Place half of the thawed grains and mushroom blend in a food processor bowl along with chickpeas. Process about 1 minute or until incorporated, add onions and pulse an additional 30 seconds. Transfer grains to a bowl. Add remaining grains blend and stir to combine evenly. Portion mixture into 12 patties using a #8 portion scoop. Wrap individually and refrigerate or freeze until service.
Step 2
Combine beans and tomatoes in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, about 5 minutes. Add chipotle powder, cumin and masa flour. Stir until evenly combined. Add thawed grains and vegetable blend to the pot and cook for another 5 minutes. Adjust consistency with water if needed. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a holding container until service.
