Yum! I had these on those thin buns they sell now and actually ate two! Thanks for a great healthy lunch. I did add just a little mayo to the buns. Made for Vegetarian Swap March 2010.
LOVED this recipe! As a mushroom lover, I am more than happy to eat mushrooms instead of meat any day, so was bound to love this recipe. I was particularly delighted by the wonderful flavour from the light balsamic vinaigrette salad dressing and shall certainly keep this in mind - especially since I now have a bottle of it in the fridge! - when cooking my mushrooms in future. The instructions in this recipe were also really easy to follow. Always a plus! Probably one of the greatest things about a really low fat recipe is what it enables you to reasonably have WITH it. Tonight I combined making this recipe with making Kittencal's Perfect Caramelized Onions 89007, so I do confess to having NOT used the red onion. But I did add tomatoes, and they were top quality both in fleshiness and flavour. Thanks for sharing a great easy-to-make, and really very quick recipe, ellie_. And to others thinking of making this recipe, do note that most of the "preparation time" is in fact marinating time!
