Serves: 10-12 burgers
Ingredients
For the mushroom burgers:
  • 2 lbs mushrooms (see note)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 Tbs tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried dill
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • olive oil for cooking
Instructions
  1. Dice the mushrooms.
  2. Heat 1-2 Tbs olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  3. Cook the mushrooms for 5-10 minutes or until softened and cooked through but still maintain a bit of chewy texture (or until your desired doneness)
  4. Remove mushrooms from heat and allow to cool.
  5. Add garlic, onion, dill and salt + pepper to taste. Mix, check for seasoning and adjust if needed.
  6. Add egg and tapioca and mix until thoroughly combined.
  7. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium/med-low heat.
  8. Spoon mushroom mixture into skillet, forming into the shape of burger patties.
  9. Cook for 3-5 minutes on one side or until mushrooms are browned and crisp. The patties should maintain their shape when flipped.
  10. Gently flip burgers and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes on the second side.
  11. Repeat until you've cooked all the mushroom mixture.
  12. Serve immediately.
Notes
* For the best results, you want strongly flavored and firm textured mushrooms. Try portobello, shiitake, porcini or trumpets.
