  • Yield: 4 1x


  • 12oz cauliflower florets (or 3 cups of cauliflower “rice”)
  • 1 tbsp unrefined coconut oil, divided
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • 115.5oz can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 scallion, sliced
  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro
  • 1 tsp chili lime seasoning (you can also use chili powder)
  • 1/2 cup corn meal
  • 4 hamburger buns
  • For the Avocado Spread:
  • 1 Hass avocado
  • 2 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Sriracha or green dragon hot sauce (to taste)
  • For the Mustard Spread:
  • 2 tbsp brown mustard
  • 1 tbsp vegan mayo


  1. Place the cauliflower florets in the food processor. Pulse until it starts to look like rice (skip this step if you’re using pre-made cauliflower “rice”)
  2. Heat 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil in a large skillet. Add cauliflower, salt, garlic powder, cumin and black pepper. Stir well and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside
  3. Using the same skillet, heat the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil. Add beans, scallions and cilantro, mix well and cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes. Transfer to the food processor and pulse until creamy
  4. Add beans to cooked cauliflower. Add chili lime seasoning (or chili powder) and corn meal. Mix with a wooden spoon until well combined and let sit for 10 minutes. In the meantime, preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil well coated with cooking spray
  5. Working with approximately 1/2 cup of mixture, form 4 burgers (you can use a large ice cream scoop). Place them on the lined baking sheet and bake for 45 minutes
  6. In the meantime, prepare the avocado and mustard spreads. Mash the avocado with a fork. Add lemon juice, salt and hot sauce (if using) and mix well. For the mustard spread, whisk together the mustard and vegan mayo until well incorporated. Refrigerate until ready to use
  7. To assemble the burgers, spread mustard mayo on the bottom of a bun, place the burger on top, and spread avocado over it. You can also add your favorite fixings!
