Mushroom Burger Recipe

Two evenly shaped portabella mushrooms, remove stem.
32 oz. baby spinach
2 Tbsp. sliced fresh garlic
4 Pcs. Drained, oil marinated sundried tomatoes
6 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil (E.V.O.O.)
½ Tsp. Sea salt
½ Cup soft goat cheese
¼ Tsp. grated lemon zest

1.Preheat oven at 350ᵒF

2.In a medium bowl, rub the mushrooms with 3 tsp. of E.V.O.O., place mushrooms in a baking tray and cook in the preheated oven for 10 minutes. Remove baking tray from oven and set aside.

3.In a 4-quart pan, use the remaining E.V.O.O. to sauté the garlic until it is golden brown, add the spinach and salt and sauté on medium heat. After 3-4 minutes remove pan from stove and set aside.


1.The portabella mushrooms will serve as the "burger buns". Use one mushroom, the outer part of the mushroom as a base and stuff the hollow part of the mushroom first with spinach. Use a metal spoon to add the fresh goat cheese, then add the grated lemon zest. Finally top with the other mushroom.

2.Serve burger as any other burger or you can serve with knife and fork.

I have never tried to use a portabella mushroom as the burger base. I have put it on burger buns, but I think that this a a different way to make a burger and to cut out bread calories. I shall have to try it with this and other stuffings.
