  1. Heat the oil in a pan and add the onion. Fry for a few minutes before adding the mushrooms. Stir and fry until browned. Transfer the onion and mushrooms to a food processor bowl. Add the beans, rice, soy sauce, and spice mix. Process until a sticky mixture with a slightly coarse texture is formed.
  2. If the mixture is too soft, add some lentil flour and gently mix. Taste and adjust seasoning.
  3. Moisten your hands and form 8 patties. A suitable-sized cutter can also be used.
  4. Lightly oil a pan and fry the patties for a few minutes on each side.
  5. For serving: Place a patty in a lightly toasted bun, add vegetables and preferred sauces, and serve.
