Ingredient: Avocado, Beans, Mushrooms, oats
Servings: 4
Ingredients
  • 3.5 oz shiitake mushrooms roughly chopped (sub another kind of mushroom if preferred)
  • 1/2 yellow onion thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 14oz can(s) black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1/4 cup(s) rolled oats (gluten-free if preferred)
  • 1/2 avocado chopped
  • 1/4 cup(s) cilantro chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced or pressed
  • 2 teaspoon(s) smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon(s) chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon(s) cumin
  • 1 tablespoon(s) olive oil for cooking
For serving (or sub your favorite toppings):
  • 4 hamburger buns (gluten-free if preferred)
  • 8 leaves lettuce
  • 4 slices red onion
  • 4 tablespoon(s) vegan mayonnaise
  • 4 tablespoon(s) ketchup
Instructions
  • Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C).
  • Place the mushrooms and onion on a large baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and toss to coat in the oil, then spread in an even layer. Bake the mushrooms and onions for 15-20 minutes until tender.
  • Spread the black beans in an even layer on a second large baking sheet and place into the oven and bake the beans until they are dry, 8-10 minutes.
  • Add the beans, mushrooms, and onion to the bowl of a food processor, along with rolled oats, avocado, cilantro, garlic, paprika, chili powder, and cumin. Blend until smooth, scraping down sides of the food processor as needed. Place the burger mixture into the refrigerator to rest for 10 minutes. Then after 10 minutes, form the mixture into 4 even-sized patties.
  • Pour the olive oil into a large skillet over a medium heat. Add the bean burger patties to the skillet and cook until the burgers are crisp and golden on the outside, and heated through. Make sure to cook the burgers low and slow, this will help them crisp up. This will take around 5 minutes on each side.
  • Once the patties are cooked, place into the burger buns and add the toppings. Serve immediately.
Notes
For oil-free: simply omit the oil and sub with a splash of water or vegetable broth if needed.
