Grilled Portobello Burger
I plan to make grilled Portobello mushroom burgers for our family's Labor Day party. They are delicious and meaty and easy to prepare on a gas or charcoal grill. Serve them on a whole wheat bun with your favorite toppings. I like to have a variety of spreads to smear on the buns before adding lettuce, sliced tomatoes and grilled onions.
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 min
1 Clean the mushrooms well and remove the stem. Combine the soy sauce, vinegar, garlic and Dijon mustard in a large bowl. Season with several twists of freshly ground pepper. Add the mushrooms and onion slices, turning several times to coat with the marinade. Let soak in the marinade for about 30 minutes, turning several times. Remove from marinade, place on a plate and reserve the marinade for brushing.
2 Heat a gas grill to medium high or light a charcoal grill.
3 Grill the mushrooms and the onions for about 5 minutes on each side, brushing with extra marinade during grilling.
4 To serve, on one side of the bun lay a lettuce leaf, tomato slice, grilled onion and top with the mushroom cap. Apply about 2 tablespoons of the spread of your choice to the top of the bun and set on top of the mushroom. Pick up with your hands and enjoy this delicious feast!
Hint: Some of our favorite spreads for these hearty burgers are, Red Pepper Aioli (recipe in Dips & Spreads), Cilantro Garlic Aioli (recipe in Dressings & Sauces), or Creamy Dill Tofu Dip, (recipe in Dips & Spreads). Or just keep it simple and use some ketchup and mustard as your spread.
