Portobello Burgers with Basil Goat Cheese Spread

Featured by Wrath Wines in the Platinum Wine Club.

Ingredients

4 large portobello mushrooms, stems sliced off
4 hamburger buns
4 oz. soft goat cheese
1 cup packed fresh basil
1/2 tsp minced garlic
Sea salt
1 Tbsp olive oil, divided
Optional toppings of choice (sliced tomato, caramelized onions, lettuce, etc.)

Instructions

Make the goat cheese spread first. In a food processor, combine the goat cheese, fresh basil, minced garlic and a teeny tiny pinch of sea salt. Process until smooth. Keep in the fridge until ready to use.

Heat up grill to medium-high heat. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil all over each portobello cap. Sprinkle with salt. Grill mushrooms for about 6 minutes per side, or until they are very tender and juicy. Once grilled, assemble the burgers. Place a grilled mushroom cap on each bun, topped with a large spoonful of goat cheese spread and whatever additional toppings you choose.
