Mushroom Barley Burgers with Sage

Mushroom Barley Burgers with Sage



It’s easy to make your own delicious veggie burgers! After you’ve tried these mushroom barley burgers, you’ll say goodbye to frozen, processed patties. These get wonderful flavor from sautéed mushrooms, sage, and mozzarella cheese.
Total Time: 55 min.
Prep Time: 15 min.
Cooking Time: 20 min.
Yield: 4 servings
Ingredients:
3 tsp. olive oil, divided use
1 medium onion, finely chopped
4 oz. finely chopped mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. finely chopped fresh sage (or 1 tsp. dried sage)
½ tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. ground black pepper
1½ cups cooked pearl barley (see below)
2 Tbsp. finely chopped walnuts
1 large egg, beaten
¼ cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 Tbsp. sherry wine
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, split
Preparation:
1. Heat 1½ tsp. oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
2. Add onion; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until onions are translucent.
3. Add mushrooms, garlic, sage, salt, and pepper; cook, stirring frequently, for 4 to 5 minutes, or until liquid that mushrooms give off evaporates. Remove from heat.
4. Combine onion mixture, barley, walnuts, egg, mozzarella, and sherry; mix well.
5. Shape mixture into 4 patties. Refrigerate 20 minutes.
6. Heat remaining 1½ tsp. oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
7. Add patties; cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side, or until evenly browned and cooked through.
8. Serve each patty on a bun.
Tip: To make 1½ cups cooked pearl barley, place ½ cup dry pearl barley in a small saucepan. Cover with water. Heat to boiling on medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook, covered, for 40 to 45 minutes, or until tender. Drain.
