Burgers & Beer: Ultramarathon Burger & Wasabi Potatoes

If this burger is good fuel for Ultramarathoner, Scott Jurek, then think what it might do for the rest of us.

Scott Jurek’s Lentil-Mushroom Burgers

In Scott Jurek’s book, Eat & Run, reviewed in my Under the Covers book series this week, this famous ultramarathoner shares many of his favorite recipes. Unlike a few other vegan athletes, Scott’s recipes are doable for the average Joe. Not “over the top” with weird ingredients that you identify with another species:).

I hope to share many of his good eats with you. Jurek emphasizes that protein is not synonymous with meat. Not only will you improve your health, reduce your likelihood of disease, but you may actually improve your athletic performance on a plant based diet. Scott Jurek did. This is one recipe that is as “meaty” as you can get for a vegan entree.

Chow down brothers and sisters! After your run, of course!
