Portobello Mushroom Burgers by Spicie Foodie

The last couple of weeks left in the year are busy times. Many are preparing for Christmas and New Years celebrations. With all the party planning, present shopping, wrapping, and parties to attend many of us are left with little time for healthy meals. Today I want to share a meal that is super easy and fast to prepare.

Portobello Mushroom Burgers by Spicie Foodie

These vegan “burgers” are made using large portobello mushrooms. They can be topped and served with any of your favorite burger toppings and side dishes. I love cheese (thought that excluded them from the vegan category), grilled onions, tomatoes, and chile peppers on my burgers. That is what you see in the photos. There really is no recipe to this recipe. Basically all you do is grilled the portobellos until they are soft. The time will depend on how large and thick the mushrooms are.

This is one of my favorite meatless meals. In fact portobellos are a great option for eating healthier and for meatless meals. These burgers go great with a side of Spicie Roasted Potatoes. If you don’t fancy a “burger” check out my Grilled Portobello Steaks (Vegan) or Jalapeno Portobello “Steak” Wraps (Vegan with Beef Steak Option)

The burger looks stunning. Each detail is captured to perfection :)

I love portobello burgers too. I wish I could find the mushrooms here. I see their smaller cousins, which I guess I could turn into a burger, but it wouldn’t be the same. Although now you’ve got me thinking….

That’s a burger I will love too!

You have made the burger look glorious. Portobello mushrooms are the best.

i have tried burgers with lentils, beans and even soy but not ones with mushrooms yet. these look amazingly delish!

Nancy, the burger looks amazing! I usually have portobellos in omelette. I am now very tempted to have them in my burgers :)


15 Sandra December 18, 2012 at 1:28 PM

That looks as filling and delicious as any beef or turkey burger I have seen.


16 Ramona December 18, 2012 at 2:52 PM

What a great version of the veggie burger! Love that it’s really one huge mushroom.

I often make these in the summer when my vegetarian friend comes over but we want BBQ. It is very delicious and quick. Time savers are perfect now but I would have to bbq in the snow :-D

I love a good mushroom burger–I never get tired of them! I just ate dinner and now I’m feeling hungry again… :D
