These butternut black bean burgers are BOMB. Say hello to your new favorite veggie burger!
Remove your flax egg from the fridge and add it to the bowl. (If using a regular egg instead you'll add it here)
For optimal burger shape, cup each ball in your hands and squeeze tightly, rotating as you gently, but firmly, press it into a disc. The idea is to pack all the veggie goodness into the patty shape.
* Feel free to use canned butternut puree or simply roast/cook your squash and mash away!
The burger itself is naturally vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free, so choose your favorite toppings and have fun with it!
Vegan mayo combined with sriracha makes a great veganized version of the sauce I used and a fresh mountain of guac also makes another stellar vegan topping!
Following a gluten-free diet? Make sure you grab GF-certified oats! You can also use your favorite GF bun, wrap the burgers in lettuce, or top them on your favorite salad! It's awesome any which way! There are so many possibilities for these tasty veggie burgers, I hope you love them as much as we do!

Most weekends I'll cube and roast an entire butternut squash and use it for soups, salads, and even these burgers! You can puree roasted butternut squash at home for this recipe or opt for a store bought puree, totally up to you!
