Spice Quarter | Montreal Spice Blend | Mushroom Burgers



This month we detour to Canada and introduce the Montreal spice blend. You may also know it as Montreal Steak Seasoning. While steak is the common ingredient this blend is used with, we at Spice Quarter tried a unique vegetarian twist

We all love burgers and a healthy burger is always a better burger!

So this month, we are creating a healthy home made mushroom burger flavoured with the Montreal spice blend

The Montreal spice is a mix of sweet and spicy and it goes well with juicy tomatoes, fresh mushrooms and fried onions. Read on to find out how you can create this recipe at home as well
