A healthy burger to nosh during the Sochi Games

(Continued)

Wash the skillet, and return it to the stove.

Add the chopped, reconstituted dried mushrooms to the onions in the bowl along with a hefty pinch of salt, ground black pepper to taste and the ground beef. Mix well, and form into 4 burgers.

In the cleaned skillet, heat the remaining tablespoon of oil over medium. Season the burgers lightly with salt and pepper, then add them to the skillet. Cook the burgers for 3 to 5 minutes per side depending on the desired degree of doneness (3 minutes for rare and 5 for medium-well).

Transfer the burgers to each of 4 plates, and spoon some sauce over each portion.
