  • ¼ cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Place mushroom, black beans, almond butter, 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, pepper, paprika, ½ teaspoon garlic powder and salt in a food processor. Pulse, stopping once or twice to scrape down the sides, until a coarse mixture forms that holds together when pressed. Transfer to a bowl and add quinoa and oats; stir well to combine. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk ketchup, mustard and the remaining 2 tablespoons mayonnaise and ¼ teaspoon garlic powder in a small bowl until smooth.
  3. Shape the mushroom mixture into 4 patties.
  4. Heat oil in a large grill pan or nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the patties and cook until golden and beginning to crisp, 4 to 5 minutes. Carefully flip and cook until golden brown, 2 to 4 minutes more.
  5. Serve the burgers on buns with the special sauce, lettuce, tomato and onion.
  • To make ahead: The burger patties and special sauce can be made in advance. Prepare through Step 3; cover and refrigerate separately for up to 24 hours.
