Spicy Pumpkin Black Bean Burgers

Sharon Palmer

These nutrition-powered, flavor-packed veggie burgers call upon the indigenous American foods, squash (zucchini + pumpkin), chiles, and beans. With the earthy flavor of pumpkin and beans, the mild heat of jalapenos and paprika, and the vibrant tastes of garlic, pumpkin seeds, and cilantro, these Spicy Pumpkin Black Bean Burgers are humming with amazing aromas and sensations. You can serve them with your favorite whole grain buns or bread, and condiments of your choice (hummus, avocado crema, lettuce, sprouts, or tomatoes). Or they can simply be the star of your plate as a bean patty, served with a flavorful dip or sauce (try my classic hummus), and a side-dish or hearty salad.

Ingredients


Instructions

  1. Place celery, carrot, zucchini, jalapeno, garlic, chia seeds, and pumpkin seeds in a food processor. Process just until finely chopped. Do not over-process or liquify. May need to pause and scrape down sides.
  2. Add oats, tomato paste, onion powder, cumin seeds, paprika, soy sauce, cilantro, pumpkin, and black beans, and process briefly, just until well combined. May need to pause and scrape down sides. Do not over process—mixture should be combined and ground, but not liquefied.
  3. Remove and refrigerate for about 1 hour, until mixture is thickened.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  5. Remove mixture from refrigerator and fill a one-half cup measuring cup with veggie burger mixture, patting down firmly. Invert the filled measuring cup onto a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. Repeat, making 8 burgers. Pat each down to shape a burger about 1-inch thick.
  6. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, until golden brown on outside and cooked through on inside.
  7. Serve in a burger with condiments as desired, or as a bean patty as an entrée with a flavorful dip.
