I am a huge fan of veggie burgers and so is my husband. We usually just buy them but I knew that making them would be even more delicious. A couple of years ago, my husband made homemade mushroom burgers that were awesome. I have had black bean burgers on my "must make" list for forever and finally got the chance to make them.

These are pretty simple to make and come out great. To save time in the future and have another meal prepped and ready to go, I doubled this recipe and froze half of the burgers. You can top these with whatever your favorite toppings and condiments are.

Mushroom Black Bean Burgers


Prep Time: 10-15 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes

Ingredients (4 burgers)
  • 3/4 cup oats
  • 1 cup portobello mushrooms
  • 1 can low-sodium black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 green onions, finely diced
  • 1 green pepper, finely diced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Hamburger buns
  • Toppings: tomatoes, lettuce, onions, etc.
Instructions
1. In a food processor, blend oats until they resemble a course powder. Add in 3/4 of the black beans, mushrooms, green onions, bell peppers and egg and mix again.
2. Add spices and stir.
3. Remove the bean/veggie mixture from the food processor and put in a large bowl. Stir in whole beans. Mix well. If the mixture is too wet, you can add some breadcrumbs.
4. Take the mixture and make into 4 burger patties.
5. If you have time, let the burgers sit in the fridge for a bit to set.
6. To cook burgers, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a skillet and heat until hot. Cook burgers for a few minutes on each side.

These turned out great and I would make them again. I love experimenting with different ingredients so I may add more vegetables, use a different kind of bean, etc. We cooked up half of the burgers one day and the other half the next day which worked out really well.

  1. Awesome recipe!

    I added quinoa (1/2 cup dry then cooked) as I was thinking this could get pretty messy, pretty quickly. I also used chilli powder instead of cumin and fresh garlic as opposed to powder. This quinoa addition yielded me 5 good sized patties.

    The last thing I did was freeze them overnight and cook from frozen. They cooked very much like a regular burger. I did use about a teaspoon of olive oil to get them going. It gave a really nice crust on the patty sides. They looked a LOT like beef burgers when cooked.

    The portobello and bean mix gives this quite a meaty texture. The flavour is outstanding. I made them for dinner tonight but I was so intrigued I had to have one for breaky. I put some guacamole and salsa and toasted up a half of a naan slice...I really could have eaten two!

    I plugged the recipe into a nutrition calculator and this is what I got (includes the oil needed to cook them all):
    Protein. 14g
    Carb. 50g
    Fibre 10g
    Fat 8g (1g saturated)
    Cholesterol. 37mg
    Sodium 340mg
    Potassium 309mg
    Vitamin C. 119mg
    Calcium. 8mg
    Iron. 28mg

    Overall quite healthy. Next time I'm going to use home made beans as opposed to canned to cut the sodium down.

    Again, great recipe and thanks for sharing it!
