Healthy Portobello Mushroom Burger


Have you ever had a portobello mushroom burger? If so, you probably know that it is SUPER delicious. If you haven't had the chance to try it yet, go ahead and scroll to the bottom of this post, print the recipe, and get on it right now! Because you're missing out big time, my friend.

Basically a mushroom burger is when you use a thick portobello mushroom instead of a patty. Genius right? 


If you know me, or follow my Instagram, you know how much I love my sandwiches/veggie burgers. #favoritefood

This portobello burger is pretty high up on the list of my favorite burger/sandwich combos. That may not mean much coming from a gal who loves pretty much all sandwiches. No discrimination here! 


But this burger really is magic.

For one, it's super filling. But also it tastes like a legit burger. The texture is awesome. It's hearty. It's flavorful. It's GOOD FOR YOU. 

Seriously, give this burger a shot for lunch or dinner sometime this week. You won't be disappointed! 

Thank you for stopping by and have an awesome day!

Healthy Portobello Mushroom Burger
A healthy, plant-based take on a traditional American food.
  • 2 slices whole wheat grain bread (dairy-free)
  • 1 portobello mushroom cap
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • a few slices yellow onion
  • small handful fresh kale
  • 1/2 tomato, sliced
  • 1/2 avocado, mashed
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • to taste, salt and pepper
1. Heat coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add the portobello cap (smooth side up) and the onions. Cook for 6-8 minutes, flipping the mushroom 2-3 times, or until tender. 2. Toast the bread if desired. Toss the kale with olive oil until it is evenly coated. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. 3. Layer the sandwich starting with the kale on the bottom, then the mushroom, onion, tomato, and finally the avocado mash. Sprinkle with more salt and pepper as desired.
