  1. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion; cook and stir until onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  2. Place butternut squash in a large bowl, and season with curry powder, cumin, sea salt, and black pepper. Toss with a fork, then stir in the egg, garbanzo-fava bean flour, and corn flour. Mix in cooled onions.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Scoop about 1/4 cup of the butternut squash mixture into the pan. Flatten to a patty about 1/4-inch thick. Pan fry until crisp and browned, about 3 minutes per side. Repeat with remaining squash mixture.
  4. Top with sour cream and pumpkin seeds before serving.

My husband and I loved this recipe. Next time we'll add a little more pepper and curry. I didn't have corn flour so used coconut flour instead. Very good!

this was great... definitely glad i put the squash into a colander and pressed all the extra liquid out!. I also added a glove of minced garlic, a tbsp of lemon juice and a grated carrot... N...

Good taste, although I like things spicier! I served these with hot pepper sauce! This needed 2 medium eggs to moisten up the mixture since I didn't have a large one. I omitted the oil, and u...

This was a great addition replacing the starch from our plate. I did substitute some ingredients, Chili powder (1 TBSP)for the curry, Coconut flour for the corn, and I needed two eggs for the b...

This was delicious! I added potatoes because I had a very small squash, and I used blue corn flour (atole), which I had fresh from the CSA. This was just the right balance of sweet and savory, a...
