Portobello Mushroom Burgers

portabella mushromPortobello mushroom burgers, sometimes also spelled portobello, are actually the same species as a crimini mushroom. Generally, the mushroom is called a crimini when small and a portobello when its cap has grown to about four to six inches in diameter. These large brown mushrooms have a meaty texture and can be grilled, roasted or used as an ingredient in other dishes.

Ingredients

4 Large Portobello Mushrooms – Stemmed
1 Cut into 4 thick slices Ripe Tomato
4 Whole wheat buns
2 Halved, seeded and de-veined Red Bell Peppers
1/2 to 3/4 Cup Herbed Vinaigrette
1 Large – Cut into 4 thick slices Vidalia Onion

Instructions

  1. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill. Grill the mushrooms and peppers over medium-hot heat, basting with the vinaigrette until softened, about 3-4 minutes per side. Add the onion slices, baste with Vinaigrette, and grill until softened, about 5 minutes a side (Turn the onion slices carefully so that they don’t fall apart)
  2. Lightly toast the buns, then layer with the grilled portabello, red peppers, onion, and tomato.
  3. Serve with Mango Ketchup or any other favorite condiment.
