Due to the obscene amount of snow we’re having, I was unable to go to my friend’s place for brunch today as planned. My fridge is almost empty since I’m supposed to leave for Florida tomorrow morning, so I had to improvise!
These came out delicious and will definitely be placed on the repeat circuit!
Black Bean and Pumpkin Burgers
(makes 2 patties)
- 1 C black beans (drained and rinsed)
- 1/3 C canned pumpkin
- 1 Tbsp. whole wheat pastry flour
- 1/2 tsp. cumin (obviously!!!)
- 1/4 tsp. garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. chili powder
- Parsley (optional: a few leaves chopped and added into mixture, and a couple to garnish)
Combine all ingredients in a bowl and mash them together.
Once mashed/mixed to desired consistency, form into two patties. Cook in a skillet (sprayed with PAM or something similar) on medium heat for a couple minutes on each side.
ENJOY! Eat them as is, in a bun with salsa or ketchup/mustard and spinach, or on top of a salad :)
Since we were all snowed in, my neighbors hosted a big pasta dinner for all of us in the cul de sac tonight :) I heart my neighborhood. It was delicious and fun to hang out! Well worth wading in the knee deep (!!!) snow to get to their place :)
Here I am in my front lawn coming back from dinner… the snow was SO DEEP!!! (Disregard the random snowflake attacking my eye ;) )
Alrighty I’m just about done packing and now off to bed! I’ll be up early to check my flight status… we’ll see if I actually get out of here tomorrow or not!
