Make the best burgers better!

You are currently viewing Make the best burgers better!

Bun, beef patty, burger. Basic, but still brilliant. And you’ll love them even more when you add mushrooms – just halve the meat and mix in the same amount of finely chopped fungi for the ultimate flavour hack!

Everyone loves a juicy burger, even though they can be heavy on the fat, cholesterol and salt. Mushrooms bring rich, savoury, umami flavour with ZERO calories or fat. They’re also low in salt and high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which means bigger flavour and a bunch of bonus health benefits from your favourite fakeaway!

Oh, and mushrooms are cheaper than meat too, so you’ll come in on budget; and blending mushrooms and meat helps you become more plant-focused in your eating without depriving you of your favourite foods. The downside of blending mushrooms with meat for burgers? None. Not a single one. Let me introduce you to: Aegean Odyssey, it is a Greek Style Mushroom Blended Burger
