Tasty Mushroom Burger (Vegan, Gluten Free Burger)

Tasty Mushroom Burger, naturally Vegan and Gluten Free burger, is toothsome and delicious one of the best results in burger recipes. The oats, nuts, and rice flour etc help to form well without falling apart. If you do not eat fungi, check out the Lentil Loaf and Black Bean burgers recipes for patties without mushrooms.


All the vegetable ingredients maybe finely chopped or grated by hand or by using a food processor. I used the food processor for finely chopping all of the ingredients which made it quick and easy; as the last step, I pulsed the sunflower seeds and oats and that cleaned the bowl nicely - an added bonus!

Have fun with the seasonings: change them according to your personal preferences.

These burgers freeze well; for best taste, use them within 3 months.

12 Burgers


1 lb Mushrooms, finely chopped
1/2 medium Red Onion, finely chopped
2-4 Tbsp Parsley, finely chopped
2 medium Carrots, finely chopped or grated
1-2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 Jalapeño chile, cored and minced
1/2 cup raw Sunflower Seeds Or Walnuts, coarsely ground
1/2 cup Rolled Oats (GF), coarsely ground
1/2 cup Rice Flour
1/2 tsp ground Turmeric
1 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 Tbsp Chile Powder
1 Tbsp Tamari, Shoyu, or Soy Sauce (GF)
Salt, Pepper, to taste

Oil for coating the pan

To Serve:
Homemade Gravy
Buns, Bread (GF)
Onion Slices
Tomato Slices
Pickle slices
Vegan Mayo


Prepare all the vegetables (see notes above) and place them in a large bowl as they are done.

Prepare the sunflower seeds and oats (see notes above) and add to the bowl.

Add all the spices, herbs, and seasonings.

Mix in the rice flour thoroughly; the mixture should hold together when formed into a ball or patty. If too wet, one or two more tablespoons of rice flour maybe added.

Heat a skillet (non-stick works well for this) and coat the pan with a thin film of oil. Form the mushroom mixture into patties and cook on low-medium heat until both sides are browned.

Alternately, the burgers maybe arranged on a parchment lined baking sheet, lightly brushed with oil and baked in a 400-450 F oven for about 20-30 minutes or until lightly browned. Flip the patties after 15 minutes.

Serve hot with homemade gravy or burger style with toasted buns/bread and lettuce, tomato, and condiments.
