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.

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.

- 1 tsp salt, divided
- 1/2 tablespoon onion powder
- 3 cups raw spinach
