  • 1/2 Hokkaido pumpkin|squash deseeded & roughly chopped
  • 1 Tbsp coconut or olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 240 g cannellini beans from a can rinsed
  • 3 Tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 Tbsp oats
  • 2 Tbsp ground flax seeds
  • 4 Tbsp chickpea flour*
  • 1 tsp guar gum (optional)**
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ras el Hanout
  • 1 tsp hot paprika***
  • 1/2 tsp coriander


  1. Boil the pumpkin in a pot of water for about 10 minutes until it is soft. Then drain and set aside.

  2. While the pumpkin is cooking, heat the oil in a pan and sauté the onion until golden brown. The darker you roast your onion, the more roasty flavour your burger patties will have.

  3. Mash the cannellini beans in a bowl with a fork.

    Add the boiled pumpkin cubes and mash as well. (It's totally ok if there are some lumps left.)

  4. Now put all remaining ingredients in the bowl and mix well.

    Taste and season if necessary.

  5. Form 6 big (or 8 smaller) patties with your hands. I always take disposable gloves for this, because the dough is relatively wet and otherwise sticks to my hands and everything gets a bit messy.

  6. Fry the patties in a pan with a little oil over medium heat from each side for about 5 minutes until golden brown.

  7. Now you can assemble your burger:

    Burger bun


    Pumpkin Pattie


    cucumber slices

    tomato slices


    burger bun

    Take a big bite and enjoy! 🍔


* You can also use cornstarch or breadcrumbs here.
** It gives the patties a better binding.
*** Or sweet paprika, if you do not like it too spicy.


I always choose organic produce whenever possible. It’s not only better for my health (and yours, too), but also for our environment. 🌍💫💚
