    Are you trying to put more plant-based foods in your diet? Try a blenditarian burger – it’s a blend of ground beef and mushrooms, created by MasterChef Junior finalist Evan Robinson.

    Blenditarian and MasterChef Junior finalist Evan Robinson created this Pizza Burger recipe using a mushroom/ground beef blend.

    The mushrooms add a umami flavor, vegetables, and an earth-friendly ingredient to the ground beef.

    This recipe uses a mushroom/ground beef blend for a healthier, plant-focused meal that is Earth-conscious and strikes a nutrition-sustainability-flavor balance.
