Italian Cannellini Bean Burgers

A while ago, I made Greek Black Bean Sliders . It was my first foray in making a non-meat burger and I really liked them; however, I haven’t made them since. So I decided to try another version with these Italian Cannellini Bean Burgers and OH MY GOODNESS…even better!

Italian Cannellini Bean Burger

This version had all of my favorite flavors wrapped up in one neat little package. Spinach. Garlic. Tomatoes. Mushrooms. Rosemary. How can you go wrong? These burgers are so simple to make too. Just mix all of the ingredients together, fry them in a minuscule amount of olive oil and in 20 minutes, lunch or dinner is served!

I like how flavorful and filling these are on their own served with a side salad. You can even make these ahead of time and take for lunch as they also reheat beautifully. ~Enjoy!

    The flavors of these burgers sound really good–I bet they go together nicely!

      They did! A friend of mine also asked if she could substitute chick peas and any bean would work wonderfully.

    These look wonderful! A great change from black beans or chickpeas!

    Hi Carrie! I was excited to try this recipe because I opened a can of cannellini beans by mistake and needed a quick recipe other than soup (wasn’t in the mood for that). It is an easy recipe except the burgers fell apart as I tried to flip them. What did I do wrong? They still taste good just not as pretty as I’d like for serving. Thanks!!

      Hi Peggy, I’ve had that happen to me before if the beans were too wet so I just added a bit more oats until the mixture adhered together better. I’m sorry they fell apart on you and hope you’ll try them again!
