It’s Time for Part two of Veggie of the week!!!! This week, I am featuring the beautiful:
I present to you…
These were so delicious. I enjoyed them on one slice of gluten-free bread, with lettuce, tomato, avocado, a pickle (not optional in my world) and some homemade catsup!!! They are a little bit sweet, and just the right amount of savory.
The best part is they are really easy to make! It is so common to look at a recipe, get overwhelmed, doubt ourselves and then opt for our “usual”.
I dare you to try to go outside of your comfort zone and try these!!
SO without further ado:
Butternut Squash Burgers
- 1/2 butternut squash
- 1/2 onion chopped
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 1 TBS rosemary chopped
- 1/2 TBS thyme chopped
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 TBS sun-dried tomato chopped
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 3 TBS green onion
- 1 egg white
- 2 TBS flour of choice (I used quinoa flakes)
- optional 1/2 tsp liquid smoke (try substituting 1/4 tsp paprika!)
- pinch of salt
- 1/2 TBS coconut oil (or olive)
Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. Spray a baking sheet with non stick cooking spray. Place butternut squash flat side down and roast for about 30 minutes (check by sticking a fork or knife in the squash, if it goes in easily it’s done!)
Meanwhile, In a pan, heat the coconut oil, and cook onion and garlic until translucent. Add rosemary, thyme, dried basil, salt, pepper, and sun-dried tomatoes. Stir completely.
Once squash is done, (leave heat on), discard the seeds and scoop out the flesh. Mash squash in a separate large bowl. The mash should fill about 2 cups. Add the contents of the pan, plus chia seeds, green onion, egg white, flour and optional liquid smoke. Mix completely.
On a sprayed baking sheet, portion out 6 patties. Bake in the oven for about 35-40 minutes (flipping half way through). Once the patties have turned slightly browned, take out of the oven. Top with your favorite burger toppings, and Enjoy!
Also, here is a little sneak peek at what’s to come in our Fit For Broadway/Cookies to Kale E-Book!!!! Each meal is perfectly portioned and specifically chosen to create a balanced day of eating. We’ve done all of the work for you.. all you have to do is EAT!!!! (I know that personally I’m really good at that part).
