I would love to call this a burger, but can’t wrap my head around that word when this isn’t a “Hamburger.” And to call it anything other than a “patty” would otherwise be wrong, correct?? A meatless patty at that. Would you call it a veggie burger if it only has maybe two veggies (Onion & Mushrooms) in it? I don’t know… let’s just say I made Black Bean & Mushroom patties for a Meatless Friday and they turned out über delicious!
I have tried countless veggie ‘burgers’ and picked up a few tricks at making these patties and lets say the key to your patty would be if the mixture looks too wet, add more breadcrumbs and/or oats. It is a must if you want to form a patty that doesn’t fall apart when you are eating it. And if for some reason it looks to dry and crumbly add more moisture. You need to play it by ear and go from there.
This recipe will give you 6 rather nice sized patties for your meal. You can either enjoy them on a bun or as I did on toasted Gluten Free Rye Bread. Either way, you are sure to enjoy!
