STOP EVERYTHING! You guys, this is what burger dreams are made of! Since I have gone gluten-free, bread has been a hard thing to replace. Gluten-free bread has come a very long way since I ventured into this lifestyle almost six years ago (Wow! Time flies!), but one thing that I still have a bit of a hard time finding is a good gluten-free bun. There are definitely some decent ones out there, but I wanted to try something different, and something that was a little more plant-based. Naturally, I turn to sweet potatoes because well, they are on my favorite food list for sure!
So, I took a sweet potato that was more rounded instead of oblong… because I figured it would look more bun-ish. I sliced it lengthwise to create a bun shape, drizzled it with olive oil, sprinkled it with salt, and then popped it in the oven for about 20 minutes. Now from one large sweet potato, I got two “buns”. I then just happened to stuff a vegan barbeque burger patty in there and piled on the toppings. My guac to burger ratio is a little off, I just can’t help myself when it comes to guacamole. I think that may be at the top of my favorite food list… I’m going to share with you exactly how to make this superhero of a burger, but first a little burger checklist:
Is it messy? Yes, but what good burger isnt?!
100% Plant-based? You won’t believe it!
Gluten-free? As always
Delicious? Oh heck yeah!
Nourishing even?! Surprise!

If you’re following me on Instagram you know that I was pretty stoked about this recipe, and I think you guys were too! I gave you a little preview of the recipe, but now let’s really dive in and make it happen! I was so excited to use Annie’s Homegrown BBQ Sauce in this recipe, I think you’ll like the flavor it gave these vegan patties.

** From 1 large sweet potato, I got 2 "buns". You will get about 10-12 patties, so plan your buns accordingly.
