This is my latest garden burger creation. I really like the meaty taste and texture that mushrooms give to garden burgers. Shiitake mushrooms have a long history of being a medicinal food and their many health benefits include: immunity, cardiovascular, and anti-cancer support. These are grain free as well and can be made raw by dehydrating them instead of roasting them. (You would also need to marinate the mushrooms instead of cooking them.)
