- 1 pound fresh button mushrooms
- 1 red onion
- 1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
- 1/4 cup fresh dill
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- canola oil for brushing the tops
- 6 pretzel buns
- 1/4 cup mango chutney
- 1 cup arugula
Prepare the pretzel buns and mango chutney.
Preheat the oven to 400°F/200°C.
Clean the mushrooms and cut them in half. Cook them in a pan without oil on medium to high heat until they are soft. Set aside and let them cool off a bit.
Peel and cut the red onion in rings. Slowly caramelize the red onion in a pan while adding bits of water when it starts to stick to the pan.
Transfer the cooked mushrooms and about 1/3 of the caramelized onions to the food processor. Add sunflower seeds, oats, breadcrumbs, fresh dill, and salt. Process until combined. You should be able to form 6 patties. If the mixture is too crumbly add tiny splashes of water, if it’s too sticky add more breadcrumbs.
Place the mushroom patties on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Spray or brush them with oil. Bake the patties in the oven for 20-25 minutes, flipping them once halfway through. They should be slightly browned.
Assemble your burgers: Slice the pretzel buns open, add fresh arugula, the mushroom patty, spread mango chutney on top and add leftover caramelized onions. Enjoy!
