Finishing up with my Butternut Squash theme, today’s recipe is for Butternut Squash & Bean Burgers. If you have the squash in your fridge from the How to Roast Butternut Squash post, then this recipe comes together pretty quickly. It’s a really flavorful vegetarian burger option. We make them and freeze them and then they are available for my vegetarian daughter to defrost any time the rest of us are having turkey burgers (or anything else not vegetarian).
With your squash precooked, all that’s left to do is quickly fry up the onion, celery and garlic to soften them up a bit, and then mix everything together. I like to form turkey burgers and veggie burgers with wet hands.  I find it so much easier than having the mixture stick to me. After the patties are formed, pan fry them until cooked, and then either serve them or freeze them for another time.
