The portobello burger. Delicious, nutritious and vegetatarian! (Except for the cheese, which you can leave off if you like)
Make as you would a regular burger, replace mince pattie with a portobello mushroom.
So very simple, and super yummy.
2 Tbsp. olive oil
1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning, crushed
4 slices provolone cheese
4 ciabatta rolls, split, or wholegrain bread
1/3 cup mayonnaise mixed with EXTRA hot chilli sauce
4 to 8 pieces roasted red sweet pepper
3/4 cup fresh basil leaves
Scrape gills from mushroom caps, if desired. Drizzle mushrooms with oil. Sprinkle salt, pepper and crushed Italian seasoning.
On charcoal grill, cook mushrooms on rack of uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 6 to 8 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking. Top each mushroom with a cheese slice. Place rolls, split sides down, on grill rack. Grill 2 minutes more, until cheese is melted, mushrooms are tender, and rolls are toasted.
Serve mushrooms on rolls. Pass mayonnaise, sweet pepper pieces, and basil leaves. Makes 4 servings.
