Yield: 4
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cook Time: 12 Minutes


• 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, grilled peppers, etc.)


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.
