Portabella Broccoli Veggie Burgers

AuthorKathleen GloverCategory, DifficultyIntermediate

I don't know about you but if I'm making a veggie burger I want to maximize the health benefits I'm getting. This Portabella Broccoli Veggie Burgers are packed with healthy goodness. In one patty you're getting broccoli, beans, and mushrooms. Whether you're a full time vegetarian or just trying to cut out meat, this recipe can substitute a hamburger for me any day.

There are so many options to dress up this burger because it it has an earthy umami flavor from the portabella that lends itself to most toppings. You can garnish it like a regular burger with, mustard and ketchup. Personally I like to go spicy with some pepperjack cheese, hot sauce, and a spoonful of guacamole.

If you really want to overload on veggies I've even seen people use a whole portobello mushroom instead of a traditional bread bun

Tip: If you want to prep these Portabella Broccoli Veggie Burgers for a crowd, you can even bake them (check out our video below) all at once so you're not standing over the stove for a long time.
