For the vegan pumpkin patties:

  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seeds
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 cups canned chickpeas, drained
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 cups rolled oats
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard
  • salt, to taste
  • black pepper, to taste

For the rest:

  • 4 whole grain buns with sunflower seeds
  • 2 handful lamb's lettuce
  • about 5-6 mushrooms, sliced
  • 1/2 cup pomegranate seeds
  • 4 tablespoons vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 small clove of garlic, minced


  • Combine the ground flaxseeds with the water and let it sit for at least 5 minutes.
  • Heat some oil in a medium-sized pan and sauté the onion and the garlic for 2-3 minutes. Set aside. Heat some more oil and sear the mushrooms for about 3 minutes.
  • Mash the chickpeas with a fork, leaving some intact for texture. In a bowl, combine the chickpeas, the pumpkin puree, and the oats. Add the Italian seasoning, the paprika powder, the mustard, the flaxseed-water mixture, and the sautéd onion and the garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Form four burger patties.
  • Heat some oil and cook the patties for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Put the vegan mayonnaise in a small bowl and stir in the minced garlic.
  • Serve the pumpkin pattties on whole wheat buns with lamb's lettuce, mushrooms, garlic mayonnaise, and top with them with pomegranate seeds. Serve with potato wedges.
