Place onion and mushrooms in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Add mince, breadcrumbs, herbs, tomato purée and salt and pepper to taste. Process for a few seconds, until mixture binds together but still has some texture.
Press handfuls of the mince mixture into patties using lightly floured hands.
Using a large frying pan, cook the burgers for 12 to 15 minutes, turning once, until evenly cooked.
