  • 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 ounces mushrooms diced (white, baby bella, or crimini)
  • ½ red bell pepper diced
  • ½ small yellow onion diced

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the mushrooms, bell pepper, onion, and garlic to the skillet. Cook for 4-5 minutes or until starting to brown. Carefully blot the veggies with a paper towel to remove a bit of their moisture.

  • Transfer the mixture to a food processor along with the black beans and oats.
  • Pulse the mixture for about 30 seconds until well combined but not pureed.
