Gluten-free, vegan, can be made grain-free
These don’t look all that appealing, but trust me, they are amazing! And so easy.
–1 package shitake mushrooms
–1 package button or other mushrooms (your choice)
–Oatmeal flakes or a gluten-free flour (enough to make the mix a little firmer)
–A few small scallions or one large leek (or a mix of both)
–Salt and pepper to taste
Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender (the former works better), blend for about a minute. Throw mixture in a hot pan and try to form burgers. If the consistency doesn’t work for burgers, eat in lettuce leaf wraps or gluten free wraps. Serve with some cucumber slices, or a side of fruit.
- We used a local Austrian variety of mushroom called Kräuter Seitling as well as shiitake mushrooms but you can play around with different types.
- Can use in lettuce leaf wraps if you aren’t able to form burgers due to the consistency. (For example, if you leave out the oatmeal).
- Could add an egg replacement (or eggs) for better consistency.
