Mushroom Burger Wrap

Recipe adapted from MyPlate for Moms, How to Feed Yourself & Your Family Better, by Elizabeth M. Ward, M.S., R.D.


These mushroom burgers are so tasty it’s hard to believe they’re not 100% beef.

Yield: 4 servings

Serving Size: 1-5 ounce burger in one tortilla


6 ounces white button mushrooms
6 ounces crimini mushrooms
2 teaspoons plus 2 tablespoons canola oil
1/2 cup low-fat ricotta cheese
8 ounces 93% lean ground beef
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
2  teaspoons dried basil or 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
4 2-ounce whole-wheat tortillas
freshly ground black pepper


1. Chop mushrooms into ¼-inch pieces.  Heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat.  Add 2 teaspoons canola oil.  Place mushrooms in pan and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes.  Drain. Return mushrooms to pan and season with freshly ground black pepper.

2. In a large bowl, combine the mushrooms, ricotta cheese, ground beef, egg, breadcrumbs, and basil. Form mixture into 4 burgers.

3. Heat a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons canola oil. Cook burgers for about 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or until done. (Or grill burgers.) Serve in tortilla.

Tips: These are delicious with caramelized onions, fresh tomato and cheddar cheese.
