Italian Cannellini Bean Burgers

By Carrie's Experimental Kitchen

This Italian Cannellini Bean Burger has all my favorite flavors wrapped up in one neat little package: Spinach, garlic, tomatoes, mushrooms, rosemary, how can you go wrong? You can even make these ahead of time and take for lunch as they also reheat beautifully.

Serving Size: 6 Prep Time: 10 mins Total Time: 20 mins


  • 1 15 oz. can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained

  • ½ cup old fashioned oats

  • 2 Tbsp Pecorino Romano cheese, grated

  • 1 scallion, chopped½ cup baby spinach1

  • Tbsp fresh rosemary, chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 2 plum tomatoes

  • 2 white button mushrooms, cleaned

  • 1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Add the beans, oats and cheese to your food processor and pulse 3-4 times leaving some of the beans somewhat in tack; then place the mixture in a bowl.

  2. In the same food processor, combine the scallions, spinach, rosemary, garlic, tomatoes and mushrooms; then pulse until the mixture is smooth. Add the mixture to the beans and mix well.

  3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick saute pan. Form six balls with the bean mixture and flatten.

  4. Fry each bean burger 3-5 minutes per side and drain on paper towels to remove any excess oil.
