Delicious!

These burgers are SO simple to put together you could really make them any-time and anywhere. All you need are a few basic ingredients that most people would have at home already.

I saw these gorgeous portobello mushrooms at the Saturday market that were calling out to me, so when I got home I had to use them up. 

Low in saturated fat and cholesterol and high in fiber, Portobellos are an excellent source of copper, which your body needs to produce red blood cells and carry oxygen through your body. They also offer three important B-complex vitamins: riboflavin for maintaining healthy red blood cells; niacin for supple skin and properly functioning digestive and nervous systems; and pantothenic acid, which aids in the release of energy from the fat, protein, and carbohydrates in the food you eat.

Instructions

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 15 minutes

What you need:

  • A floury bap
  • 1 large portobello mushroom
  • Lettuce
  • Grated carrot
  • Tomato
  • Cucumber
  • Ripe avocado mixed with some lime and salt
  • Salt & pepper

What to do:

Put the mushroom in under a medium heat to high heated grill. Add some salt and pepper to flavour. Give the mushroom about 8 minutes on each side – depending on the size of it. The larger it is the longer it needs to cook obviously. You’ll know when it’s almost done when it start to gather some juice in the centre of the mushroom.

While they are grilling, prep your salads. Grate half a large carrot, slice some cucumber, tomato and lettuce. Mash an avocado in a bowl with some salt, pepper and fresh lime juice. You can add anything you like here really, its personal preference. Some onion would be good too, I didn’t have any sadly 😦

Pop your bap in under the grill to toast slightly for a few minutes.

When everything is ready just start stacking the ingredients up high on your bap. I added some  of the avocado mix to both sides of the bap as it helped to seal everything in. 🙂

I burned the bap a little, and I only had one so I had to eat it. Still tasted great though.
