bit of mustard and enjoy the burgers. This is how you make sweet potato black beans burgers.
