Healthy vegan burger made with mushrooms

This delicious, healthy, vegan burger recipe is made from mushrooms. It’s perfect for vegans and vegetarians as a lunch time snack or evening meal when served with a side salad.

Burgers are one of the worlds most popular foods, they are easy and quick to make as well as being relatively affordable. These are a mealtime favourite for all of the family. 

Unlike regular burgers, ours is made with mushrooms and crackers. Personally  we love toasting our buns for that extra crunch, it’s obviously down to personal taste, you might prefer them un-toasted or you could  substitute  them for a sesame or brioche bun.
