Portobello Burgers with Basil Goat Cheese Spread


4 large portobello mushrooms, stems sliced off

4 hamburger buns (preferable homemade! yes you can.)

4 oz soft goat cheese

1 cup packed fresh basil

1/2 tsp minced garlic

sea salt

1 tbsp olive oil, divided

optional toppings of choice: sliced tomato, caramelized onions, lettuce...


Make the goat cheese spread first. In a food processor, combine the goat cheese, fresh basil, minced garlic and a teeny tiny pinch of sea salt. Process until smooth. Keep in the fridge until ready to use.

Heat up grill to medium high.

Drizzle a little bit of olive oil all over each portobello cap. Sprinkle with salt.

Grill mushrooms for about 6 minutes per side, or until they are very tender and juicy. Once grilled, assemble the burgers. Place a grilled mushroom cap on each bun, topped with a large spoonful of goat cheese spread and whatever additional toppings you choose. Eat. And love.
