Champignon Burger

Four Star Burger
The Champignon Burger is a burger full of French elegance with ingredients like fennel, Dijon, lentils, and roasted red peppers. It's not trying to be a substitute for meat, just a delicious meal. Mission accomplished.

Champignon Burger
Gluten Free
Serves 1

2 oz shiitake mushrooms
2 tbsp canned lentils
3 tbsp. fresh gluten-free bread crumbs
1 tbsp. liquid egg substitute
2 tbsp. fennel, diced
1/4 tsp. dried Herbes de Provence
1/2 tsp. Dijon mustard + extra for serving
1 garlic clove, minced
1 wedge Light Mozzarella Laughing Cow Cheese, cut in half
1.5 tbsp. gluten free polenta
2 tbsp. roasted red pepper,  chopped
1 gluten free hamburger bun, toasted

1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.

2. Remove stems from mushrooms and discard. Coarsely chop half of the mushrooms caps and place in a small food processor.

3. Quarter the remaining mushroom caps and set aside.

4. Add lentils, bread crumbs, egg, fennel, herbes de provence, mustard, garlic, and half of the cheese wedge to the food processor. Pulse until coarsely chopped.

5. Place polenta on a medium plate.

6. Form the mushroom mixture into a large patty and gently coat on all sides with polenta (patty will be very delicate).

7. Spray a medium nonstick pan with nonstick spray and heat to medium. Add the reserved mushrooms and cook until golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Remove mushrooms from pan.

8. Respray pan. Add burger patty and cook, turning once, until golden brown, about 6 minutes.

9. Meanwhile, place remaining cheese wedge in a small dish and microwave until melted, 20-30 seconds.

10. Transfer burger to a small baking sheet. Top with melted cheese and bake until heated through, about 4 minutes.

11. Serve burgers on buns, and top with mushroom mixture, peppers, and extra Dijon mustard, if desired.
