Mushroom burgers are a great alternative to a traditional meat burger and are a vegetarian delight! Often one of my recommendations to meat eaters is to try and have one meatless dinner a week. Mushroom burgers are a really great option for such a night. Add to it your choice of side vegetables and voila a delicious meal to satisfy everyone! Among their many health benefits, mushrooms are a source of B vitamins as well as being a rare food source of Vitamin D. Of note, it is important that you eat organic mushrooms. As mushrooms gain their nutrition from metabolizing non-living organic matter, it is important to eat organically grown mushrooms to avoid the possibility of consuming harmful contaminants that may be absorbed.
