Here is one of my favorite ways to eat a portabella mushroom as a sandwich.
You can make so many variations of this sandwich just like a regular burger.
The meatiness of a portabella is a great sub for any meat entrée that is much healthier and cheaper than any meat counterpart.
Mediterranean Portabello Burger
Yield : 4 servings
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
4 portabella mushroom caps, stems and gills removed
4 large hamburger buns
1/2 cup sliced red peppers
1/2 cup chopped tomato
1/4 cup crumbled reduced-fat feta cheese
1 tablespoon red-wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
2 cups loosely packed mixed baby salad greens
Preheat grill to medium-high.
Mash garlic and salt on a cutting board with the side of a knife until it's a smooth paste. Mix the paste with 1 tablespoon oil in a small dish.
Lightly brush the oil mixture over portabellas and then on one side of each slice of bread.
Combine red peppers, tomato, feta, vinegar, oregano and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium bowl.
Grill the mushroom caps until tender, about 4 minutes per side; grill the bread until crisp, about 1 minute per side. Assemble sandwiches and serve.
