Mushroom Veggie Burgers


1 Tbs olive oil
1½ 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)
¼ tsp salt
1/8 tsp 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 ½-cup measure, then using hands, shape into four patties about ¾-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.
