Mini Mushroom Burger Bites

 This week we're featuring Mushrooms for Sunday Funday.   And I decided to go for something I remembered sampling at the Cowichan Exhibition over many years ago.   So long ago, I'm not admitting how many years. 

I'd tried a sample of a mushroom burger at a stand promoting a vegetarian lifestyle and fell in love.  So, I decided to have some fun for today's event.

I probably buy and consume a pound or more of fresh button mushrooms every week.  I love mushrooms, and stick mostly with the white or button mushrooms, although if I can find baby portobello's I'll certainly grab them.  Our little town doesn't have a lot of choices, mushroom wise.  But that's OK, cause these little mushroom burger bites work so well with just plain old white button mushrooms. 

I also cooked and added some mung bean to the basic recipe, I was trying to amp up the protein level a bit.  

I ate some with just mango chutney on top,

And some with Mango and Thai Green Curry Paste.  I liked the one with the Green Curry Paste the best.
