Pumpkin Burgers


I’ve been listening to my housemates play the kazoo for the past thirty minutes or so. Our dining service decided to just hand out free kazoos today. Never a dull moment. πŸ˜‰

I went with a total experiment for dinner tonight and made kale and pumpkin burgers. And they were delicious!

There's totally still room for gourmet in the college environment πŸ˜‰

Here’s what I did:

Combine 1 can pumpkin puree, 2 cups kale that’s been steam-wilted (college translation: cover and stick it in the microwave for 3-4 minutes), and 1/2 c oats. Stir well until the mixture is homogenous. Put scoop-fulls of the mixture on a hot griddle/sauce pan (I coated mine with Pam, but oil would also work) and cook for three minutes on each side on medium heat. My mixture made four burgers.

Plop on a plate and enjoy πŸ™‚

I topped mine with salsa and some nutritional yeast. You could also incorporate the nutritional yeast into the burger, add whatever other spices you’d want, or increase the amount of oats for a crunchier burger. The basic mix turned out to be deliciousΒ on its own, but there’s a lot of room for whatever add-ins your taste buds might be wanting.

Yellow vegetable AND greens. Yummm. πŸ™‚
