Sweet potato & black bean burgers

Preparing something in advance when you know you will be busy and will have no time to cook, is very useful. In that way you can still have something healthy to eat.

I think that vegan burgers are great idea in that case. It does not take long to make them and then I have two dinners and lunch at work.

Makes about 14.
