Spike Mendelsohn - BBQ Mushroom Burger

Plant-Based Mushroom and Onion Burger

Jacques loves a good burger. I put a twist on it with this climate-friendly, indulgent version piled high with onions two ways, smoked maple mushrooms, and BBQ sauce. Eating plant-based is super important, and I believe if we can focus on some favorites, like burgers, we can make a difference, fighting climate change through food.
