Mushroom Black Bean Burger Patty

This is my favorite recipe for a mushroom black bean burger because it takes less than 20min to prepare and makes dinnertime so much easier. The reason I like these so much is because the base of the patty can be adjusted to whatever flavor of burger you may be cooking later. My husband isn’t much of a cook but he likes to make these to take to work because the patty tastes good on its own. Sometimes I put leftovers in a quesadilla as well.

Below is a YouTube video showing how easy these are to make. Remember, this is only the patty so assembling a burger is all up to you! I love making a vegan bacon guac burger but I’m also big on a plain cheeseburger too. Again, the main reason I like these is the fact I can make them ahead of time making dinner time a breeze heating these up.

As always, if you make these let me know or tag me on instagram here. I know this is a vegan blog but I think a mushroom burger is something anyone can enjoy once in awhile.

  • Change up the seasoning to your taste. I made this video to help make a patty that holds up well and provides more nutrition than a store bought one.
