Introduction: Black Bean & Mushroom Burger

This has got to be my favorite so far.  It grilled up firm with a good flavor that was not overpowering.

  • 6 oz of mushrooms (sliced, whole, portabello or mixed), chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
  • 2 Tbs Montreal steak seasoning
  • 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 Tbs nutritional yeast (optional)
  • 1-1/4 cup or bread crumbs
  1. Get your grill going to a medium-hot fire.
  2. Heat 1 Tbs oil or vegetable broth in a saute pan on medium high.
  3. Add chopped onions, mushrooms, garlic, Montreal steak seasoning, salt and pepper to taste and saute until mushrooms release their liquid. (approximately 5 minutes)
  4. Spoon the mixture into a food processor, add the beans and process until well mixed.
  5. Stir in nutritional yeast and bread crumbs.
  6. Form into patties.
  7. Spray patties with oil to prevent sticking to the grill.
  8. Place on grill and heat  until each side is firm and crispy (approximately 5 minutes on each side)
  9. Remove and serve with favorite condiments.
  • I use a Ninja chopper to chop the onions, mushrooms, and garlic together - easy and quick
  • If you like a spicier burger,  add cumin, cilantro, or cayenne pepper  to the mix.
