So I can’t take full credit for this amazing recipe. My friend Chiara sent this recipe up from her island and says that it is a must try! (And I agree) So I invited my friend Malia over the other night and we ate some Black Bean Pumpkin Burgers. Delicious!
Black Bean and Pumpkin Burgers
(makes two hefty patties)
1 C black beans (drained and rinsed)
1/3 C pumpkin (cooked)
1 T flour
1/2 t cumin (I didn't have this and it was still good!)
1/4 t garlic powder (or fresh garlic)
1/8 cup of minced onion (this was my addition - I love me some onions!)
1/4 t chili powder
1. Combine all ingredients and mash.
2. Once mashed, form into two patties.
3. Cook on a skillet over medium heat for a couple of minutes on each side.
4. Enjoy! Mmmm... Eat it with: avocado or ketchup or ranch dressing or with spinach (I miss spinach!)
**This is not a Tongan recipe. Just something I made while in Tonga. I may do some traditional Tongan recipes soon. So keep checking back!
