PREP TIME 20 mins
COOK TIME 15 mins
TOTAL TIME 35 mins
1 can black beans (15 oz drained and rinsed)
1 cup mushrooms (finely chopped)
½ cup breadcrumbs
¼ cup red onions (finely chopped)
2 garlic cloves (minced)
2 tbsp fresh parsley (chopped)
1 tbsp soy sauce or tamari
1 tsp smoked paprika
½ tsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tbsp olive oil (for cooking)
Vegan burger buns and toppings of choice (lettuce, tomato, vegan mayo, pickles, etc.)
In a large mixing bowl, mash the black beans until mostly smooth, leaving some chunks for texture.
Add the finely chopped mushrooms, breadcrumbs, red onion, garlic, parsley, soy sauce, smoked paprika, cumin, salt, and pepper. Mix until all ingredients are well combined.
Divide the mixture into four equal portions and shape each portion into a patty.
Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the patties and cook for about 6-7 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
While the patties are cooking, prepare your burger buns and toppings.
Once the patties are done, assemble your burgers. Place a patty on the bottom half of each bun, add your favorite toppings, and then top with the other half of the bun. Serve immediately with a side of your choice.
- Texture Matters: For a firmer texture, you can refrigerate the patties for about 30 minutes before cooking. This helps them hold together better while cooking.
- Flavor Boost: Feel free to customize the spices based on your preference. Add some chili flakes for a kick or some nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor.
- Grill Option: These patties can also be grilled! Just make sure to oil your grill grates well to prevent sticking.
- Storage: Leftover patties can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. They also freeze well for up to a month.
