Vegan and Gluten-free Mushroom and Beans Burgers

Did you know that mushrooms and beans can be transformed into a cheat food?

No? Me neither. 😀

Burgers: the mere thought of it is enough to make you drool, am I right? Fret not if you’re a vegan, gluten-sensitive, or vegetarian! Our Vegan and Gluten-free Mushroom Bean Burger Recipe is a vegan ode to our favorite classic and is here to sate your cravings.

Aside from jackfruit, mushrooms are likewise used as a meat replacement in the vegan world, since its texture is similar to ground lean meat.

This gluten-free and vegan mushroom burger packs a lot of flavor and it might surprise you at how scrumptious in tastes, considering that all parts of it are vegetables.

The mushrooms alone provide a solid flavor and texture base, but the addition of pinto beans also gives this burger extra fiber and protein.


• 1 tablespoon canola oil (or vegetable oil)

• 2 cloves organic garlic (minced)

• 1/2 teaspoon cumin

• 3/4 cup organic mushrooms (fresh, diced small)

• 1 15 oz. can organic pinto beans

• 1 teaspoon organic parsley

• salt to taste

• black pepper to taste

• 2 tablespoons oil

• 1 small organic onion (white or yellow, diced)




1. First, sauté the onions and garlic in canola oil or vegetable oil for 3 minutes, or until the onions caramelize a bit.

2. Then, add the cumin and the chopped mushrooms and cook or until mushrooms are done. You can add a bit more oil if it’s a bit dry. Set the onion and mushroom mixture aside.

3. Next, use a potato masher or a fork to mash the beans until they turn into a paste. You can also pulse them in a food processor until smooth.

4. In a large bowl, combine the beans with the onion and mushroom mixture, then add the parsley, salt, and pepper.

5. Shape the mixture into patties about one inch thick. Be sure to get just the right amount or it could be quite tricky to cook; If you make them too thin, they may either crumble or fall apart, or if you make them too thick, it will be more difficult to get them to cook throughout.

6. Lastly, heat two tablespoons of oil and cook each patty until the mushroom burgers are done. If you have a burger grill, you can use it too; the charred patties and the smoky flavor will even make your veggie burger almost like the real thing.

Bon appétit!
