  • 1 cup butternut squash cubed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ cup tomato chutney
  • ½ cup red lentils cooked
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil not toasted
  • 1 tablespoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 cup wheat gluten


  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Toss cubes with olive oil and spread on a baking sheet. Roast for 45 minutes or until tender. Set aside.
  • Lower oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Have another piece of parchment paper or baking mat and another cookie sheet.
  • Combine squash, chutney, lentils, oil, garam masala and salt in a large bowl. Combine well with a potato masher.
  • Add breadcrumbs and gluten and stir well.
  • Divide preparation into ½ cup portions. Shape into burgers, about ½ inch thick. You should have 6 burgers.
  • Place burgers on a prepared cookie sheet. Cover with another layer of parchment paper or baking mat and top with a second cookie sheet to keep burgers from puffing up too much.
  • Bake for 35 minutes (no need to flip halfway through) until burgers are golden brown and firm.
