Patty Ingredients:

  • 1 15 oz can organic black beans or garbanzo beans (drained & rinsed)
  • 1/2 c organic pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 c garbanzo bean flour
  • 2 T flaxseed
  • 1/4 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp coriander
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • Juice from half a lime


Pesto Ingredients:

  • 1 15 oz can organic peas (drained & rinsed)
  • Handful fresh basil
  • 1/4 c nutritional yeast
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


Additional toppings:

  • Multi-grain English Muffin or Ezekiel Bun
  • Brown, Spicy Mustard
  • Tomato


  1. Preheat your oven to 390F. Line a baking sheet with a silpat or spray with coconut oil spray.
  2. Add all patty ingredients to a food processor fitted with a S-blade & process until combined.
  3. Scoop 1/2 c of batter onto your baking sheet. Smooth into patty shapes. Will make about 4 patties.
  4. Bake for 23 minutes or until crispy.
  5. While the patties are baking add all Pea Pesto ingredients to your clean food-processor. Process until combined.
  6. Assemble burger with desired toppings. I used a multi-grain bun spread with spicy brown mustard, the patty spread with the pea pesto, & topped with tomato. Enjoy!
