These Paleo Mushroom Burgers are an amazing meatless option for burger night. Full of veggies and flavor, these burgers freeze well so you can have them on hand for an easy vegetarian weeknight meal. These veggie burgers are free from dairy, grains and beans!


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 medium sweet potato (about 9 ounces), peeled and sliced thinly
  • 16 ounces mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt, more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, more to taste
  • 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 °F.
  2. Place sweet potato on a sheet-tray lined with parchment paper. Toss in a teaspoon of olive oil, one teaspoon sea salt, and one teaspoon pepper. Roast for 15-20 minutes, or until fork-tender.
  3. In a medium skillet over high heat, cook mushrooms and onions until softened and all the liquid has evaporated, about 10 minutes.
  4. Let sweet potatoes and mushrooms cool until no longer very hot.
  5. Add add mushrooms mixture, sweet potato, walnuts, spices, salt, pepper, almond flour, egg and chia seeds. Pulse a few times until just combined, make sure not to over-process the mixture. There should be pea like-sized bits of sweet potato.
  6. Line a sheet tray with parchment paper and bring the oven temperature down to 350 °F.
  7. Shape the sweet potato and mushroom mixture into 6 one-inch patties.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes, then flip the burgers and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve warm with toppings of choice!


They will keep well for up to 3 months in the freezer. To reheat it: place on a parchment lined sheetpan and bake in at 375ºF oven until heated through, about 15-20 minutes. This could also work in the toasted. I haven’t tried it in the microwave, but it might reheat ok in that too.
