One of the first videos I EVER shot was a behind the scenes look at where mushrooms are grown. While it wasn't my BEST on-camera performance, it was one the coolest experiences I have ever had. Here is the full video at TOJO Mushroom Farm in Kennet Square, PA.
The visit inspired this recipe, using mushrooms as well as some other veggies. If you don't like mushrooms, you can swap in another veggie like zucchini, kale, peas, or a legume - lentils or beans!
The best part about this recipe that you can use almost any veggies you have on hand! Just swap them in!
✔️ Whether you eat a plant based diet or not, there are so many benefits to these burgers! Here are a few ...
⏭️⏭️ It is a yummy, convenient way to eat more veggies
⏭️⏭️ Fiber ! The average adult does NOT get the recommended amount of fiber, known for bowel regularity, lowering cholesterol, and satiety.
⏭️⏭️ Beets! Rich in antioxidants, minerals, & vitamins, beets can improve athletic performance, brain activity, & lower some cancer risks.
⏭️⏭️ Walnuts & pasture egg yolks are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. A fat that can lower inflation, improve healing, decrease symptoms of mental health, help joint pain and arthritis, among so many other benefits!
⏭️⏭️ They freeze really well! I like to make a double batch and freeze remaining burgers with parchment between each Burger so they don't stick together!
⏭️⏭️ plant rich or sword diets are the mainstay for treatment of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.
⏭️⏭️ Mushrooms are the only plant a source of vitamin D, a vitamin many people are deficient in
2 cups walnuts (toast for about 10 minutes to boost the flavor)
1 cup sweet potato, baked (about 1 small potato)
1 cup Portobello mushroom, quartered
1 cup sweet onion, small diced

¼ cup olive oil or avocado oil
2 tsp paprika
½ tsp cumin

Add oats to food processor and process until fine.
Add to the bowl and mixture into the mixture thoroughly.
Beat the egg in a small bowl and mix in with the other ingredients.
Use 1 tsp of the olive to rub on your hands (to prevent sticking when you form the patties) and add the rest into the mixture. Mix thoroughly.
