Ingredients

  • 1 cup, pieces or slices mushrooms, white
  • 12 ounce beef, ground, 90% lean
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, ground
  • 4 hamburger buns, whole wheat
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 2 medium bell pepper, red
  • 4 ounce feta cheese crumbles
  • 4 cup, diced watermelon
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, fresh
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 teaspoon lemon juice

Instructions

  • Dice mushrooms into small pieces.  Spray a skillet with cooking spray; heat skillet over medium heat and add mushrooms.  Sauté for 2-3 minutes, or less, to allow mushrooms to soften up a bit.  Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.  (An essential step because you do not want to mix a heated food item with raw meat.  Read more here). 
  • While the mushrooms cool, heat the grill you will be using to cook your burgers.  This can be as simple as using a griddle pan on the stove or an outdoor grill over hot coals.  
  • Once mushrooms are cool, toss into a bowl with the ground beef, season with 1/4tsp salt and 1/4tsp pepper and shape into hamburger patties.  Transfer to your desired cooking location and cook until browned on both sides, no longer pink inside.  Transfer to a clean platter and cover if not ready to serve yet.  
  • To prepare salad:
  • Dice pepper, cube feta and watermelon.  Coarsely chop parsley.  Toss these ingredients into a bowl along with the remaining 1/4 tsp of salt, 1/4 tsp pepper, olive oil and lemon juice, gently fold together.  
  • Toast hamburger buns a clean grilling area or skillet, serve hamburger on the bun, topped with lettuce and a few slices of avocado; salad on the side.
