Sofrito Mushroom Burgers Directions

  1. Pulse all ingredients for sofrito mixture in a food processor or blender until chopped and blended. Don’t pulse too long. You want it coarsely chopped about like pickle relish. Store sofrito in a lidded jar in the refrigerator if not using immediately. It can also be frozen in plastic bags.
  2. Makes about 1½ cups.
  3. Form hamburger meat into patties (or your lean protein choice) and grill or cook to your liking.
  4. While burgers are cooking, saute sliced mushrooms (or other vegetable) in a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil.
  5. Remove burgers from grill, top with mushrooms and spoon your sofrito mix over top of the mushrooms.
  6. Use your sofrito mix as a topping on eggs, chicken, seafood, chicken, pork..anything!
