Method:
1. Place the mushrooms and onion in a food processor and process until finely chopped. Add the beef, bread crumbs, herbs and tomato paste. Season. Process until the mixture binds together but still has some texture.
2. Divide the mixture into 8-10 pieces, then press into patties using lightly floured hands.
3. Cook the burgers in a nonstick frying pan or under a hot broiler for 12-15 minutes, turning once until evenly cooked. Serve with relish and lettuce, in hamburger or pita bread.
