Pumpkin White Bean Patties

Pumpkin may seem like a strange base for a burger but this mix of flavors is sure to surprise!

Pumpkin not only adds flavor, but a healthy dose of nutrients. A cup of pumpkin puree has just 49 calories and includes 3 grams of fiber and a mix of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

When buying canned pumpkin be sure to choose 100% pure pumpkin. Stay clear of pumpkin pie mix, as it’s full of sugar.



Leftover cooked patties can be stored in the refrigerator for up to a week. They’re an easy on-the-go lunch option and can be eaten warm or cold. To freeze for later, cook per instructions, let cool, freeze on a baking sheet for 3-4 hours and then transfer to a freezer bag. To enjoy, remove as many as you need and heat them up for a quick meal.

For a traditional burger style, serve between 100% whole grain bread topped with greens, onion, tomato, guacamole, hot sauce or sweet & spicy BBQ sauce. This patty is also delicious over a bed of leafy greens.
