Delicious and Nutritious: How to Make Mushroom and Walnut Burgers at Home


  • 1 medium or 1/2 large onion 

  • 2 cloves of garlic 

  • 300g of Markwood Mushroom's Oyster Mushrooms (preferably blue or chocolate oyster mushrooms) 

  • 1/2 a can of black beans  

  • 1/3 cup of Panko crumbs 

  • 1 egg (or bean juice for a vegan option) 

  • A good splash of mushroom soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, or regular soy sauce will also work.  

  • Salt and pepper to taste 

  • Olive oil for cooking 

  • Burger rolls and accompaniments of your choice 


  1. Prepare the Mushroom Mix: 

  • In a food processor, blitz the onions, garlic, mushrooms, and walnuts until finely chopped. 

  • Transfer the mix to a frying pan and cook over medium heat for 8-10 minutes, or until browned and not too wet. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. This process is important to get a nice consistency and to break down the Chitin

  • Once cooked, transfer the mix to a bowl and allow it to cool. 

  1. Prepare the Beans: 

  • Using the same food processor (no need to clean it), blitz the beans until smooth. 

  1. Combine Ingredients: 

  • To the cooled mushroom mixture, add the blended beans, Panko crumbs, egg (or bean juice), mushroom soy sauce, and season with salt and pepper. Mix until well combined. 

  • Place the mixture in the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight to firm up. 

  1. Form and Cook the Burgers: 

  • Remove the mixture from the fridge and, using damp or floured hands, shape into burger patties. 

  • Heat a bit of olive oil in a pan over medium heat and cook the patties until they are browned and heated through, about 4-5 minutes per side. 

  1. Serve: 

  • Serve the burgers on rolls with your favourite accompaniments like lettuce, tomato, and sauces.
