  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for cooking burgers
  • 1 cup diced shiitake mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup minced scallions
  • 1/2 cup grated carrots
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin

2. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Add the mushrooms, scallions, carrots, cumin, and paprika, and cook, stirring until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add to bowl with beets.
3. Pulse cashews in a food processor to a fine powder. Add to bowl.
4. Pulse chickpeas in food processor to a thick paste. Add to bowl.
5. Add rice, salt, pepper, and mustard to bowl; mix well.
