I would call this a fun-burger. The texture of a thick, juicy mushroom is very satisfying, and works well in a bun! Fix it up with burger toppings and you’e got an enjoyable meal!
- Leftover large, cooked Portabella mushroom
- Whole-grain or sprouted bread or bun
- Sliced tomato
- Lettuce leaves
- Sliced Onion
- Mustard, ketchup or condiments of choice
Assemble mushroom in bread with fixings and pack for lunch or anytime.
To cook mushrooms:
Cover the bottom of a frying pan with any, or a mix, of the liquid above, along with a few dashes of spice. Heat to just medium. Place mushrooms in the pan and cook for about 8 minutes on medium heat, not hot. – It depends on how thick the mushrooms are. You may need to lower heat, and add more liquid – splash with vinegar or broth. Keep a touch of liquid in the bottom of the pan as the mushrooms cook, and allow them to brown but not blacken. Flip the mushrooms and cook for approximately another 5 minutes, using the same guidelines.
— Place on whole-grain burger buns and add your favorite condiments for a great burger, or on the plate for a great steak!
— Serve with mashed potatoes, frozen vegetables and a hearty salad.
