Mushroom Patties in Pita

Mushroom Patties

400g mushrooms, finely chopped
1 small green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 tsp curcuma
1 tsp dried basil
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley
50g flour
3 tbsp breadcrumbs
Olive oil, for frying

Pita bread
Tomato sauce

1) Heat olive oil in a large saucepan. Add onion and bell pepper and saute until softened, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and mushrooms. Cover, reduce the heat and let simmer until the mushrooms begin to release liquid. Add curcuma, dried basil, dried oregano, smoked paprika, salt and parsley. Uncover, increase the heat to medium-high and leave to simmer until the all the liquid is absorbed. Stir occasionally.

2) Remove from heat and let cool 10 minutes. Add eggs, flour and breadcrumbs.

3) Heat olive oil in a skillet. Add a tablespoon of mixture and flatten a little. Fry until golden brown on both sides. 

4) Cut pita in half. Stuff with lettuce, sliced tomato and cucumber. Put one or two patties (depending on size)  inside and top with pasta sauce. 


  1. Sandwihes are the best!! It's true, you can put everythink you're craving for in a sandwich. Well, not everything, but...

    I love veggie-burgers, or patties like these, I really have to try your recipes!! But, well, I need a change, I CAN'T use pepper.
    They have nicest colour, and, mushrooms, I must try it!!

    Delicious photos ;)

    1. Well pepper gives a nice flavour but if you can't eat it you can simply add more mushrooms or an additional onion instead. Thanks :))

  2. Sandwiches are one of my all-time favourite meals. These mushroom patties are the perfect stuffing for a healthy pita. Thanks for sharing!


  3. Can I grill them instead for more healthy option. And if i want to substitute the flour with something gluten free what can i use.

    1. You could probably try grilling them but the result will be different. You can also substitute gluten free flour like oat flour but again, the taste will differ. Good luck with experimenting!
