I wanted to share this recipe and describe how I made it at the end it was so very good.
Portabella Mushroom burgers (4 servings) from the Vegan bible
1 tbsp olive oil divided
3/4 cup thinly sliced shallots
1/2 cup vegan mayonaisse
4 large portobello mushrooms washed, patted dry and stems removed
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 cloves of garlic minced
4 whole grain hamburger buns
4 oz dairy free mozzarella cheese cut into 1/4 inch slices
2 jarred roasted red bell pepper, rinsed patted dry and cut into strips
Heat 1 tsp oil in a saucepan over medium heat add in shallots and cook until soft and golden brown. combine with mayonnaise and basil in a small bowl and set aside.
Preheat broiler, line a baking sheet with foil drizzle both sides of the mushroom with remaining oil sprinkle with salt and pepper .
place mushroom caps on prepared baking sheet cap sides down sprinkle with garlic and broil 8 minutes turning once half way through.
Spread mayonnaise mixture on to the inside of the buns serve with bell peppers, mozzarella, and extra shallots if desired. Enjoy!
So my changes were to eliminate the oil and use vegetable broth to saute the shallots. The stems of the mushrooms were short so i left them in place. Next time I will remove them chop and add them to the shallots and vegan mayo, as they were not cooked as well as I would like though the caps were perfect. I eliminated the hamburger buns as I am trying to stay away from bread which can be a trigger to eat too much for me. Instead when the mushrooms were done I placed the cheese slices to the underside portion of the mushroom caps, and placed them back in the oven (which I turned off) and let the cheese melt. I used vegan sliced American cheese instead of mozzarella since that is what I had. Once the cheese melted I spooned the vegan mayo blend inside the mushroom caps, along with the sliced peppers and placed the caps together so they looked hamburger like. They were pretty juicy so I ended up eating them with a knife and fork. I will look at the recipe in the edgy veg's book next time as I made her version previously and she used the microwave and topped the mushrooms with a plate to push out the liquid and you could actually eat the caps like a hamburger. In this way you would have 2 servings. I did like the juiciness of the mushrooms and I will definately make this again!
