Nutritious vegan burgers made with a base of mushrooms and black beans. These veggie burgers are packed with wholesome ingredients and will hold together during cooking. If you’re like me, you’ll want to double the recipe and keep some in the freezer for quick and easy meals all summer. Simply thaw the patties, cook them in a skillet (or bake them in the oven) and you have a nutritious vegan meal ready in less than 15 minutes.

Notes on the Recipe:
  • Serve each patty with a burger bun, condiments and vegetables of choice. I love to serve these with lettuce, onions, tomatoes, sprouts, mustard and ketchup.
  • You can skip one step by using roasted sunflower seeds instead of raw seeds.
  • This recipe can be made with cremini mushrooms or white button mushrooms. Use your favorite!
How to Freeze Veggie Burgers:

You can store the uncooked patties in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer for future use. To prevent the patties from sticking together, separate each patty with a piece of parchment paper. Another option is to place the patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place it in the freezer until just frozen, then transfer the patties to an airtight container or bag. You can defrost them in the fridge overnight or in the microwave before use.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sunflower seeds, raw or roasted, unsalted
  • 2 tablespoons flax seeds, ground
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup yellow onions, finely diced
  • 3 medium garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups cremini mushrooms, diced into almond-sized pieces
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce, low-sodium
  • 3/4 teaspoon oregano, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon thyme, dried
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt
  • 1 can (540ml/19oz) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 tablespoon nutritional yeast
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

Instructions

  • If using raw sunflower seeds, start by toasting the seeds. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Spread the seeds on a baking sheet and toast for 8 minutes or until lightly golden. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, add your ground flax seeds in a small bowl with 4 tablespoons of water to make your flax egg. Stir together and let it thicken while you prepare the other ingredients.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a large non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic and sauté for 5 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Add the prepared mushrooms to the saucepan with the onions and garlic. Cook for another 5-8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the soy sauce, salt, oregano, thyme and garlic powder. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  • In a food processor, add the toasted sunflower seeds, black beans, mushroom mixture, nutritional yeast, flax egg (flax and water mixture) and panko bread crumbs. Process until combined, leaving some texture from the black beans and seeds.
  • Form 6 patties and cook them using your preferred method.

Skillet Option

  • Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a non-stick or cast-iron skillet, over medium heat. Gently place the patties on the skillet and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until the patties are lightly golden and crispy on the outside.

Baking Option

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the patties on the prepared baking sheet and bake 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, carefully flip the patties and bake for another 10 minutes until slightly crispy on the outside.

    You left out the step of when to add in the flax egg. Eek I’m going to guess it’s in the food processor when combining all the ingredients. Not in the mushroom mixture in the pan. Wish me luck I’m halfway there!

    I seem to be missing something….flax egg? What is that? I added 2 tbsp of ground flax soaked in water. It doesn’t say how many eggs. I’ll add one to the mixture. I hope that’s right.

      The flax egg is the ground flax and water mixture. There’s no real egg in the recipe (though adding an egg shouldn’t “ruin” the recipe). I’m so sorry that it wasn’t clear, I’ll add an extra note to the recipe. I hope you’ll enjoy the burgers! 🙂
