The Glorious Burger Only Portobello Style.......Simply Delicious!
THE GLORIOUS BURGER ONLY PORTOBELLO STYLE....SIMPLY DELICIOUS!
I love my trips to the market. I get a chuckle when I reach the checkout. It is so much fun to watch the reaction to what is in my basket on the face of the checkout person. I usually have a strange collection of things. This week I had one potato that was just dug up and looked to good to pass up, one red onion, and one beautiful portobello mushroom. I knew that I had tomatoes and zucchini in my garden, so the most natural thing to do was to plan on making a mushroom burger topped with my garden fixings for dinner. I love portobello mushrooms for numerous reasons. For me, they can take the place of a hamburger or steak. They have a intense flavor and a meaty texture so I really feel as though I am eating meat. It is a wonderful substitution! They are a great source of fiber and don't have many calories, which is a win, win situation for me. Cooking is a breeze. I just throw them on the grill with a little olive oil, salt, and freshly ground pepper and I'm done. I layered mine with tomato, lightly grilled zucchini slices, and red onion. It was out of this world! A slice of smoked gouda or smoked mozzarella would have been a great addition too! So the next time that you find yourself staring at a portobello mushroom in the market, buy it, experiment, and enjoy! Life is filled with little surprises, let a portobello be one of those surprises. Happy Cooking!
