2 cups chopped mushrooms
1/2 cup old fashioned rolled oats
1/4 cup raw pumpkin seeds
2 carrots, grated
1 1/2 cups cooked black beans or 1 (15 ounce) can low sodium or no-salt-added black beans, drained
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon coriander
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
6 ounces (about 1 cup) ground organic turkey (see note for vegan option)


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Heat 1-2 tablespoons water in a small pan and saute mushrooms until tender and moisture has evaporated, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Grind oats and pumpkin seeds in a food processor. Add grated carrots, 3/4 of the beans and all of the spices and process until blended.

Spoon mixture into a mixing bowl and stir in sauteed mushrooms, remaining whole beans and ground turkey. Form into 7 medium sized patties.

Place patties on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or lightly wiped with olive oil. Bake for 40 minutes, turning once after 20 minutes.

Makes 7 medium burgers.

Serve on a small 100% whole grain roll or pita with sliced red onion, sliced tomato, lettuce and a healthy ketchup.

Note: To make without ground turkey, add an additional 1 1/2 cups beans.

I put extra spice in and still the patties were dry and tasteless.

I make the vegan option and really like it. And it's nice to have something I can freeze for a quick meal later.
