There are no words to even begin to describe how amazing this recipe is. No words. I'll just get straight to the point.
Pumpkin Chickpea Burgers
adapted from OhSheGlows
1 cup canned chickpeas
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2 tbsp water
6 tbsp rolled oats
3 tbsp vital wheat gluten
1/3 cup sweet onion, chopped
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/4 tsp each cumin and chili powder
1 tbsp nutritional yeast
salt and pepper to taste
Firstly, coarsely grind the oats. I pulsed a few times in a magic bullet, you dont want a fine flour.
Dump everything into a food processor and blend.
Meanwhile, cook up the chopped onions.
Transfer chickpea mix into a bowl and add onions, stirring to distribute the onion throughout.
Make three balls and flatten into a burger shape.
Over medium heat, cook the burgers for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until browned.
I served this with a delicious white gravy from Tofu Mom. I added a pinch of garlic powder to the mix and then stirred in a few sauteed mushrooms and spooned over the burgers.
