Portobello Mushroom Burger Recipe

Our KWF Recipe Developer Extraordinaire, Colin Brett, recently shared this customer and staff favorite. We love theseĀ burgers because they’reĀ bursting with earthy notes from local mushrooms! The cashews add a buttery texture and shaved citrus brightens the rich mushrooms flavors. Enjoy them on a bed of kale or your favorite greens!
