Portobello Mushroom Burger


If you like mushrooms, then this is the burger for you and once you have added all the trimmings you will find it difficult to tell this juicy burger from a meat one. This one isn’t 100% vegan as I like to melt a slice of smoked cheese on the top, but you can substitute this for vegan cheese and away you go.

Serves 2

2 Portobello mushrooms
2 Bread rolls
Bunch watercress
Sliced tomatoes
1 tablespoon British cold pressed extra virgin rapeseed oil
Pickled red onion
Smoked cheese
Vegan mayonnaise

  • Thinly slice the red onion and place in a bowl.
  • Cover with the juice from a jar of pickled gherkins, for around an hour – or white wine vinegar & a little castor sugar
  • Peel the mushrooms and drizzle with oil
  • Grill for 5-7 minutes a side
  • Toast your rolls

Construct your burger (I like to add few slices of red chilli on mine) – bon appétit
