Balsamic Marinated Portobello Burgers

This was my first experience with portobello burgers, but it will definitely not be my last! I have been eating tons of vegetarian meals lately (easy on the wallet..), and this one is definitely an amazing substitute for your average burger. I have made these portobellos before as a side to steaks- Which was awesome- but stacking them in a burger just makes it a meal!


  • 2 portobellos, cleaned and trimmed
  • 1 large red bell pepper, quartered
  • Avocado and goat cheese spread
  • Red onion, sliced thickly
  • 2 buns (I use the thin buns to not overwhelm the shrooms!


  • 2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced 
  • 1 tbsp onion, minced 
  • 3 tbsps olive oil
  • Herbs de Provence, or oregano and basil works great!
  • Pepper, to taste

Combine marinade ingredients in a ziploc bag, add portobellos and evenly spread the marinade over them. Leave to soak for at least 1 hour but more is better! If they look dry just add some more olive oil.

Grill mushrooms and bell pepper until tender. Toast buns, stack the burger and bell pepper, and serve with red onion and avocado spread. Enjoy!
