Beef Burgers

Replacing the buns with large field mushrooms makes this a super healthy option to a takeaway classic.

Serves 2


  • 300g beef mince
  • ¼ red onion, finely diced or grated
  • 1 tbsp djorn mustard
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • Salt to taste
  • Coconut oil or ghee for cooking
  • 4 large field mushrooms
  • Salad of choice for filling
  • Homemade mayo


  1. Put the beef, onion, mustard, garlic and seasoning in a bowl and mix everything together. Shape into 2 equal sized patties and 1.5 cm thick. Heat oil in frying pan over medium heat and pop the patties in. Cook for about 4-5 minutes each side prior to flipping over. Set them aside to rest whilst your cook the mushrooms.
  2. Remove the skin and stork of the mushrooms and place top side down in the heated frypan for 2 minutes before flipping and cooking for another 2 minutes.
  3. Assemble your burgers by placing a pattie on top of one of the field mushrooms (bottom up), top with salad (tomato, beetroot, carrot, lettuce) and why not add some mashed avocado and a scoop of homemade mayo. Then pop the second mushroom on top (bottom side down).

Be warned these can be a little messy, but are super delicious and super nutritious. They will become a real food staple.
