I love this BurgerFit burger! It is the go-to burger if you really need to disguise a vegetable. The mushrooms take on the flavor and texture of the meat, so it tastes like a regular burger.

Why eat the Spinach and Mushroom Burger?

Spinach plus mushrooms? Yes, please! The texture of mushrooms blend seamlessly into these burgers. Mushrooms can be an excellent source of vitamin D, selenium, and copper. Selenium has been getting a lot of recognition recently due to its important role in metabolism and thyroid function.

Equipment

Skillet
Measuring spoons
Knife
Food processor
Large bowl
Utensil for mixing

Ingredients

  • 1 (8 ounce) package mushrooms
  • 1 tsp salt, divided
  • 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
  • 3 cups raw spinach
  • 2 cloves garlic or 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 lb ground meat

Instructions

  • Heat a skillet on medium heat with 1 tablespoon cooking fat. Rough chop the mushrooms and saute with a ½ teaspoon of salt for about 10 minutes, until soft. For the last couple of minutes, add the spinach to the skillet to cook with the mushrooms. 
  • Once the spinach and mushrooms are cooked, put the spinach, mushrooms, garlic, and onion in the food processor (or finely chop). Let the mixture cool completely.
  •  In a large bowl, mix the ground meat and the remaining teaspoon of salt. Gradually incorporate the vegetable mixture into the ground meat. Add as much as you can while still being able to form your burgers as normal.
    *If you end up adding too much vegetable mixture, don’t worry! Just form your burgers and cook in the oven for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Cook burgers on medium heat on the stove for 5 minutes on each side or to your preference. Cooking times can vary.
  • Serve with your favorite cheese and condiments.

    I love to incorporate mushrooms in my vegetable dishes and when I learned about this recipe, I was so thrilled to try it. I sautéed the two packs of mushrooms (coz I love it) and added fresh onion and garlic. I also added chopped fresh tomato to boost the flavor. I always keep the heat to low when I sauté fresh spices to preserve the aroma. Trust me when I say, this is the best veggie burger you will ever try, it ticks all the criteria of a healthy, easy to make and delicious food.
