Black Bean Mushroom Melt


This one was inspired by an awesome vegan burger I had at 21st Amendment in SF. I’ve added my own twist by adding some cumin spice and mushrooms. It’s a homemade black bean patty topped with sautéed mushrooms and onions with Monterey Jack cheese on a fresh baguette. This is a protein-rich recipe great for fellow vegetarians or people looking for options on meatless Mondays!

Black Bean ‘Burger’

  • 1 (430g/15oz) can of black beans, mashed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2cup oatmeal
  • 1tsp cumin powder
  • Salt to Taste
  • Red Chili Powder to Taste

Saute chopped onions and garlic in olive oil. Combine all ingredients. You may need to add more oatmeal to get the right consistency. Form patties, and cook in olive oil on a skillet. This recipe makes six 6″ patties. They freeze great! 🙂
