Simple Menu Ideas for your Summer BBQ's

This Simple Menu Plan will help make putting together your own Backyard BBQ a breeze!

Black Bean & Squash Veggie Burgers

We always have people with a variety of eating preferences & palates attending our BBQ's. In response, I've always had fun experimenting with flavors and making new burgers for our get-togethers. This time I want to share one that was tried and tested with our family recently and is sure to be a hit at your summer BBQ's.

This soy-free veggie burger is packed with flavor, that plays off the herby cilantro and spicy BBQ sauce, topped with an avocado slice on a sesame seed bun.

Emily (Cooking for Kishore)


  • 1 14 oz can of Black Beans, drained
  • 1 Red Onion, choppped
  • 1 Cup Cilantro, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup Carrot, grated
  • 1/2 cup Sweet Corn
  • 1 cup Butternut Squash, cubed
  • 1/2 tsp Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin
  • 2 Tbsp spicy BBQ sauce
  • 1/4 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 6 Sesame Seed Buns
  • Iceberg Lettuce, shredded
  • Tomato, thinly sliced
  • Avocado, thinly sliced
  • Olive Oil


  1. Heat the Olive Oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Add Butternut Squash cubes and cook for 5 minutes, then set aside and let cool.
  2. In a food processor add half the can of black beans, and half the butternut squash, pulse till you get a coarse crumbly meal, DO NOT puree! Transfer the meal to a bowl and mix in the remaining black beans, onion, carrot, corn, cilantro, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, panko, and BBQ sauce. Make sure it is incorporated well. Then divide into 6 and make into rounded patties but don't flatten or squish them. *If the mix is too wet, add about another 1/4 cup of panko breadcrumbs until it holds it's shape but not too dry.*
  3. Make sure your skillet is heated and then carefully add the patties, allowing each side to get a nice crisp brown. *You can pre-cook these and heat them on the grill.*
  4. To assemble your burger - on the lightly toasted sesame seed bun, add the shredded lettuce, tomato, then the burger, then top with a slice of avocado.
