Make Burgers Better by Mixing Meat With Mushrooms

Combine minced meat with chopped mushrooms for a nutritious, organic burger that will also save you money at the grocery store.

Thanks to its umami flavor, mushrooms go well with minced meat. A low-calorie vegetable can also make your burger healthier by adding B vitamins, vitamin D, fiber, and other nutrients .

The James Beard Foundation encourages all of us to mix our burgers for sustainability reasons. You need less meat for a burger and it will still be delicious. If you share a photo of your blended burger (made with at least 25% mushrooms) with foundation, you have a chance to win a trip to James Byrd’s New York home. Watch the video above from Mushroom Channel and Chef Billy Parisi for inspiration.

However, even if you’re not in the competition, mixing a hamburger can be good for your wallet and your waistline.
