Caprese Veggie Burger

Notes

This burger is dairy-free, but if you're eating cheese, you can add a slice of mozzarella on top.

Caprese Veggie Burger

Ingredients

For the patty:
15 ounces cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
1 1/2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
2 cloves garlic
1 cup fresh basil leaves
1 egg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 Roma tomatoes, diced into small pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil

For the burger:
6 whole-wheat buns
2 Roma tomatoes, sliced
6 large basil leaves
6 ounces fresh mozzarella, sliced

Directions

  1. Add beans, mushrooms, oats, garlic, 1 cup basil leaves (save the 6 basil leaves for the topping), egg, and salt to a food processor, and puree until smooth. The consistency will be like very thick hummus.
  2. Stir in the diced tomatoes.
  3. Place a pan on medium heat, and add 1 tablespoon of oil.
  4. Use a large spoon to scoop the mixture onto the hot pan, using the back of the spoon to form it into a flat and round patty shape. Repeat 2 more times to make 3 patties.
  5. Cook for 5 minutes, or until the bottom is slightly brown, then flip and cook another 5 minutes.
  6. Make 3 more patties using the remaining oil and bean and mushroom mixture.
  7. Serve burgers on a whole-wheat bun with a a few fresh basil leaves and a couple slices of tomato. Finish by adding the mozzarella cheese on top.
