• 4 large portobello mushrooms, stems trimmed

• Olive oil spray

• Salt and pepper

• 4 hamburger buns, toasted

• 1/2 c. jarred roasted red bell peppers


Spray the mushrooms all over with olive oil or cooking spray. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Grill over medium-high heat for 7 to 8 minutes per side, until tender. Serve on toasted buns, topped with roasted peppers and any other desired garnishes.

Variation: Grill mushrooms, cup side down, for 10 minutes, then turn. Fill the cavities with slivers of Comté or Gruyère cheese and a heaping tablespoon of crème fraîche and grill for 10 more minutes.
