  • Mash garlic and salt on a cutting board with the side of a knife until it's a smooth paste. Mix the paste with 1 tablespoon oil in a small dish. Lightly brush the oil mixture over portobellos and then on one side of each slice of bread.

  • Combine red peppers, tomato, feta, olives, vinegar, oregano and the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a medium bowl.

  • Grill the mushroom caps until tender, about 4 minutes per side; grill the bread until crisp, about 1 minute per side.

  • Toss salad greens with the red pepper mixture. Place the grilled mushrooms top-side down on 4 half-slices of the bread. Top with the salad mixture and the remaining bread.

Fantastic burger or salad! We made this recipe with four portobello mushrooms. My husband and I had whole mushrooms on buns with half the red pepper salad and greens in the sandwich as directed the first night. The next night I chopped up the leftover mushrooms and tossed them with the other half of the red pepper/feta combo and fresh greens and served it as a dinner salad. It's delicious both ways! I liked it so much that I made it again on a Sunday we had the salad version for dinner Sunday night and I took the chopped mushroom/red pepper/feta combo with fresh greens to work the next day and shared them with my coworker. She loved it too! Pros: Easy satisfying refrigerates well overnight. Read More

An Italian Panini! I had to change a few things up but it was still fabulous. Instead of sourdough bread I used ciabatta bread. I also used goat cheese instead of feta and did not need the vinager or oil as my tomatoes and olives already had that. It came out better than I could have imagined. I will be serving it often. My husband and neighbor both raved. Pros: Quick and easy. Cons: None Read More

Last night I fixed this for my husband and I. I only fixed 2 to start. When my husband asked whey he only had 1 "burger" I told he I would not waste a 2nd one on him if he didn't like it. Knowing he would eat even if he didn't like it because he was hungry. Well he had 2 and said this is on the list for making again! YES it was delicious! Thanks! Read More

I love Love LOVE this recipe!!! My husband is not a fan of new things and he now asks for this to be put into the menu rotation often. I usually make a couple extras so we can have them for lunch the next day. The dressing for the greens is great when it soaks into the mushroom overnight. Thanks so much for these wonderful recipes!!! It has made eating healthy a wonderful experience for all in my home. Read More

Tried this recipe this evening. No idea what to cook and looking for something different. I was a little leery about trying a portobello recipe before. Wasn't sure about the reception on the home front. My carnivore husband ate two! Its will definitely be on the menu on a regular basis. Eileen in Milton Read More

Beautiful! This is fantastic! I roasted my own pepper so it was a little more time consuming than it needed to be (as written it would really easy). So full of flavor! Whole family loved it. Will definitely make again. Pros: Flavorful meatless filling Read More

Great dish great for picnics works fabulous in a wrap! Pros: easy quick flavorful healthy fats vegetarian adaptable Cons: potentially high in sodium topping is saucy and drips a little Read More

YUM!! My son and I LOVE this recipe. It is our go-to summer vegetarian recipe. We usually just broil the mushrooms and bread instead of pull out the grill. Also we usually end up with leftover toppings because my son doesn't like a lot so I just eat the toppings along on the toasted bread the next day! Pros: delicious Cons: a bit of work Read More
