Recipe type: Burger
Cuisine: Aussie
Serves: 1
  • 1 large mushroom - portobellos work well
  • 1 tspn rice bran oil
  • ½ tspn minced garlic
  • a pinch of chipotle seasoning (*optional)
  • 1 burger bun
  • 1 tspn tomato chutney
  • 2 thick slices of fresh tomato
  • 3 slices of beetroot (I used canned)
  • 1 tbspn garlic aioli + ½ tspn of ground cumin
  • OR
  • 1 tbspn hommus (vegan option)
  1. Heat your barbie to smokin hot.
  2. Trim the stem of the mushie so that it sits flat on a plate.
  3. In a small bowl add the oil and seasoning, then gently brush it over the top and bottom of the mushroom.
  4. Using your fingers, massage the garlic into the 'gills' of the mushroom.
  5. Pop on the flat hot plate of the barbie, smooth side down first and allow to brown and soften.
  6. Gently flip the mushroom and cook for another few minutes, until golden and soft.
  7. While you are waiting for your mushroom to cook prepare the rest of the burger.
  8. In a small bowl combine the aioli with the cumin.
  9. Split the bun in half using a sharp bread knife and then toast the inside on the grill until golden brown.
  10. Start from the base by adding chutney, then lettuce, then tomato, then beetroot.
  11. When the mushroom is ready place on top of the beetroot and then top with the aioli.
  12. Serve!
