Sonic’s new burger blends beef with mushrooms so you eat less meat | The Optimist Daily

One way to do this could be by offering burger-lovers a “blended burger,” a patty made partially with mushrooms. Sonic’s, the American fast-food chain, will soon be the first chain offering blended burgers made with 25-30 percent mushrooms as a healthier alternative to traditional ones. The burger will be marketed for its taste, but the intentions are to help benefit the environment.
