  • Sautéed Mushrooms & Onion (3 Cups Cremini Mushrooms sliced, 2 Cups 
  • Yellow Onions sliced thinly, 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil) 

Cooking Instructions:

1) In sauté pan over medium heat, add coconut oil to pan. Once the oil is hot, add the red onions and a pinch of sea salt.  Sauté the onions until they get tender (about 5 minutes).  

2) Add the garlic and shallots to the pan and sauté for another 3- 5 minutes.  Take onion mixture off the heat and let cool.

3) In a small bowl, combine the umeboshi vinegar, Dijon mustard, smoked paprika, ground cumin, dried thyme, salt and pepper.

4) In a large mixing bowl, mix together grated beet, cooked short grain brown rice, great northern beans, rolled oats, parsley and onion mixture.

5) Mix in seasonings from the smaller bowl. With clean hands, mix and mash all the ingredients together. You want the mixture to be well combined. This will take about 3 minutes.  

6) Taste burger mixture to see if it needs more salt. 

7) Form burgers with a 1/2 cup measuring cup.  Form burgers and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, at most overnight.  

8) To cook the burgers, heat coconut oil in sauté pan and sear burgers for 4-

5 minutes per side or bake at 350F for 25 minutes.

9) Serve on your favorite whole-wheat roll with arugula, balsamic maple aioli, sautéed mushrooms & onions. If cheese is a must for you, spread soft goat cheese on the top roll.
