Butternut Squash Burgers

Butternut Squash Burgers | ourfourforks.com

Veggie burgers sometimes get a bad rap for being too crumbly, too starchy, too soy heavy, too soggy leftover… the list goes on. These butternut squash burgers are none of these things. They hold together perfectly, are crispy on the outside and taste even better for lunch the next day. I used butternut squash because of my CSA, but I think any squash-like substance would be a fine substitute; sweet potato purée, canned pumpkin, acorn squash…

 

To follow through with the fall theme, I topped these squash burgers with sautéed leeks and apple butter, but traditional burger toppings would taste good too.

Apple Pie Bars À La Mode

Apple Pie Bars | Vegan, Paleo, Gluten Free | ourfourforks.com

Ever since I made carrot cake bars this spring, I’ve kept a batch of no-bake bars in the freezer, always replenishing before they run out. I make a different flavor depending on the season and since it’s fall it’s all about pumpkin, pecans and apples.

 

A couple weeks ago, I bought a Costco membership (a little excessive for two people), and immediately purchased enormous bags of nuts and dried fruit. I justified these purchases with a no-bake bar frenzy. In one afternoon I made five types of bars: pumpkin pie bars, apple pie bars, pecan pie bars, peppermint brownie bars and gingerbread bars.

 

I’ve put all five of these fall and winter holiday recipes in a small eCookbook, which is completely free. All five recipes are gluten free, vegan and paleo, made without refined sugar. To get the free eCookbook, just subscribe to our e-mail list and it will be delivered to your inbox.
