These burgers are so easy to make, the same as our other burger recipes, they are also super tasty and I am sure you have those ingredients in already!
Using mushrooms in burgers is great – mushrooms are also good sources of selenium, an antioxidant mineral, as well as copper, niacin, potassium and phosphorous, all essential minerals that play a part in our bodies functionalities an recovery process.
Additionally, mushrooms provide protein (would you believe it!), vitamin C and iron. Because their cells walls are undigestible unless exposed to heat, you must cook mushrooms to get their nutritional benefits, unlike some other vegetables.
So not just tasty – these burgers pack a nutritional punch too – with the beans, tofu and bun included, you are getting around 35g of protein per burger too!! Pretty good considering a beef burger would be around 20g! Who needs animals for delicious and nutritious burgers!?
