Ingredients
  • 14 baby bella mushrooms, thinly sliced (approximately 6 cups)

  • 1 ½ Tablespoon ground coriander

  • 1 ½ teaspoon cumin

  • 2 teaspoon ground dried ginger

  • ¼ teaspoon salt 

  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ - ½ teaspoon cayenne

How to Make a Vegetarian Mushroom Burger
  1. Sauté mushrooms and all spices in a non-stick pan on medium low heat. Mushrooms will darken and soften. Continue cooking until the liquid evaporates, and the mushrooms are coated in a thick sauce., approximately 12 - 15 minutes.  Set aside to cool.

  2. Chop garlic and parsley in the bowl of a food processor and then add chickpeas and pulse to combine. Next, add mushrooms mixture, oats, tahini and soy sauce and process until a smooth mixture forms, scraping down the sides as needed. 

  3. Measure ½ cup of mixture and shape into patties. Place patties on a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

  4. Bake burgers in a preheated 375° oven for 20 minutes. 

To eat later, freeze burgers and reheat when frozen in a 350° oven for 15 minutes.
