Mushroom Burger

by Krista Davis on September 25, 2013

A mushroom burger makes for a healthy, low-calorie, and quick meal in my home. These are great for a tasty vegetarian meal that any meat eater will enjoy.

The first time I made this we were about half way through with our burgers (after a minute of eating) when my husband looked at me and said, “You already took a picture, right? Because you have to write about these.” When I replied with , “No,” he stopped eating and says, “Go ahead, it shows just how good it is.” No, I didn’t take a pic of the already devoured mushroom burger, instead I made them again. My husband describes them as a “tasty and juicy burger” with a “chicken-like texture.”

  2. Very lightly spread coconut oil on the each portabella mushroom cap and sprinkle seasoning on each side.

  4. Toast 100% whole wheat sandwich rounds, either in toaster or in pan with mushrooms. (You can lightly add butter after toasting - I prefer butter, but my husband uses mayo.)
