Pumpkin Blackbean Burgers

I’m still cooking up all things pumpkin and with the colder weather setting in, I felt like having something a little more savory. And since I didn’t feel like making something that required a lot of effort, this was the perfect fix. Here is what you’ll need:

  • 1 1/3 cup cooked black beans
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 tablespoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Here’s the best part of making this recipe… throw it all together in a single bowl and mash. And if anyone is interested, I cooked my own black beans that I bought from Zero Green, the plastic free shop in Bedminster. If you don’t have time ahead to do that, canned beans work just fine; just drain before putting in the bowl.

If you have a thick mix, you can go ahead and fry the burgers in a greased pan for about 5 minutes on each side. Mine unfortunately came out with a bit more moisture than I would’ve liked. So I put them in a bun pan to shape.

Place in the oven at 180 C / 350 F for 20 minutes. Let cool completely.

And there you have it, Pumpkin Blackbean burgers! These are tasty, filling, vegan, egg free, dairy free… did I miss anything here? And they taste good! Like, really good! I think they are great on a burger bun, with a side salad, or mashed up in a wrap. However you eat it, give these a try for a quick & healthy dinner! Bundle up Bristol, it’s gonna be a cold one. Thanks for reading and Happy Eating!
