These sweet potato burgers are something special. They're made from deliciously spiced patties with the addition of an aioli inspired by nitter kibbeh, also known as Ethiopian butter.

If that isn't enough to make you want to drop everything and make these burgers right now, a spice-infused oil weaves its magic through the burger and right into the sauce. Ginger, garlic, clove, cinnamon, cardamom, coriander, paprika, and cayenne will fill your kitchen with a hypnotic aroma.
