  • 8 ounces portobello mushrooms - I used sliced
  • 1/4 cup red onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or chopped fine
  • 15 ounces chickpeas, 1 can, drained and then patted dry
  • 1 cup pecans, diced small
  • 1 1/2 cup instant oats or rolled oats ground small
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  • 1 tablespoon tahini or almond butter


  • Add 2 tablespoons of water to a large skillet.  Raise to medium high and add the sliced portobello mushrooms.  Sauté for 5 minutes.
  • Add the onion and sauté for another 5 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook 2 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat and add to a food processor.  Also add the chickpeas, pecans.  Add the oats if they are rolled and not instant.
  • Process with a few pulses to have all of the ingredients in small pieces. No chunks.
  • Add to a large mixing bowl and add the hoisin sauce, and tahini.  If you are using instant oats add that now too.
  • Mix well together.  You can even use your hands and work it very well together.
  • Form into six patties.  You can also press them into a round form such as an English Muffin tin round or a pancake ring.  One that is about 3" across.
  • Fry in oil on one side until crispy browned and then carefully flip and brown on the other side.  Ready for serving!


I served these delicious patties on whole wheat buns with hoisin sauce on the bottom bun and vegan mayo on the patty.  Then curly green lettuce and a slice of red onion.
