RECIPE - Portabello Mushroom Burgers

Portobello Mushroom Burgers Recipe

These are a great alternative to fat / calorie filled burgers.  Serve them on a whole grain thin bun for even more benefit.


  • 4 portobello mushroom caps

  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 teaspoon dried basil

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic

  • salt and pepper to taste

  • 4 (1 ounce) slices provolone cheese

  • Steps

    1. Place the mushroom caps, smooth side up, in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, whisk together vinegar, oil, basil, oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper. Pour over the mushrooms. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes or so, turning twice.
    2. Preheat grill for medium-high heat.
    3. Brush grate with oil. Place mushrooms on the grill, reserving marinade for basting. Grill for 5 to 8 minutes on each side, or until tender. Brush with marinade frequently. Top with cheese during the last 2 minutes of grilling.
    4. Serve on a whole grain thin bun with your choice of toppings.  Mine are leaf lettuce, tomatoe, red onion, dijon mustard, and a dill pickle!
