Pumpkin Hash Browns / Vegetarian Pumpkin Burgers

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 25 mins

Found this recipe in a Weight Watches Magazine Nov/Dec 2006 edition. They called them pumpkin hash browns but they are more like pumpkin patties. The patty could also be used for a Vegetarian Burger. They recommended Weight Watchers cottage cheese but I think low fat cottage cheese would be alright. Because I don't like eggs, I used 'Egg Like' which is an egg replacer. I skipped the 'garnish step' and serve them with to tomato sauce.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine pumpkin, cottage cheese, eggs, brown onion, spring onions and wholemeal plain flour in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat.
  3. Spray with oil. Shape 1/4 cup quantities of pumpkin mixture into patties. Place around edge of pan, allowing room for them to expand. Cook for 3 minutes or until golden brown. Turn and cook for a further 2 - 3 minutes or until golden. Transfer to a plate.
  4. Repeat last step until remaining pumpkin mixture is complete.
  5. To finish, arrange spinach on serving plates. Place two patties on each plate. Sprinkle ricotta on top and serve.

Yummo! I served with spinach and ricotta as listed along with a light drizzle of sweet chilli sauce. I think using freshly cracked pepper and a nice strong onion is important for this recipe otherwise it could be a bit bland, but using the freshest of all ingredients it was just great.

These were good but came out rather bland for me. Couldn't taste the pumpkin, mostly the flour. I think I could build on this though. Add some seasoning and use all purpose flour. Thanks for the idea! I'm sure I'll be playing around with this.
