- 1/4 cup walnuts
- 1 clove garlic minced
- 3/4 small onion finely chopped
- 1/2 cup mushrooms finely chopped
- 1/2 can (14 oz / 400 gram) black beans drained & rinsed
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup cooked brown rice
- 2 tsp tomato paste
- 1 tsp + 2 tbsp mustard divided
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1/2 tbsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Dash of cayenne & pepper
- 4 burger buns
- 2 tomatoes for topping
- Mixed greens for topping
- 1/4 small onion for topping
In a pan, dry toast the walnuts for 3-4 minutes until fragrant and golden brown, then set aside.
Put garlic, onion, and mushrooms in the same pan and sauté for 5-7 minutes until everything is soft, then put in a large bowl.
Add beans into the bowl to the onion, garlic, and mushroom mix and mash well with a wooden spoon.
Using a grinder or food processor, loosely grind the walnuts and oats, then add them to the bowl as well together with all other remaining ingredients except for the buns, the 1 tbsp mustard, and other toppings. Mash and mix until well combined.
Divide into 4 patties of around 1⁄2 inch thickness.
Heat the pan you used earlier over medium heat and add the patties once it is hot enough. Grill on both sides for around 5 minutes until well browned.
Let cool slightly, then assemble burgers by using (toasted) buns, patties, tomato, greens, onion, and mustard.
