Summer is in the air, and the only thing I want to do right now is to soak in the sunlight, eat cold desserts and... summer burgers of various kinds for lunch and dinner. So if you are like me, a person who don't eat meat, or just a person who can see yourself not eating meat for once, then I really want to recommend this burger to you all. Because this burger is absolutely fantastic. And you know how thick, rich and satisfying a burger can taste? Well, this one just feels so fresh! You really have to taste this. This is probably one of my new favorites!
I am using Portobello mushrooms as the burger for my vegan burger. Have you ever tried it? Oh it tastes really good when being marinated and then grilled until soft. This burger in combination with a few other ingredients creates this mouthwatering vegan burger. I love this so much, and let me tell you about my dressing…
I am not using a traditional burger dressing in my burger today. I wanted to make something that is more fresh and which works nicely with the remaining ingredients. As a result, I have my wonderful arugula basil dressing. This dressing is by the way one of my favorites. I use it in bulgur, in salads, wraps, everywhere! I love this so much, and now - I’m using it in my burger too!
Ps. you can also add vegan cheese or halloumi to the burger. It's good!
Vegan portobello burger
3 big portobello mushrooms
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp barbecue spicing
a hand of arugula
some leaves of fresh basil
1 tbsp water
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp apple cider vinegar
a pinch of salt
a small garlic clove
Marinad red onion
3 burger breads
Cut off the shaft from the mushrooms.
Combine olive oil, soy and barbecue spicing in a small bowl and brush over the marinade over your mushrooms.
Heat a grill pan (or your actual grill) and grill your mushrooms on both sides until soft and light brown.
Add all the ingredients for the dressing in a mixer (or a bowl and use a stick blender). Mix until lump free.
If you want to, roast or grill the burger bread. Garnish with bread with sliced tomato and avocado, some of the dressing, the portobello burger, red onion and more dressing. End with the lid of the bread.
