Grilled Portobello Burgers! GF, Vegan, MD!

Posted Oct 07 2012 9:34pm

Today was one of those days where the sun never came out. Yep. It was gray and rainy all day. I have to be honest…it takes a lot of will power to be productive on days like this…especially on a Sunday.

Roxy’s got the right idea:)

So I thought I’d brighten up today by sharing one beauty of a recipe.

A real treat. A bit of a splurge, you could say…even though it was mainly veggies! I made grilled GF Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burgers! Ooooh boy, these were amazing.

A beautifully layered steaky mushroom, creamy mashed avocado, melty goat cheese (Old Kentucky Tomme) or Daiya cheeze, a “fried” farm fresh pastured egg (optional), tomato, grilled onion, and a fluffy GF bun! *swoon*

hellooo avocado!

Here’s what you need 1 portobello mushroom per person
1 avocado, mashed w/ salt
1 sweet yellow onion, sliced and grilled
1 tomato, sliced
Cheese of choice – Daiya or raw goat milk
*optional* 1 egg per person
Udi’s GF Bun

gluten free onion rings! recipe coming soon!

I grilled 3 large portobello mushroom caps (1 p/p). I lightly brushed the tops with 1 tsp EVOO, salt and pepper. I grilled the rib side down first, so that when I flipped it, I could fill it with a bit of shredded goat (or Daiya) cheese, so it could melt.

Meanwhile, I mashed 1 avocado with salt, and sliced a tomato for the burger.

After the mushrooms have grilled for about 5-6 minutes per side, I took them off and let them cool for just a second while I fried the eggs–no oil, just a light spritz of olive oil spray.

Here’s how I layered the burger: bun -– avocado -– mushroom cap with melted cheese -– ”fried” egg –- tomato -– grilled onion -– organic ketchup/mustard -– bun. Lets just say I was wearing half of it by the end of the meal!

These burgers were amazing. Hands down, one of the best things around. The mushroom was so chewy and “meaty,” and with the melty cheese…it was just divine! This chewiness, combined with the creamy and fresh avocado was just faaabulous. A burger worth celebrating.

What do you do on a rainy Sunday? Movie marathon? Stay in your PJ’s?

Until tomorrow!
