Mushrooms are surprisingly similar in taste and texture to meat when cooked, and this mushroom burger recipe may just surprise you with how tasty it is. While mushrooms provide plenty of flavor and texture, the addition of pinto beans makes this veggie burger recipe high in fiber and protein too. This mushroom burger recipe is both vegetarian and vegan as well as gluten-free.


  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 green onions, diced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 cup diced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 15 ounce can pinto beans
  • 1 tsp parsley
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • oil for frying


Sautee the onions and garlic in olive oil for 3 to 5 minutes, until onions are soft. Add the green onions, cumin and mushrooms and cook for another 5 minutes, until mushrooms are cooked. Set aside.

Mash the beans with a fork or a potato masher, or process in a food processor until well mashed.

Add the mushrooms to the beans and add parsley, salt and pepper. Stir until well combined.

Shape the mixture into patties. Heat about two tablespoons of olive oil and cook each patty until the veggie burgers are done, about 3 minutes on each side.

This is a great recipe. The taste is awesome! However, as many others have mentioned, it does not hold together in a patty very well. I added bread crumbs. Next time I will definitely add crumbs as well as more beans. (And maybe use less oil)
