Recipe type: BBQ
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4-8 burgers
  • 2 cups mushrooms, roasted
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp fresh or dried parsley
  • 1 14oz can of black beans
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • ⅓ cup nutritional yeast
  • ⅓ cup breadcrumbs or wheat germ
  • salt to taste
  1. In a food processor add the black beans, onions, garlic, the roasted mushrooms, cumin, parsley, tahini and pulse until combined. This is like 3-4 pulses ONLY. Do not over process.
  2. If you do not have a food processor, you can use a large medium bowl and mash ingredients with a fork. Again, don’t go crazy.
  3. In a large bowl add the processed ingredients and add the nutritional yeast, bread crumbs or wheat germ and salt to taste.
  4. Mix into the mashed beans, until mixture sticks together but try to not mash much further. Add more crumbs or wheat germ as needed.
  5. Divide mixture into patties.
  6. If grilling, cook for a few minutes on skillet or pan on each side to help prevent these guys from sticking to your BBQ/grill. It is helpful to cook these guys on the grill on top of a piece of foil.
  7. Grill for about 5-8 minutes on each side.
  8. If frying or using a skillet, cook on an oiled pan for about 8 minutes on each side.
  9. If baking, place patties on baking sheet, and bake for about 10 minutes on each side.
