Make a vegetarian kidney bean burger using kidney beans and mushrooms, with oats to hold it all together. These kidney bean burgers are vegetarian, but they do use an egg as a binder, so they're not vegan. In fact, one reviewer suggested adding an extra egg to the mix to make them a little less crumbly. 

If you find your kidney bean burgers turning out a bit crumby, here's some tips on how to make your veggie burgers less crumbly.


  • 1 medium carrot
  • 1/3 cup oats
  • 1 14 ounce can kidney beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup mushrooms
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 red or yellow bell pepper, diced small
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tbsp ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp garlic salt

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Process the carrot in a food processor until grated. Add the oats and beans and pulse a few times. You can also grate the carrot by hand if needed and then pulse it all together in a blender if you don't have a food processor. 
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and process until well combined but still slightly coarse.
  4. Chill this mixture, covered, in the refrigerator for at least 45 minutes then form into 4 - 6 patties.
  5. To cook your kidney bean burgers, set the oven to broil and place your kidney bean patties on a lightly greased baking tray or cookie sheet. 
  6. Broil for 5-6 minutes on each side. You can also cook these mushroom veggie burgers on your indoor or outdoor grill, or pan fry your patties in a bit of oil in a skillet over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.
