Vegan burger utilizes fall flavor

When it comes to vegan diets, one common misconception is that such diets are limiting. But this
is not the case at all. anks to increased attention and support of veganism, plenty of recipes have
been developed in conjunction with vegan parameters — even ones that evoke avors attributed
to traditionally made foods. Ideal for autumn, when pumpkins are in abundance and hearty dishes
are embraced, this “Grilled Pumpkin and Black Bean Burger,” courtesy of e Vegan Society, is an
easily prepared meal that’s bursting with avor. It can be enjoyed for a weeknight dinner or as a
weekend lunch or picnic classic.

Grilled Pumpkin and Black Bean Burger

Serves 4

• 1 tablespoon oil • 1 teaspoon salt
• 1/2 cup diced red onion • 2 minced chipotle peppers
• 1/2 cup diced red pepper • 1/4 cup sweet corn
• 3 cloves minced garlic • 3 tablespoon mashed pumpkin
• 1 teaspoon ground cumin • 1 cup breadcrumbs
• 1 15-ounce can black beans • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (optional)

Dice the red onion, red pepper and mince the garlic. Heat the oil over a medium heat.
Add the garlic, onion, red pepper and sweet corn then sauté for 3 minutes. Remove from
the heat and set aside.

Drain and rinse the black beans and pat dry. Place in a deep bowl. Using the back of
a fork, mash about half the beans and leave the other half whole. en add the pump-
kin, cooked vegetable mixture, chipotle peppers, breadcrumbs, pecans (if using), salt, and
cumin. Mix well until all ingredients are combined to desired consistency. Note, if mix-
ture is too dry you can add a little more pumpkin. Using hands, form into four large
patties and refrigerate for a half-hour.

Heat grill to medium-high heat. Brush grill with oil then place burgers on the grill.
Cook for approximately 3 to 5 minutes on each side.

Remove and serve immediately on your favorite vegan roll. Consider alternative top-
pings, including roasted tomatos, caramelized onions or an avocado spread.
