👩🏽‍🍳 METHOD⁣

Heat oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add the shallot and sauté until soft, 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, a generous pinch of salt, and sauté until soft and browned, 6 to 9 minutes, turning down the heat slightly, as needed.⁣
Stir in the tamari, vinegar, and mirin. Stir, reduce the heat, then add the garlic, and smoked paprika, and sriracha. Remove the pan from the heat and let cool slightly.⁣
In a food processor, combine the sautéed mushrooms, walnuts, flaxseed, brown rice, and ½ cup of the panko. Pulse until well combined.⁣
Transfer to a bowl and stir in the remaining panko.⁣
Form into 4 or 8 patties. ⁣
Preheat a grill to medium-high heat. Spray the grill with nonstick cooking spray and drizzle or brush the patties with olive oil. Grill for 4 to 5 minutes per side, or until char marks form. Remove from grill, brush with Worcestershire sauce, and serve with desired toppings.. 👌🏼⁣
