Baked white bean, mushroom and sweet potato veggie burger recipe
- 1 (14.5 ounce) can cannellini beans (white beans), drained and rinsed
- 1 large sweet potato, cooked and cool to the touch
- 1 cup diced cremini mushrooms
- 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 3/4 cup unseasoned breadcrumbs, more as needed
- 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- Slider buns (optional)
- Diced tomato, avocado, onion and shredded lettuce for topping
- Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and set it aside.
- To a large bowl, add the beans. Slice the sweet potato in 1/2 horizontally, scoop out the flesh, and add it to the bowl.
- Mash together the beans and sweet potato until almost smooth. I like to keep the mixture slightly lumpy.
- Add the mushrooms and mustard, and mix to combine.
- Add the breadcrumbs, thyme, salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Use a spoon to combine the mixture.
- If you think you need more breadcrumbs, then add in about 1/4 of a cup more, and stir well.
- Shape the mixture into 4-inch patties about 1-inch thick.
- Place the patties on the baking sheet, and bake for 30 minutes, flipping the patties halfway through the cooking time.
- Serve on slider buns with your favorite burger toppings.
