Absolutely the Best Portabella Burgers!!!

I got this recipe out of a healthy recipes cookbook called "Crazy Plates" and it is by far my favorite! I will write the recipe as they did but know that I like to add avocado slices and tomato to the burger and also I prefer to leave out the brown sugar in the spread. Sometimes this makes for a messy burger so I cut up the mushroom and make a wrap out of the ingredients. Either way is really good! Oh and for anyone else who may not know, as I didn't, chickpeas are garbanzo beans. :) Also, if you have any left over spread, I like to use it in a regular sandwich wrap with turkey, spinach, tomato, cheese, and olives.

ingredients

directions

  • To make chickpea spread, combine all of the first 9 ingredients in a blender or processor and whirl until smooth. Refrigerate until ready to use.
  • In a small bowl, combine olive oil, vinegar, and basil. Brush mixture over both sides of mushrooms, pepper strips, and onion rings. Arrange vegetables in a baking pan and place under the broiler, about 5 inches from heat source. Broil for 3 minutes. Remove pan from oven, turn veggies over, baste with any remaining oil mixture, and return to oven. broil for 3-4 more minutes, until veggies are tender. (In the summer I also grill the veggies and it tastes wonderful!).
  • To serve, line bottom of bun with spinach leaves (lettuce doesn't taste as good in my opinion). Place one whole mushroom over top. Spread with chickpea mixture over mushroom. Top with peppers, onions, and top half of bun.
