Black Beans And Baby Bella Mushroom Burgers

Black beans and Baby Bella Mushroom burgers

  • Cooking Time: 10 minutes
  • Servings: 2
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • 1 cup baby bella mushrooms, chopped
  • 1 cup cooked black beans, rinsed and divided
  • 1 Large eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 Tbl Panko or Gluten Free Panko
  • 2 Tbl minced garlic
  • 3/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan *Look for vegetarian or vegan Parmesan cheese if you do not eat animal products
  • Olive oil
  1. In a large bowl add 1 cup of black beans and mash with a masher (chunks are OK).
  2. Next, add in the mushrooms and garlic
  3. Mix just until coated.
  4. Add in the egg, cheese and bread crumbs and mix gently with a large spoon until the mixture is combined.
  5. Set aside while you place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add in 2 Tbl of oil.
  6. Once the oil starts to shimmer (about a minute or two), using dampened hands (the mixture will stick to you if you don’t), scoop a 1/2 cup of mixture into the palm of your hand and gently shape into a burger all the while pressing together. The mixture should hold a burger shape. If it doesn’t add just a Tbl more of bread crumbs.
  7. Place in the oil and cook for 3-5 minutes per side or until golden brown and a crust has formed on each side.

5-6 carrots, peeled and thinly sliced 
4-5 stalks spring garlic or large scallions, thinly sliced 
3 tablespoons red wine vinegar 
2 teaspoons sugar 
¼ teaspoon kosher salt, plus more to taste 
freshly ground black pepper, to taste 
zest of ½ a lemon 

Thinly slice your carrots and your spring garlic or scallions. 
Toss them together in a bowl, then in a smaller bowl, whisk together your red wine vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, and lemon zest. 
Pour the mixture over the vegetables and toss to combine. 
Allow to sit in the refrigerator, covered or preferably, in an airtight container, for about an hour. 
Serve chilled or at room temperature, alone, with a protein, or on top of salad greens. 
This will keep well, and just start to taste better and better, for up to one week.
