Hey vegetarians! I came up with a scrumptious way to eat burgers. And this weird striped little squash. I'm not a vegetarian anymore, but I still make it often because it's so good! Serve in burgers, or by itself with a side of green salad, rice or potatoes. This also makes for a wonderful ravioli stuffing.

  • Place squash on a baking sheet; drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 45 minutes. Remove and cool. Cut into cubes.

  • Heat butter in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir shallot and garlic in the melted butter until shallot is transparent, 5 to 10 minutes. Add sun-dried tomatoes; cook until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Mash squash cubes into shallot mixture until relatively smooth. Remove from heat, transfer mixture to a bowl, and cool for 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Stir bread crumbs, egg, and Parmesan cheese into squash mixture. Add more bread crumbs if mixture is too sticky. Season with salt and pepper. Shape mixture into 4 patties.

  • Heat vegetable oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat; cook patties in the hot oil until browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side.

Cook's Note:

You can either leave the mixture chunky or puree in a food processor before forming into patties.

For the ravioli stuffing, omit the bread crumbs and egg and stop at step 5 before forming into patties.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

Delicious. I didn't add in the skin as I am cannot digest it well and I used less oil. The sun dried tomatoes were excellent in this. next time I will also toss in some chopped fresh spinach. If you don't have a shallot a mild onion would work fine..

I made these as-written except that I used crumbled goat cheese in place of the parmesan. We really enjoyed the flavor--particularly the sun-dried tomatoes--but there just wasn't enough texture to them to make them satisfying. It was a little too much like eating firm mashed potatoes. Next time I make these I'm going to try substituting brown rice or kasha for the breadcrumbs and using larger pieces of onion and sun-dried tomato. We also served these with garlic-marinara sauce on top which was a wonderful addition.

I've made this a few times-absolutely delicious. I put it over a piece of oatnut toast with an american cheese slice and raspberry jelly-to die for
