If you are a vegetarian, a burger is probably not on your menu for game night. You may normally eat a frozen garden burger but have never been able to make one homemade.
Here is a recipe for a vegetable burger made from pumpkin.
Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 15 minutes
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1/2 cup oatmeal
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 cup black beans, mashed
1 Tbs oregano
2 Tbs olive oil
1/2 cup green bell pepper, chopped finely
1 clove garlic, minced
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup mashed pumpkin
Salt and pepper, to taste
In a medium bowl, combine breadcrumbs, oats, cheese, black beans, and oregano. In a skillet, combine 1 tablespoon olive oil, bell pepper and garlic. Cooking until bell pepper is tender. In a large bowl, combine egg, pumpkin, breadcrumb mixture and bell pepper. Mold mixture into 6 patties, make as thin as possible.
