What's Blenditarian mean, you ask? It's is one of the easiest things you'll ever do to create healthier, more sustainable meals. You simply substitute a portion of the meat you would normally use in a recipe with mushrooms or another vegetable of your liking. Why go blenditarian? It's better for your health:These blends tend to trim fat and calories and adds a serving of much-needed vegetables. It's more sustainable (especially if you use mushrooms):One million pounds of mushrooms can grow in the space of just an acre, require minimal water, and are ready to harvest in just a matter of days, making them one of the most earth-friendly and renewable crops available. It's more wallet-friendly:Vegetables help bulk up the volume of your favorite meaty recipes without busting your grocery budget. So whether you're an omnivore looking to reduce your carbon footprint, are looking for a way to incorporate more plant-based food into your diet, or just want a way to stretch your budget when buying organic, Blenditarian recipes are a great way to reduce your meat consumption without skimping on flavor! Burger Patties Makes 6 Burgers. Ingredients
