Description

These curried pumpkin black bean burgers – made with quinoa, black beans, pureed pumpkin, and pepitas – are loaded with plant-based protein and full of spicy flavor. Vegan and gluten-free.


Ingredients

  • 1 15 oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 1/2 cup cooked quinoa
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin (homemade puree or canned)
  • 1/4 cup of pepitas (shelled pumpkin seeds)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 Tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed
  • 1 Tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilii powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • ground pepper, to taste

Instructions

  1. Add black beans, quinoa, pepitas and garlic into a food processor and pulse a couple times. The beans should be broken up but there should still be some small chunks. Don’t over process, as you want your bean burgers to be a little chunky.
  2. Transfer the bean mixture into large bowl and stir in all remaining ingredients and form into five to six patties.
  3. Heat a skillet on medium, spray non-stick spray and add the patties, cook each side until browned, about 6-7 minutes total.
