Black Bean Mushroom Burger
- 15 oz. can black beans
- 4-5 oz. mushrooms (about 1 cup finely chopped)
- 1 Tbsp. ground flax meal (+ 3 Tbsp. water to make a flax egg)
- 1 small onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (or breadcrumbs)
- 1 tsp. dried basil
- 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- 4 hamburger buns (gluten-free if desired)
Toppings of choice (optional):
- Lettuce, clover sprouts, tomatoes, onion, avocado, ketchup, mustard, pickles, etc.
- Make the flax egg: in a small bowl, whisk together 1 Tbsp. flax with 3 Tbsp. water. Set aside to thicken.
- Finely dice onion and mushrooms. (Or use a food processor for quicker results.) Mince garlic.
- In a skillet over medium-high heat, sauté onion and mushrooms for 7-8 minutes. (I use 3 Tbsp. water/veggie broth for no-oil sauté method.)
- Once onions are softened, add minced garlic, oregano, and basil. Stir and sauté 1-2 more minutes. Turn off heat.
- Rinse and drain black beans. Pat dry to remove excess moisture.
- Put black beans in a bowl and mash. Add thickened flax egg, sautéed veggies, oats, and salt/pepper to taste if desired.
- Mix well to combine, then shape into 4 medium patties. (Note: they hold up best if you refrigerate the patties for at least an hour at this point.)
- When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place patties. Bake for 20 minutes, carefully flipping halfway through.
- Place on buns and add any desired toppings.
