Portabella Mushroom "Burgers"

Mmmmm... A nice, juicy portabella mushroom wrapped in lettuce. Could it get any better? Yes. Hence the need for a recipe. You could also actually put everything in a bun or on bread or something if you would like. However, due to limited resources and extreme laziness, I just can't be bothered to cook up a hamburger bun. If you're feeling up to the challenge though, have a go at making these sandwich rolls. I've never personally tried them, but tell me how it goes :)

  • 2 portabella mushrooms
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 1 sweet onion (or whatever type you would like)
  • Romaine lettuce
  • Balsamic vinegar (optional)
  • Olive oil for cooking
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Rub the mushrooms with olive oil. Grill in an oiled pan for about 2 minutes per side.
  3. Salt and pepper the mushrooms and put them in the oven, gills facing up. Cook for 15 minutes.
  4. While the mushrooms are in the oven, cut the onions into rings and grill them in an oiled pan.
  5. Place each "burger" in a lettuce leaf.
  6. Add onion rings and avocado slices on top of the mushroom.
  7. Wrap everything up in the lettuce (add an extra leaf if you would like) and bite in! Yummmm.
*Variations: Feel free to put whatever you please in the "burger." Slice of tomato, sprouts, pesto, anything!
