Seared Portabella Burger With a Creamy Guacamole  


I call this the "Queen of the Shrooms". What can be said about that majesty of mushrooms? The range of species says enough, they can be transformed into so many different food substitutions and this is why I have falling in love with the Portabella.  You'll always find her in our home.

Chef Notes


  1. Substitution for gluten bread: You can add these mushrooms to any type of bread you choose and they can also be added to lettuce wraps or tortillas.

  2. Olive oil can be replaced with water, you must keep in eye on them more if using water to prevent the mushrooms from burning
