Sweet potatoes were my first vegetable noodle to make with a spiralizer. I made them and created this Italian casserole dish. The casserole features layers of sweet potato noodles, Italian seasoned ground turkey and fresh mozzarella cheese. It’s a winning combo of flavors. It’s healthy and easy to make!
Quinoa, sweet potatoes, black beans & veggies are combined in this healthy, gluten free, black bean veggie burger recipe. These veggie burgers can be prepped ahead of time and stored in the refrigerator or freezer!
Over the years I’ve tried many veggie burgers, from homemade, to restaurants, to pre-packaged at the grocery store, you always get one of two things, a burger filled with veggies or a vegetarian burger that’s masquerading as a meat burger, which tastes more like meat than veggies.
While I’ve had great versions of both, I tend to prefer the veggie-filled burgers. Since I’m not a vegetarian, when I eat veggie burgers I’m not trying to replace a beef or turkey burger, I’m simply looking for a super flavorful and unique way to go meatless and add more veggies to my diet!
After years of working on creating the perfect veggie burger, I’m here today to introduce you to The Best Veggie Burger you’ll ever have!

You know when you’re about to leave on vacation and you pretty much have no ambition to do anything except for leave on vacation?
Me. Right now.
I’m heading to Arizona tonight for a mini-vaca to celebrate a friends birthday and Halloween. I love my weekends in AZ because I get to see great friends, relax and most importantly, eat Jimmy & Joes Pizza.
If you live in the Phoenix area and haven’t been yet, run, don’t walk to JJP and get a serious slice. If you’re there this weekend you’ll probably see me. I’ll be the little girl, hiding in the corner surrounded by pizza and boneless wings!
Begin by cutting the sweet potatoes into cubes. I love the skins of sweet potatoes so I leave them on and just scrub the potatoes well before boiling. If you prefer, you can peel the skin off of the sweet potatoes before cubing.
Place the sweet potatoes in a large pot of boiling water and cook for 25 minutes or until fork tender.
Drain the water from the pot, then add the milk, cinnamon and ginger.
Outside of being scrumptious and easy to make, this dish is also full of health benefits!
Ginger helps with cancer prevention and treatment, pain reduction and migraine relief.
Enjoy the numerous health benefits of sweet potatoes and cinnamon as well. This “Superfood” packs tons of fiber, vitamin a and vitamin c, while this “Super-Spice” lowers bad cholesterol and helps stabilize blood sugar, now that’s something I can dig in to!
