    Recipe sounds delicious, except for the mushrooms. Why are mushrooms part of a “veggie” burger when mushrooms are a FUNGUS, not a veggie? I’ve always wondered about it, and now you may have the answer for me.

    I just like the texture mushrooms add – I guess others do as well!

    Mushrooms offer a depth of flavor to things that is hard to beat! I don’t care for their texture on their own or in large pieces, but they are the perfect way to add flavor to soups, burgers, sauces, rice casseroles, etc. Recipe looks tasty Anne!
