Epic Veg Burger
We wanted a burger that was packed with veg…but still felt a bit naughty. So here's our take on the classic burger…super indulgent and delicious.
- 400 g kidney beans
- 1 onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 150 g Oyster mushroom any kind of mushrooms will work!
- 4 tbsp Tamari
- 100 g breadcrumbs
- 3 tbsp nutritional yeast
- Favourite buns
- Vegan Mayonnaise
- Spicy Pepper Pesto
- Lettuce Leaves
- Vegan Cheese
- Lettuce shredded, for extra naughtiness!
- Caramelised Onion
- Avocado slices
Drain and rinse the beans. Peel and finely chop the onion and garlic. Roughly chop the mushrooms.
Put 3 tablespoons of water into a frying pan on a high heat. Once hot, add the onion and garlic and cook for 1-2 minute, stirring regularly. Add the mushrooms into the pan and cook for a further minute. Now add the tamari, and stir fry for 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.
In a mixing bowl, add the breadcrumbs, beans and the nutritional yeast and mix well.
When the mushrooms are done, add them into the bowl and mix. Leave to cool for a minute. Using your hands or a wooden spoon mash and mix so that well mixed. Form this mixture into patties, making sure to really compress them so as to remove as much moisture as possible.
The patties are now ready to cook. You can either fry them in the pan for 2 minutes on each side till they go golden or grill them in the oven at 180C/F/gas mark and they are also great grilled on the barbecue!
Serve in your favourite bun bun with whatever tickles your fancy! We went a bit of everything…pesto, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, gherkins and for real indulgence…caramelised onions. ENJOY, this one is epic!!
