Burger Bowls

Burger Bowls


These easy bean burgers can be made without a food processor! You can also switch up the type of beans you use making these totally customizable. I’ve chosen a bed of greens and a higher protein vegetable: mushrooms, to round out the macros as best as possible. However you could also eat this delicious burger patty in your favourite bun! Depending on if you’re gluten free or not, some whole wheat buns have upwards of 8g protein per serving!


Recipe notes:

As mentioned above, feel free to switch in your favourite beans. From a macronutrient stand point, a majority of beans have a very similar macro profile.

I’ve offered the individual macros for just the burger patties so you can create your own burger night with them!

If you can’t find a thick vegan greek yogurt, then use the thickest one you can find and adjust the amount of pickle juice you use. This will allow you to achieve the right dressing texture for you.

Recipe, Burgers:

Chop the onion into thin slices and the mushrooms into quarters.

Bring a pan to medium heat and add 1 tbsp oil.

Add mushrooms and onions with a pinch of salt.

Cook together until onions are caramelized and mushrooms are nice and browned, 15-20 minutes.

Slice the tomato and pickles into bite size pieces.



Add vegan greek yogurt, ketchup, mustard, date syrup and 1/4 cup pickle juice to a bowl. Whisk together until smooth. Depending on the thickness of your yogurt you may want more pickle juice to thin. Plate into 4 bowls or containers and enjoy!
