Curried Sweet Potato and Chick Pea "Burgers"

I'm always on the lookout for new vegetarian meal ideas and this one sounded intriguing. We invited our friends over for dinner on the night we had these as they are vegetarian so I figured they would be good candidates to try it out on!

Curried Sweet Potato and Chick Pea "Burgers"-shared from The Sweets Life
2 cups chick peas
2-3 small sweet potatoes, baked
1 tsp curry powder
1 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped(optional)
salt and pepper to taste
favorite toppings:tomato, lettuce, mayo, ketchup

Scoop potatoes out of skin, place in a bowl. Add in chick peas and mash throughly. Season with curry powder, salt, and pepper, parsley if using. Mix to combine. Scoop out and form patties. (I got 4 big burgers and 6 mini burgers) Place on hot grill or pan and cook for 5-6 mins per side.

**I wasn't sure how these were going to stay together, but they stayed together perfectly! You never would have known they were a bean burger! We all really liked them, even the 3 kids at least tasted them. The curry was a perfect addition and it wasn't to strong. We weren't sure what would be good on them, I really liked it with tomato and mayo, our friend liked his with ketchup and mayo. Overall they were a great hit!
