I have noticed several burger recipes on here lately. My favorite topper for burgers is mushrooms. Here's alittle info on them and then the recipe.
Mushrooms are low calorie, cholesteral and fat free and have a sugnificant amount of vitamins such as Vitamin D, Biotin(Vitamin B7), Niacin (VitaminB3), Pantothenic Acid(Vitamin B5), and riboflavin(Vitamin B2) and also has traces of Vitamin B12 as well. Look for firm, unblemished ones without obvious moisture or mold.
Mushroom Topper Ingredients:
- 1/2 pound wild mushrooms(shiitakes, cepes, porcinis or chanterelles)
- 1 shallot finely chopped
- 1 Tablespoon olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon low sodium soy sauce
- Sea Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 to 2 Tablespoons chopped fresh parsley 1 Tablespoon fresh chives or tarragon
1. Clean mushrooms gently with a damp paper towel.

3. Add mushroom, salt and pepper and toss.
4. Cook about 3 minutes and then add shallot and cook until it turns brown and is tender.
5. Add parsley, tarragon or chives and toss.
