beanburger

noun; analogy
a vegetarian burger containing a bean patty rather than a beef patty
 
This term has likely formed and gained popularity within the past decade due to the increasing vegetarian population in the US. With the increase of those who do not eat meat, alternate versions of popular meat-containing foods have been created to provide vegetarians with a wide variety of foods and flavors. A bean burger is used to describe a burger with a patty made from beans rather than beef.
Etymology : This term is analogous to the word hamburger. Despite the root of hamburger being “hamburg,” the ham is commonly clipped and the suffix –burger remains. Different roots, such as cheese or bean, are analogously placed before the –burger suffix to specify the components of the burger.
