Vegan Mushroom bulgur burgers (about 13 medium size patties)
Can you tell I love mushrooms? A home made Mushroom burger is probably my favorite! I create mushroom burger in so many ways! I'll share one with you today. I used bulgur which makes the burgers really fluffy and light. I like to feel mushrom chunks in my burger and this is the reason I chop the mushrooms and not use a food processor . If you like your burger more fine in texture, then chop everything in the food processor.
As you can see in the photo , I served the burger on a slice of roasted butternut squash, In my opinion, it is so good! The sweetness from the butternut squash and the saltiness from the mushroom burgers create the perfect combination of flavor in your mouth. Not to mention the health benefit of eating a vegetables instead of a bun (= empty calories).
I also like to top mine with avocado and Tahini sauce.
Try for yourself and enjoy!
