Really tasty, but even tastier when you add hot grilled peppers

Made this last night and served with wedges (sweet and regular potato) and an asian style coleslaw. Very impressed, the 'burgers' were moist (but not wet), tasty and filling. I also missed out the butter (too keep the calories down) but didn't seem to affect it too much.

these are absolutley delish! they have gone down a hit with the whole family. they can be quite plain though so just to give it a bit more of a kick i also like to add either branston relish or some homemade salsa which i make with cherry tomatoes which i grill until they change colour slightly and shrivel a bit. i then chop them up with some freshly grated carrot and a nice juicy red chilli. i then add a touch of tabasco some finely chopped red onion which i do in the food processor, seasoning and a squezze of lime. also add some freshly chopped herbs (i used coriander). it is a really delicious salsa which definetly works beautifully with the burgers. it's still slightly cooked but lovely and fresh.

My children absolutely LOVE these burgers, we have discovered that pretty much any cheese will do but for a more sophisticated flavour blue cheese and mushrooms are a math made in heaven.

Great if you love mushrooms, if your not that keen I would advoid. Also found these very messy due to the amount of liquid that came out of the mushroom whilst eating. I added some home made salsa otherwise these have been very bland. Ok for a quick heathly lunchtime snack but garlic very strong so would adviod if you have a hot date later!

This is one of my favourites, a great healthy alternative to beef burgers, I have made these several time and I added a bit of green pesto for a bit of extra flavour, goes well with some potato wedges.
