Homemade Mushroom Burgers for dinner tonight
As Blue Peter would have said in one of their programmes 'here's one I made earlier', in my case 'here's 4 I made earlier'.
I am looking forward to trying one of my burgers tonight.
Hope you all enjoy your meal tonight.
Hi Alicia, these look really good, so you enjoy them, 😊
Thank you Jerry, they were so easy to make as well.
Wow, they look great!!! What a good idea. I hope they taste as good as they look - and that you enjoy them.
Thank you and I am looking forward to eating them.
Hi again Alicia,
How did they taste, and how did you make them? They look really good.
They tasted nice but need more flavouring, I think I'll introduce some herbs to the next batch but the basic recipe is below:
Mushroom & chickpea burgers
1 tbsp olive oil
250g chestnut mushroom, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 bunch of spring onions
1 tbsp medium curry powder
Zest and juice of half a lemon
400g can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
85g fresh wholemeal breadcrumb
6 tbsp 0% Greek yogurt pinch ground cumin
2 mixed-grain muffins or rolls, toasted and halved
2 plum tomatoes, sliced
Method 1. Heat 1 tsp oil in a non-stick frying pan and cook the mushroom, garlic and spring onion for 5 mins. Mix in the curry powder, lemon zest and juice and cook for 2 mins or until mixture looks quite dry. Tip out onto a plate to cool slightly.
2. Use a potato masher or fork to mash the chickpeas in a bowl, leaving a few chunky pieces. Add the mushroom mix and the crumbs, then shape into 4 patties. Fry in the remaining oil for 3-4 mins on each side until crisp and browned.
3. Mix the yogurt with the cumin. Place half a muffin on each plate, then spread with the yogurt. Top with the burgers, a few slices of tomato and a little rocket.
I stopped at the Greek Yogurt as I didn't make the sauce and I used Portobello Mushrooms as I had bought those for another recipe but if I had used the Chestnut Mushrooms they would have tasted better as they have more flavour.
I'm learning as I go along with these recipes. A one pot meal tomorrow of curry which uses a whole cauliflower.
Thanks so much Alicia, I shall copy and paste that recipe into my folder for delicious recipes. I hope to try it out sometime soon, and I will definitely use Chestnut mushrooms, as I agree they are more flavourful.
p.s. Hope your One pot meal of Curry made with a whole cauliflower goes well. Sounds great!
You are welcome and definitely use the Chestnut Mushrooms, they taste so much better.
I am making the one pot meal tomorrow as have family for dinner tonight so am making a roast, I am having my nut roast of course.
They look fab! 😁
Thank you Mel and I did enjoy them albeit a little more seasoning next time me thinks - out come the herbs.
Try adding a few spoons of nutritional yeast. The taste would go really well with mushrooms. I need to try using it in more things after seeing Kitten-whiskers recipes. I've also been using liquid aminos as a nutritious flavouring, as well as mushroom ketchup & Henderson's relish (both liquids that can be added as a condiment).
Thank you Mel, where do you buy your nutritional yeast? Very good ideas here for bumping up the flavour and thank you.
Try your local wholefood shop, or look online. I usually get 3 tubs for around £8.50. I use the blue type that contains B12. It's great in soups & stews.
Thank you for that Mel, I will look in Holland and Barrett and see what I can get. I'll look for the blue type.
of meals, but I did enjoy it. My starter was actually really big, and in retrospect I could have shared...
wondering what you've had for your dinner tonight, so please share if you want to. I had Chicken breast...
everyone, I made some of these to have with salads and I had it with with some salad in a home made gf bread...
