Recipe courtesy of Nicolette Matt, 2nd place winner of Swap It or Top It 2014


Serving Size: 4 Burger Patties

Recipe Ingredients:

1/4 cup Bread Crumbs
1/4 cup Toasted Pecans chopped
1/4 cup Parmesan shredded
Spring of Rosemary chopped fine
One Onion sliced fine
2 cups on diced Shiitake Mushrooms stems removed
2 tablespoon Diced Sun Dried Tomatoes (oil preserved)
½ tablespoon Tamari Soy Sauce, low sodium
½ tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce
1 tablespoon Olive, Walnut or Grapeseed oil

Recipe Directions:

  1. In a bowl, combine breadcrumbs, toasted pecans, Parmesan, and rosemary.
  2. Caramelize the onion in a skillet with olive oil and add to bowl with dry ingredients.
  3. In the same pan the onions were in, cook the shiitake on high heat until the mushroom liquid has been reabsorbed. Let cool and add to rest of ingredients.
  4. Mix until evenly distributed. Stir in sun-dried tomatoes, tamari, Worcestershire and oil until consistency is moist enough to hold together. Add vegetable broth if additional moisture is needed.
  5. Let sit for half an hour in the fridge.
  6. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  7. Using a metal round, press out 4 equal patties.
  8. Bake the patties at 400 Degrees for about 15 minutes or until the edges appear golden but not too dry.
  9. Pepper after baked. Salt shouldn’t be needed due to the tamari.
  10. Serve on whole wheat bun with ½ cup of arugula, a few sun-dried tomatoes and/or more caramelized onions.
