The acorn squash I roasted the other night was huge and made a lot more than just two servings worth for dinner. I also had quinoa left over, so I decided to continue my veggie burger experiments – these burgers were a great success in my opinion.
I started by mashing the roasted squash and greens mix with the cooked quinoa with a can of drained and rinsed black beans. I then added 1/2 a cup of nutritional yeast and about a cup of oats. I found that mashing the mix by hand created the best consistency (and its fun to play with food!). I formed up the patties and cooked them in my cast iron pan on the stove.
I served the burgers on a bed of romaine – this burger is definitely a front runner out of all the recipes I’ve tried. I can’t wait to try out different variations of this recipe.
Your photos encourage me to join in your experiments. I will try this the next time I have left over acorn squash!
Next time, I’m going to try the recipe with sweet potatoes…but these were really great!
These look yum! I have ongoing veggie burger experiments too – check them out on my blog if you like. they are generally delicious…
I’ve been doing a lot of stalking on your blog – just keeps adding ideas to my already crazy long to-do list of things to try 🙂
Excellent recipe today thanks for sharing. I really enjoyed reading today’s post.
