Mushroom Beef Burgers

If you’re a lover of beef burgers, enjoying your passion while being smart about nutrition and sustainability can be a tough balance to find. These burgers are worth a try. Using mushrooms to make a little meat go further, they are still very much a meat burger. Keep in mind too that the nutrition difference in a burger happens in the toppings: a nice balance of veggies is a healthier choice than loads of cheese and condiments that are packed with salt and sugar.


  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, minced
  • ¼ tsp. mushroom base
  • ¼ tsp. beef base
  • ¼ cup warm water
  • 1 lb. 95% lean ground beef
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ½ tsp. low-sodium Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 whole grain buns
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • ½ onion, sliced
  • 1 cup sprouts


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and cook until browned and moisture has released (3-5 minutes).
  2. Move mushrooms to a bowl and chill until cooled (15-20 minutes).
  3. Dissolve both bases in warm water. Pour over cooled mushrooms.
  4. Season ground beef with pepper and Worcestershire sauce. Mix in the mushrooms until thoroughly combined. Form into four patties of desired thickness.
  5. Heat the skillet over high heat. Add the remaining tablespoon of oil, then the burgers. Cover with a lid and let cook until seared (2-3 minutes). Flip, leave lid off, and cook to desired doneness (2-5 minutes).
  6. Place burgers on buns and top with vegetables.
