We are not vegetarians and we love regular beef burgers. But we also find a veggie patty to be a delicious treat!
2/3 cup pumpkin puree (I used the whole can)
2/3 cup rolled oats
1 can of white beans, rinsed and drained
2 tablespoons ground flax mixed with ¼ cup warm water (or one egg, that's what I used)
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt (to taste)
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. In a large baking sheet place a parchment paper or spray with cooking oil.
Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl and mash the beans well with a potato masher until mostly smooth.
Using a large spoon, measure out 8 patties, on the baking sheet. Flatten the tops with the spoon to make a thick patty shape.
Bake for 20 minutes on one side. Then carefully flip over the patties and bake for 10 to 15 more minutes until firm. Serve on a bun with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
