In this burger recipe, the mushrooms are so meaty that they are sometimes mistaken for beef (sort of): Mushroom Veggie Burgers
They don’t taste like regular burgers, by any means. They taste as they should… like portobello mushroom burgers.

Mushroom Veggie Burgers
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups moderately, finely chopped yellow onion (about 1 large onion)
3 small garlic cloves, finely minced
4 cups coarsely chopped portobello mushrooms (about 2 large mushrooms)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup Italian-flavored breadcrumbs
2 large egg whites
buns and condiments of your choice
1. Heat olive oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over moderately high heat for 1 minute. Add chopped onion and garlic and sauté, stirring occasionally, until limp and golden- about 3 minutes.
2. Add mushrooms and sauté, stirring now and then, until mushrooms soften and brown- about 4 minutes. Transfer mushroom mixture to a large bowl and cool 10 minutes.
3. Using wooden spoon, mix salt, pepper and bread crumbs into mushroom mixture. Add egg whites and mix thoroughly.
4. Scoop up mixture by 1/2-cup measure, then using hands, shape into four patties about 3/4-inch-thick.
5. Wipe out skillet, spray with nonstick spray, and set over moderate heat. Add patties and brown about 3 minutes on each side.
6. Serve on buns and add desired condiments.
