THE GLORIOUS BURGER ONLY PORTOBELLO STYLE....SIMPLY DELICIOUS!
I love my trips to the market. I usually have a strange collection of items in my basket. This week, I had one red onion, and one beautiful portobello mushroom. I knew that I had tomatoes and zucchini at home, so the most natural thing to do was to plan on making a mushroom burger 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! Portobellos 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 you find yourself in the market staring at a portobello mushroom, buy it, experiment, and enjoy! Life is filled with little surprises, let a portobello be one of them. Enjoy!
