For the Burgers

  • 1 teaspoon neutral-flavored oil
  • 2 cups mushrooms (about 5 ounces) coarsely chopped
  • 1 14- ounce can black beans
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes coarsely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Better Than Bouillon Vegetarian No Beef Base
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Roased Garlic Aioli

  • 1/2 cup cashews soaked in water for 2 hours, drained and rinsed
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon Better Than Bouillon Roasted Garlic Base
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

For Serving, Optional

  • 6 whole wheat burger buns
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • Lettuce leaves
  • Pickle slices


  • Preheat oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring frequently, for about 10 minutes, or until they’ve browned.
  • Place the mushrooms, black beans, brown rice, rolled oats, sun-dried tomatoes, bouillon, and spices in a food processor fitted with an s-blade. Pulse until chopped and well mixed. You may need to stop and scrape down the sides of the food processor once or twice. It’s okay if the mixture is a little chunky.
  • Divide the mixture into 6 equal pieces and shape each one into a patty. If you have one, a ring mold will help shape them, but forming patties by hand is completely fine.
  • Bake the burgers for 10-12 minutes. Flip them and bake for an addition 8-12 minutes. They should be golden brown and firm.
  • While the burgers are cooking, mix together the aioli ingredients in a food processor or high-speed blender. If the mixture seems too thick, add a little more water, a tablespoon at a time.
  • Serve the burgers on whole wheat buns with the Garlic Aioli and your favorite toppings.
