Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place mushroom, black beans, almond butter, 1 tablespoon mayonnaise, pepper, paprika, 1/2 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.

  • Meanwhile, whisk ketchup, mustard and the remaining 2 tablespoons mayonnaise and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder in a small bowl until smooth.

  • Shape the mushroom mixture into 4 patties.

  • 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.

  • 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.

These were so easy to make (seriously I didn't even get out a cutting board I just ripped the mushroom) and so delicious! The mushroom adds a really nice hearty flavor. I accidentally added the quinoa and oats to the food processor so my burgers were smooth but next time I would leave them out for a heartier texture. My husband and toddler loved them too. They also stick together really well which has always been my problem with homemade veggie burgers. Will definitely make again. Read More
