Recipe: Easy, Delicious Portobello Pesto Mushroom Burger


Hello lovely people!

Today I am excited to tell you about a delicious vegetarian recipe I learned at a dinner party I attended recently. This recipe for Portobello Pesto Mushroom Burger was originally discovered by my friend’s husband, who is a “beginner” in the kitchen. So if he can make these, you can too! And, they are delicious. I’m getting hungry just writing about it.

Step 1: In a bowl, combine ½ cup balsamic vinegar, 1 tbsp red wine, 1 tbsp garlic powder, and salt. Pour in ¼ cup of olive oil into the bowl while whisking so that everything mixes well.

Step 2: Cut the stems off of 4 Portobello mushrooms, wash, and pat dry with a paper towel. Place the mushrooms cap-side down on a baking tray.

Step 3: Pour the mixture on top of the mushrooms and let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Step 4: Meanwhile, toast some bread. My friend’s husband toasted ciabatta bread on a pan.

Step 5: Cook the mushrooms on a pan until they are tender and done.

Step 6: Dress the toasted bread with pesto, tomatoes, lettuce, add in the mushrooms and close it with another slice of bread to make a sandwich.

You can also eat it open face to reduce carb intake. Bon apetit!

    Did you even read this recipe? How are we supposed to use red wine? Why include the recipe at all and why would you not offer a substitute instead if you had to?
