A healthy, super flavorful veggie burger that uses black beans and mushrooms as the main ingredients!  Really easy dinner idea and delicious.

  • Yield: 8 burgers 1x


  • 1 Tb canola oil
  • 1/2 Tb butter
  • 1 C finely chopped onion
  • 8 ounces baby portabella mushrooms, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 4 slices whole wheat bread, toasted
  • 1/2 jalapeno, seeded and finely minced
  • 115 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 ounces goat, feta or cheddar cheese, crumbled or shredded
  • 1/4 C chopped cilantro
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 8 english muffins, toasted


  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and cook until browned, about 5 minutes. Add the mushroom and garlic and cook until mushrooms have reduced and released their moisture, about 6 minutes. Add in the cumin and paprika then set aside to cool.
  2. Tear toasted bread into pieces and pulse in the food processor until crumbs form. Dump them into a large bowl. Add the mushroom mixture, beans, cheese, cilantro, salt and pepper to the processor and pulse. You do not want a smooth mixture, but you need small uniform pieces. Scoop the mixture into the bread crumbs and stir well to combine.
  3. Using a level ice cream scoop, divide the mixture into 8 even portions and form them into patties. Place them in a hot skillet or electric griddle brushed with oil. Cook for 5 minutes on each side until crisp. Serve immediately with your favorite toppings. You can try avocado, salsa, sour cream, mayo, lettuce, tomato, red onion, cheese.
