Black Bean Burgers and hash browns

I have been wanting to yet my hand at black bean burgers for a while.  So tonight I hopped onto for some inspiration.I found a recipe that included shredded sweet potatoes, but o didn’t have that in the house.  I do have a LOT of carrots.  So I improvised and created ly own version of the burgers.  I also modified their sauce as well using what I had in the house.
