Author Notes

This recipe came about one day while I was making beef and gouda burgers for the family. My mother is a vegetarian. I didn’t want to leave her out so I randomly threw some ingredients together in an attempt to make a veggie burger she could enjoy, turns out, that veggie burger was better than the beef. Huge hit to say the least especially topped with that fried egg and avocado spread. It’s a great way to use your carrots and mushrooms. —Greedy girl
