Yield: Makes 8 burgers
This is an exceptionally “meaty” veggie burger, thanks to the deep, savory flavor in the mushrooms and soy sauce, the richness of the cashews, and the pleasantly chewy texture of the rice. Even meat-eaters will be satisfied by this one. For a match made in heaven, top it with Miso Mayonnaise.

Make Ahead Tips
Wrapped well in plastic, the shaped, uncooked burgers keep in the fridge for a few days. You can also freeze them for up to 3 months. Frozen burgers may be a bit more crumbly in the pan, but they’re still more delicious than the ones from a box. Cook frozen burgers straight from the freezer a little lower and a little longer.
Arrowroot is a white, flavorless powder used to thicken puddings and sauces. It’s often used as a vegetarian alternative to gelatin. It works similarly to the breadcrumbs in other burger recipes but is gluten-free. Look for arrowroot in the baking aisle of the supermarket.
These tasted divine, but like others mention here, they did not bind at all. Despite cooking the mushroom very well, these were way too wet. I suggest cooking the mushrooms as much as possible to remove the moisture, and I think adding breadcrumbs is a must.FC recipes are usually so well developed that it really surprised me that these fell apart. But I glopped the patties in my pan, did my best to flip them. I then lined them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment and put them in the oven at 350 for about 1/2 hour, which helped dry them out.I made these for a casual gathering with friends and got distracted and forgot the miso mayo...but will definitely do so next time.
These burger patties have a rich, complex flavor this is very satisfying, but they were a mess. They wouldn't hold together very well as patties on buns. I melted a slice of provolone on each one for added protein. Won't make again.
These are my family's favorite veggie burger. They definitely live up to the Unami name, have a hearty texture and a complex flavor. You can cook them, freeze them and then reheat in the microwave for 1:40 a burger. The first time I used corn starch instead of the arrowroot and it was fine.
tasted great ! It was difficult to keep the burger together in the shape of a burger however ... will try it again with a different binder ...
