How to Make It
    To make the patties
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Spread the mushrooms, black beans, and onion on a rimmed baking sheet. Salt lightly and sprinkle with thyme. Roast for 35 minutes, flipping everything after 15 to 20 minutes. Remove the sheet from the oven and let cool. Reduce the temperature to 140°F (60°C).
  2. In a food processor, combine the cooled toasted vegetables and roasted red bell pepper. Pulse a few times into smaller pieces. Transfer to a large bowl and add the remaining patty ingredients (through salt). Taste and adjust the seasoning with pepper and more salt if needed. Refrigerate for 15 minutes, or up to 24 hours covered.
  3. Divide the mixture into 4 equal portions and shape each into a patty. Place a skillet over medium-high heat and add a drizzle of vegetable oil or 1 tablespoon (14 g) ghee. Fry each patty for 2 to 4 minutes per side. Lightly season with salt and pepper.
  4. Assemble the burgers between the buns with the toppings.
