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


  1. 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)
  2. Heat a pan over medium heat for about 5 minutes
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Add in the cooked mushroom mixture to the mashed black beans. Then add in parsley and salt and pepper to taste. Combine well.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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)
  10. Keep leftovers refrigerated. Or store in the freezer for up to 4 weeks.
