Power Bean Burger - Vegan Burger Recipe

follow me on



  1. Drain the beans from the can in separate strainers and measure out 4 OZ of each. Rinse under running water. Reserve 1 T of each for later.
  2. Heat 2 T olive oil in a pan on medium heat and sauté onions and garlic. Add in chopped mushrooms, large pinch of salt, pepper and chilli flakes and cook off the mushrooms. Cook until mushrooms become darker and most of the water has evaporated.
  3. Add in the beans and sauté for 3-4 minutes, add in chopped spinach and cook 1-2 more minutes. Increase heat to evaporate most of the moisture from the spinach.
  4. Let mixture cool for 20-30 minutes in the refrigerator. Once cooled, transfer mixture to a food processor and pulse 5-6 times to achieve a textured patty or puree for a smooth patty. Transfer to a bowl and mix in the reserved bowls.
  5. Evenly divide in the mixture in two halves and roll into a ball. Using the technique showed in the video, pat out into a patty large enough to fit your buns. Sprinkle on the oats on either side.
  6. Transfer patties onto a plate, cover with plastic wrap and chill for a further 15 minutes until firm. In the meanwhile prepare your toppings. To create an avocado fan, take half an avocado, and cut into two.
  7. For each half, turn the avocado such that the curve is facing away from you. Using a paring knife make 5 cuts lengthwise, making sure to stop the cut about 80% about the way. Using your hands, spread out avocado into a fan.
  8. Heat a pan on medium heat and add 2 T olive oil. Using a spatula, transfer the patties onto the pan. Cook for 5-6 minutes on both sides or until oats are golden brown and crispy.
  9. Cut buns in half and toast under a broiled until golden brown. You may also apply butter and toast the buns on a pan. Apply toppings as desired and serve hot with oven baked crispy fries (you can find my recipe here) and enjoy!

Hey everyone! I'm back with another beginner-friendly recipe, and you're going to love this power bean burger for the ultimate vegan dinner recipe!

Going through my recipes in this series, I realized that I had no vegetarian options! To make sure everyone is included in making amazingly yummy and beginner-friendly recipes, I thought a bean burger would be a great way to kick that off! I have to say these are absolutely scrumptious! I love the flavours from all the vegetables, and these don't even taste like beans! But if you do want that bean taste you can blend the patty to a thicker consistency so get that goodness!


The patties are simply pan-fried to a crisp perfection. Serve with your favourite toppings and enjoy this  wonderful vegetarian dinner!

I would love to hear your feedback
