Best Vegan Black Bean Burger
Meal Prep Veggie Burgers
Prep/Cook Time: 45 min
Yield: 6 patties
- 2-3 tablespoons of grapeseed oil
- 1 small yellow onion
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 3 green onions
- ½ teaspoon of paprika
- ½ teaspoon of cumin
- 1 cup of crimini mushrooms
- 1 can of cooked black beans
- 1 teaspoon of dried parsley
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 head of lettuce or gluten-free buns
- Prep and chop vegetables. Dice the yellow and green onions, and mince the garlic. Place crimini mushrooms into a food processor. Blend until roughly the same size as the onions. (all vegetables will shrink down during cooking)
- Heat a pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes
- Add 1 tablespoon of grapeseed oil to the pan. Sautee the diced yellow onion and garlic for about 3-4 minutes or until onions are soft.
- Add green onions and chopped mushrooms into the pan. Cook for another 3-5 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked. Add paprika and cumin. Remove from heat when done cooking.
- Using a fork or a potato masher, mash the black beans in a large mixing bowl. Mash until smooth. Option to use a food processor.
- Add in the cooked mushroom mixture to the mashed black beans. Then add in parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Combine well.
- To form patties, take a handful of the mixture (about the size of your fist) and shape into a round patty that is about 1 inch thick. If it is too thin, the patty might fall apart but if it is too thick, it may not cook all the way through.
- Heat a pan (grill pan or cast iron if you have one!) over high heat for 5 minutes. Turn heat down to medium and add in about 1-2 tablespoons of grapeseed oil. Cook each patty for about 3 minutes on each side.
- Assemble your burgers on a gluten-free bun or use 2 large pieces of lettuce in replace of buns and add all the fixings you like! (lettuce, onions, tomatoes, mustard, ketchup)
- Keep leftovers refrigerated. Or store in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.
