Recipe – Black Bean Walnut Turkey Tail Burgers

By Tammie Samuel 

We are happy to share this recipe shared by Tammie Samuel to cook a Black Bean Walnut Burger recipe!

These patties can also be rolled into bean balls to go with your favourite pasta sauce on those meat-free Mondays. The oat flour gives these burgers a satisfying crunchy coating. I enjoy them on their own, drizzled with tahini and topped with organic salsa, and a dark leafy side salad, but you can enjoy these healthy burgers on whole wheat buns, and homemade air-fried potatoes too!

Black Bean Walnut Turkey Tail Burgers ingredients:

1 (19oz) can organic black beans, drained and rinsed

1/2 cup. cooked & packed brown wild rice

1/2 cup. shiitake mushrooms, chopped; stems removed (other mushrooms work fine too)

1 flax egg (which is 1 tbsp. flax meal + 3 tbsp. water, sit for 5 min)

1/4 cup. onion, diced

1/3 cup. raw unsalted walnuts crunched into smaller pieces (I just crunch them in my hands)

1-1/2 tbsp. olive oil

1/2 tbsp. soy sauce

2 tbsp. oat flour

2 tbsp. nutritional yeast

1 tsp. smoked paprika

1/2 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. onion powder

1 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. sea salt

1/2 tsp. Turkey Tail Mushroom Powder from Organic Mushrooms Canada

In a large bowl, place the beans and mash lightly with a fork, just until you reach a coarse texture. Add the cooked rice, shiitake mushrooms, flax egg, onion, walnuts, olive oil, soy sauce, oat flour, nutritional yeast, spices, and turkey tail powder.

Form into patties (I find wetting my hands makes it easier to make the burgers, as it will be very sticky). Place burgers on a lightly olive oil-greased baking sheet and bake at 375 for about 20 minutes, or until you see that crispy coating. Flip once. Enjoy!
