Pear Walnut Black Bean Burger



  • 1 onion, diced
  • Oil for cooking
  • ¼ cup toasted walnuts
  • ½ cup quick oats, divided
  • 3 tbsp Luv The Grub Pear Walnut Chutney
  • 1 clove garlic, mined
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 ¼ cup cooked black beans, divided* 
  • ¼ cup cooked brown short grain rice (aka sushi rice)


  • Brioche burger buns
  • Mayonnaise
  • Extra Pear Walnut Chutney
  • Sliced pear
  • Arugula 
  • Sliced brie cheese


    1. Heat about 1 tsp of cooking oil in a non-stick skillet and cook onion until soft and slightly  charred.
    2. In a food processor, pulse together cooked onion, walnuts, ¼ cup oats, chutney, garlic, salt,  pepper, and ¾ cup beans until a paste is formed.
    3. Add the remaining oats, beans, and rice and pulse until just incorporated. This step can also  be hand mixed.
    4. Shape 1/3 cup portions of the mixture to form 5 to 6 patties.
    5. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then lightly brush the parchment with oil.  Arrange shaped patties on top, cover, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, ideally overnight. 6. Cook patties in a well-oiled skillet over medium heat for 3 to 4 minutes per side, or until  crispy and browned. You may add the brie cheese on top of the patty after flipping to get it  melty.
    6. To assemble, spread mayonnaise and Pear Walnut Chutney on warmed buns. Layer with a  cooked patty, brie cheese, arugula, and pear.
