Squash, Grape Nuts and Bean Burger

I needed to use up a summer squash, so decided to try a squash, bean burger.  I don't know what it is about freezing burgers, but I ALWAYS think the burgers have MUCH more flavor after they have been frozen...these are no exception...these have much more flavor after they have been frozen. 

1 cup grape nuts cereal
1 can white beans (I used great northern), drained and rinsed
1/3 cup mixture chopped bell peppers and onions
1-1/2 cups squash, shredded (I used 1 large summer squash)
1 stalk celery, chopped
2 Tbsp peanut butter
2 Tbsp Ground Flaxseed (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/2 cup walnuts, ground
1/4 cup flour (I used potato flour)
2 Tbsp Nutritional Yeast Flakes 
1 Tbsp  Bragg Liquid Aminos
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp ground sage
1 Tbsp dried parsley
1/2 tsp ground thyme

In a bowl, mash the beans to desired texture.   Mix in all the rest of the ingredients.

Form into patties and cook.  I cook them on my   Cuisinart 5-in-1 Griddlerfor about 15 minutes.  If you want to bake them in the oven, bake at 350 for 20-30 minutes.

  1. Philippine pili nuts from the Bicol region in the Philippines is a great Filipino or Philippines food orsnack. Pili nuts are very healthy and nutritious indeed, being a source of energy, potassium and iron.They also have protein, dietary fiber / fibre, and calcium as well as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.  I know they have no cholesterol, no trans fat, and the unsalted ones have no sodium. What is great about the pili nut snack or treat is that they are so crisp, rich, and delicious.
