It is a craze that started in Korea and is all over YouTube.

Autumn White Bean & Pumpkin Veggie Burgers {healthy + gluten & oil-free}

  • Author: Jasmine @ Sweet Simple Vegan
  • Total Time: 45 minutes
  • Yield: 8


These white bean & pumpkin veggie burgers are healthy, easy to make, jam-packed with flavor and will satisfy anyone’s taste buds, vegan or not!


  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal + 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 cup gluten-free quick oats
  • 1 (15.5 oz.) can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup pure pumpkin purée
  • 1/3 cup cooked quinoa + 2/3 cup cooked brown rice (or use all brown rice or all quinoa)
  • 1/2 cup diced red onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 tablespoon hot sauce (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon vegan Worcestershire sauce (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 teaspoon fresh sage
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

To assemble:

  • 8 vegan burger buns
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 tomato, sliced into rounds
  • 1/2 red onion, diced
  • 1/2 head lettuce
  • Condiments. such as ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc.


  1. Mix the flaxseed meal and water in a small bowl and set it aside for 15 minutes to thicken into a flax “egg”.
  2. In the meantime, grab a medium pan, and add in 2-3 tablespoons of water, along with the onions, garlic, and celery. Sauté until translucent, about 4-5 minutes.
  3. In a food processor, add in the flax “egg”, cooked vegetables and all of the remaining ingredients. Process for 30-45 seconds, or until all ingredients are blended together but still remain a bit chunky. Place into the refrigerator for 10 minutes.
  4. Line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Remove the dough from the refrigerator and form mixture into patties using a mold or the top ring of a mason jar, then place them onto the lined pan. Each patty should be about 1/3 cup large, and this will result in 8 patties. Place in the refrigerator to set for 20 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 375°F. Bake patties for 25 minutes, carefully flip, then bake for another 5-10 minutes or until browned.
  6. Allow the patties to cool completely before assembling your burgers!

    Literally THE BEST veggie burger I have ever had! They are moist, yet not mushy like other veggie burgers and the flavors work so well together. They are perfect for a festive autumnal meal with friends, but they are so good, I would eat them all year round! Thanks Jasmine and Chris!! xx
