Ingredients:

  • 1.5 c. roasted butternut squash, roasted

  • 1 c. cooked quinoa (or brown rice)

  • 1 c. black beans, mashed

  • 1/2 c. bread crumbs (or rolled oats)

  • 1 large egg

  • 1 small onion, very finely chopped

  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 1.5 Tbs. cumin

  • 1 Tbs. coriander

  • 1/2 tsp. salt

  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 425. Cut a butternut squash in half, remove the seeds, rub with olive oil, and roast both sides face-down for 35-45 minutes, or until tender. While the squash is roasting, cook the quinoa (brown rice can also be used).

  2. Once cool, add the butternut squash and quinoa to a mixing bowl, along with all the other ingredients. Stir until well combined. The mixture will be wet and sticky.

  3. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-low heat. Shape the mixture into patties and cook about 7 minutes on each side.
