portobello mushroom burger

the BEST vegetarian burger recipe

Ingredients 

4 large Portobello mushrooms, stems removed
1/2 cup tomato-based barbecue sauce or
olive oil mixed with 1 crushed garlic clove and 1/2 teaspoon rosemary and freshly-ground black pepper to taste
4 15-grain rolls
toppings:
grilled onion
slices lettuce leaves and sliced tomato
muenster cheese and chopped almonds
Cajun hot sauce
fresh minced herbs
pesto
mayonnaise,
sliced avocado,
chopped raw onion,
sprouts
Chopped mushroom stems sauteed in butter or olive oil

Instructions 

1. Prepare a medium fire in the grill. 2. Brush the mushroom caps with olive oil or barbecue sauce. 3. Grill mushrooms (and onion slices, if you like them), turning occasionally until tender and grill-marked, about 10 minutes. Grill the rolls until lightly toasted, about 2 minutes on each side. 4. To assemble the sandwiches, lightly brush the cut side of the toasted rolls with the remaining olive oil or barbecue sauce. Add Portobello burgers and desired toppings. 5. If pan-frying the mushrooms, simply cook in a little olive oil over medium heat until tender, turning occasionally. Serves 4.
