Blended Mushroom Burger

By: Brenda Langton

The Blended Burger, in partnership with The Mushroom Council, features chopped cultivated mushrooms blended with ground beef at a 30/70 ratio to cut back on sodium and cholesterol, while boosting vitamins and flavor. Not to mention, because mushrooms require minimal resources to grow, a Blended Burger is more Earth Friendly–especially if you’re using local meat from the farmers market!

Ingredients

Method

Heat olive oil in a pan and sauté garlic and onions on medium low heat for about 3 minutes. Add the mushrooms, salt and pepper and cook over medium heat 3-4 minutes. Add the soy sauce and cook until liquid is gone. Cool.

In a large bowl, combine the mushroom mixture with the beef, jalepeno (if using) and chive. Mix well. Shape into 5 burgers or smaller ones.

Grill the burgers on high, direct heat to the desired doneness, between 5-8 minutes per side, depending on the thickness of the burgers and how hot your grill is.
