Mushroom Lovin’!

I absolutly LOVE mushrooms! They’re probably my favorite veggie! I love to put them on top of my burgers, so I figured why not put them in a burger instead! Instead of your usual beef or turkey, these burgers are made with ground chicken and chickpeas, and of course mushrooms – plus they have a little bit of cumin and cilantro in them, which just kicks the flavor level up even more!

Mushroom Chicken Chickpea Burgers


– Nonstick cooking spray

1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced

2 large eggs

– Salt and pepper, to taste

1 tsp lemon juice

1 lb. ground chicken

1 cup chickpeas, drained, rinsed, and mashed

1 tsp cumin

2 tbsp fresh cilantro, chopped

¼ cup bread crumbs (I used panko)


Spray a large pan with cooking spray and place over medium heat. Add sliced mushrooms and saute for 3-4 minutes, or until softened. In a large bowl combine sautéed mushrooms, eggs, salt, pepper, lemon juice, chicken, mashed chickpeas, cumin, cilantro, and bread crumbs – the mixture should be stiff. Divide the mixture into about 8 – 10 portions, and shape into patties. Refrigerate for 20 to 30 minutes.

Spray a the same large pan, or electric flat-top skillet with cooking spray and place over medium-high heat. Cook the patties for 3 to 5 minutes per side or until golden brown and crisp.

Makes about 8 to 10 medium sized burger patties.

These patties hold up great on their own, or on a bun! They’re also great topped with cheese, slathered with mustard, or dipped in sour cream or plain Greek yogurt!
