A great take on the vegetarian hamburger using portobello mushrooms. I like to serve this with barbecued veggies and a glass of white wine!


Serves: 6 

  • 1/3 cup (85ml) balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (65ml) olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 6 portobello mushroom caps
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
  • 6 round bread rolls, split, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 6 leaves lettuce
  • 6 tomato slices

Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. Preheat the barbecue for medium heat and lightly oil the grate. Whisk together the balsamic vinegar, olive oil and garlic in a small bowl.
  2. Arrange the portobello mushrooms gill-side up on a baking tray. Brush the mushrooms with some of the vinegar mixture and allow to marinate for 3 to 5 minutes.
  3. Place the marinated mushrooms on the preheated barbecue gill-side down. Cook mushrooms until tender while brushing both sides of the mushrooms with the remaining marinade, about 4 minutes on each side.
  4. Mix the mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, lemon juice and basil in a small bowl. Butter the toasted rolls then spread with the mayonnaise mixture. Divide the mushrooms, lettuce and tomato slices evenly to make 6 sandwiches.
