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 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

  • If you do not have a food processor, you can also grate the carrot by hand if needed and then pulse it all together in a blender.

Recipe Variation

  • 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 to 4 minutes on each side.
