Scale

Ingredients

  • 4 portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 ciabatta buns, halved
  • 1 red pepper, whole
  • 1 red onion, sliced into 1/2” slices
  • 1 cup spinach
  • salt to season

Avocado Chimichurri:

  • 2 avocado, mashed
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill to medium high heat, about 375-400 degrees F.
  2. Scoop out insides of portobello mushrooms and remove the stem. (I like to use a spoon to scoop the insides out, it’s easier)
  3. Drizzle olive oil over the portobello mushrooms and red pepper. Season with salt.
  4. Spray grill grates with cooking spray or rub down with olive oil soaked rag.
  5. Place portobello mushrooms, whole red pepper and onion slices on grill.
  6. Grill portobello mushrooms for 4-5 minutes per side, the red pepper for 5-6 minutes per side and the onion slices for 3-4 minutes per side. Remove from grill and let rest.
  7. When red pepper has cooled down, slice it.
  8. Grill the inside of the ciabatta roll halves for 2 minutes, just to slightly toast them.
  9. In a small bowl add, avocado, cilantro, garlic, lime juice, red wine vinegar, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Mash together.
  10. Assemble burgers. To each ciabatta roll add 2 tablespoons of avocado chimichurri, 1/4 cup spinach, portobello burger, red pepper, and red onion.
  11. Serve.
