This baby-friendly veggie burger is a nutritional powerhouse that your whole family will love. The burgers pack iron from the black beans along with vitamin C from the sweet potatoes to help your baby’s body absorb the iron. The dipping sauce helps moisten the burgers as dry foods can pose a choking hazard.

Author's Notes

You can freeze extra patties for future use. To make the recipe vegan: for the egg in burgers substitute 1 Tbsp chia seed + 3 Tbsp water, stir to combine and let sit for 10 minutes before adding to ingredients. Use vegan mayo in the dipping sauce.
