Portabella Burgers

March 26, 2012 132 Comments

The past few weeks of beautiful weather we have been grilling and eating healthy.  A new favorite of ours is a portabella veggie burger. First I marinaded the mushrooms in olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  Then I used my grill basket for my peas, asparagus and sweet onions.  I grilled the veggies until tender.  The mushrooms grill for about 4 minutes each side.  I added a slice of fresh mozzarella, tomatoes, salt and pepper. Darren is always dashing in front of the camera for an appearance (usually when the lighting is juuust right!). So juicy and delicious, you will not even miss the meat! It is supposed to be super cold tonight, I am hoping all the lettuce and flowers I planted will survive!  Hopefully, hopefully when the warm weather comes again, it will be here to stay for awhile!

Being a veggie I love these. Waiting for some good weather to give this recipe a go and sit on the balcony alfresco style. Might have to switch out the mozzarella for hollumi though.

Portabella burgers are my favorite! Especially because I love mushrooms more than any other food (besides chocolate)

I like in Korea, where portabella mushrooms don’t exist…I know what I am going to eat upon my return to the States! Giada has a wonderful recipe too: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/giada-de-laurentiis/mushroom-parmesan-recipe/index.html

The portibello mushrooms look yummy. I understand that mushrooms are very
high in iron and zero fat. the sauteed green beans also look great. I think the
grilling is a wonderful way for these nutritional foods.JFN

These look yummy and a great alternative to meat. I was watching The Chew yesterday and I think they made a burger similar but the mushrooms acted as the bun.

Portobello burgers are my fave, and you’re right one doesn’t even miss the meat. The most important part, I’ve found, is a proper bun. A burger or sambo is only as good as the bread it’s served on…
