Portobello Burgers with Chipotle Avocado Slaw
Today it’s all about the portobello burgers.
Juicy, meaty portobello burgers. Without the meat.
For most people, summertime means grilling time. Here in Florida, grilling time is an all year event. But the holidays of late spring and summer always give everyone a reason to grill. We usually grill something every weekend and sometimes even during the week. But when a holiday rolls around, we always make sure we have something to grill. I’m not really sure why a holiday makes it feel like a special day to grill, but it does.
Some of our favorite things to grill are seafood, veggies, chicken and burgers. I quit eating pork and beef a while back but it doesn’t mean I can’t enjoy a hearty burger. I’ve had a lot of great veggie burgers at restaurants and I’ve even made a few of my own but none of them work as great on a grill as a portobello mushroom does.
A portobello doesn’t fall apart. You can place it right on top of the grill grates to cook it. You don’t have to place it on aluminum foil or a grill plate like you would with a black bean burger or some other type of veggie burger. You get the good made on the grill flavor with a portobello, just like you would with a meat burger.
Things to know about these portobello burgers.
- It’s vegetarian.
- It can be grilled.
- You can top it with all of the classic burger toppings.
- Melted swiss cheese is it’s best friend.
- If you’re a meat eater, crispy bacon would go great with it.
- It tastes great with chipotle avocado slaw.

Wow, what a burger Julie!! I adore portobello’s on the grill, probably my favorite way to eat them and I think I prefer them to beef burgers actually. This is fabulous!
Thank you, Tanya!
I’m a lllllll about healthier burgers this summer. I’ve mostly stuck to chicken and turkey so far, but I need to try these!
Yeah, you should give the portobello burger a try! They are so good and meaty without the meat. :)
Julie, you are a lucky year-round-grilling lady! Though there are some hardcore Michiganders who grill well into the winter in their snow boots and jackets. This mushroom burger sounds amazing, especially with that zesty slaw!
Ha! My boyfriend is from MN, northern MN to be exact, and he said there are people who will grill, exercise outdoors and do other stuff outside in the dead of winter. I think they are crazy but I’ve never been in that cold weather before. So maybe they aren’t crazy…nah, they are crazy!
Thanks for stopping by, Amy!
I’ve always wanted to try Portobello burgers! The thick meatiness of mushrooms is so good. But wow, that slaw steals the show here! Chipotle and avocado? Did I just hear my heart skip a beat? Oh my lanta, that sounds incredible Julie!
You have to try one, Mary Frances! They are so darn good and meaty without the meat! :)

Now this is my kind of burger! I love portobello especially when grilled and it sounds amazing with the chipotle avocado slaw! Pinning :)

Fabulous recipe Julie!!! We’ve used the portobello mushrooms in place of buns before, but not in place of meat! Can’t wait to try that out. And that chipotle avocado slaw?! *Swoon*
Thank you, Serene!
Portobellos have so much flavor, especially when grilled, and I love the slaw in on the burger, way more fun than lettuce!
It sure is, Kari! Thanks so much for stopping by!
This is my kind of vegetarian burger. I absolutely love slaw on burgers anyways, but this chipotle avocado slaw sounds amazing. Love pairing avocado with something spicy!
I can put avocado on just about anything! Sometimes I like to use it in place of cheese on a burger and I always love to get a salad with avocado in it. Thanks for stopping by, Christin!
These look better than beef! Love this idea! #client
