Mushroom Veggie Burger

Possible or impossible? Possible. What is possible? Vegetarian Burger and Mushroom Veggie Burger. I have already made. Henceforth, I can affirm. We can of course make vegetarian burger (Vegetarian Fried Mee Hoon, Drumstick Sambar, Mee Rebus Vegetarian, Spinach Tofu Stir Fry & Creamy Coconut Lentil Curry). Various types, various styles, your style and my style? I think veggie burger out of mushroom is (Mushroom Rolls)? Not those expensive shrooms. Not the portobello. Nope. You can actually make mushroom burger from canned button mushrooms. Yes, you can.  I did it for this Mushroom Veggie Burger, why can't or shouldn't you (Vegetarian Sandwich)? Chop the shrooms, chop to the finest point or pulse in the blend before making and then grilling the mushroom patties. After which into grilled burger buns (Lamb Burgers) and assembled alongside pickled onion and, as much as much, as many veggies (Gado Gado, Chinese Vegetarian Noodle Soup & Cucumber Yogurt Salad) and sauces as well. Anything else you are doubting?  

For burger patties
1 can button mushrooms (about 300g) - chopped or pulse in the processor.
2 sprigs mint leaves - shredded
3 shallots - chopped
1/4 cup bread crumbs

In a non-stick grilling pan, drizzle oil.

Add all ingredients together and let it stand until needed.

To assemble

  1. Mmm super yummy. Why ah? Today like many people feature burger LOL. Just saw one burger with tauhe. :)

  2. I enjoy burger occasionally. Most time I eat only patties with salad. They are quite tasty and I add also add oats to it. Next time I will add mint leaves.

  3. This is a great idea, I love mushrooms so this is my kind of thing!

  4. Nava, this is one of the best-looking veggie burgers I've ever seen. It looks amazing!

  5. What a healthy version of burger,sound very tasty !!

  6. I love these healthy looking burgers:) Yum.

  7. this is my kind of much as i am quite carnivorous, mushrooms give me great satisfaction. coupled with mint...yumms!

    King - either the oil splits or until the oil floats, indicating the grounded ingredients are fully cooked, removing the raw smell.

  13. This burger is RIGHT up my alley! Veg-friendly and hearty! YUM!

  14. Oh yum, I like the combination of mushroom and mint in your patties!

  15. hi nava, interesting and healthy to do own patties. your burger is the nutritous type.. have a nice day

  16. What a wonderful twist to burger, Nava! Love this more because of the mushrooms!

  17. Beautiful pictures! My son would love this burger.

  18. Being a carnivour at heart,I like my burgers with beef in it, but after eating Nava's burger, you hardly know it's vegetarian, just like the real thing and very satisfying, upon biting the bun, you're engulfed with all sorts of aroma, from the variety and richness of ingredients used and with each bite it gets more and more satisfying, crunching into the full bodied mushrooms and other chewable stuff, you're eating merrily away and feeling mighty satisfied and sated, exactly how you should feel after a good burger meal, who knew vegetarian could taste this good and gives you such a full feeling, and to think its healthy to boot!

  19. Nice idea and I'm gonna make this, this weekend when my friends come over!!

  20. It's certainly interesting to see mint added to mushrooms. Love to grab a bite!

  21. What a lovely combo....... Looks super yumm paattie!!!

  22. Nvr thought of making the burger with mushrooms... Simply great...
