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.
