Mushroom Burger



Serves = 4

  • 4 large flat mushrooms
  • 4 whole- grain buns
  • 250g haloumi, thinly sliced
  • 1 baby gem lettuce, shredded
  • ½ cup jar roasted pepper strips, drained and sliced
  • ½ red onion
  • 1 cup, firmly packed basil leaves
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves, miced
  • ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil

It’s this easy

  • Make the pesto by adding basil, pine nuts, cheese and garlic to a food processor. You can use a stick blender if you don’t have a food processor. Process until everything is chopped and with the motor running pour the oil in a steady stream.
  • Heat the BBQ on medium heat. Drizzle some pepper, a small amount of salt and olive oil on the mushrooms. Place them on the BBQ and cook for 10 minutes, turning after 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile toast or warm the buns.
  • Drizzle some oil on the haloumi and cook on the flat plate of the BBQ for 1 minute on each side or until golden. If you don’t have a BBQ you can cook the mushrooms and haloumi in a frying pan, oven or sandwich press.
  • Assemble the burgers with the mushroom, haloumi, lettuce, roasted pepper and onion and top with pesto.

What is healthy eating?

Eating healthy is making sure you enjoy a wide variety of foods from each of the five major food groups daily, in the amounts recommended. The five major food groups as recommended by the Australian Guide to Healthy Eating are:

  1. vegetables and legumes/bean
  2. fruit
  3. lean meats and poultry, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts and seeds, legumes/beans
  4. grain (cereal) foods, mostly wholegrain and/or high cereal fibre varieties
  5. milk, yoghurt, cheese and/or alternatives, mostly reduced fat.

Foods are grouped together because they provide similar amounts of key nutrients and eating a variety of foods from the list above helps to promote good health and reduce the risk of disease.

By completing the Healthy Eating Quiz you’ll receive instant personalised feedback and a report on your diet quality to highlight any areas where you can improve your overall eating habits.

Is my diet healthy?

Dietary habits are different between people. Some people choose to follow a particular diet (i.e., Keto diet or vegan diet) while some have to make changes due to certain food restrictions or health conditions. If you want to know if what you usually eat is healthy, then do the Healthy Eating Quiz today to give you the answers in less than 10 minutes.

Why is healthy eating important?

Your HEQ score and personalised feedback report is based on the frequency and variety of healthy core foods you usually eat. This is important because no single food contains all the nutrients we need to stay healthy. Some foods are higher in nutrients than others and people who have a lot of variety in the foods they eat are more likely to be healthy and to stay healthy. In other words, if you can eat a large variety of vegetables as opposed to only 2-3 types of vegetables, the benefits are much greater. This type of diet also helps you to feel better, think better and perform better during your usual daily activities.
