Vegan MOFO VI: Burgers and Gravy

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.
