This was all that I wanted tonight! And boy did it satisfy! Sometimes a veggie girl just needs her a little portabello love, you know? This recipe is so simple and healthy, without any fussy ingredients. You can serve this with a fresh side salad, or some oven sweet potato fries, or how about some fresh corn from your farmers market? I served ours with a delicious gunsmoke coleslaw that I got over at the Allotment 2 kitchen blog...
Get ready to get your face messy, this is a good one!
Summer Portabello Sandwich
What You Need:
4 whole wheat hamburger buns, or your favorite whole grain artisan bread
4 large portabello mushrooms, stems removed
2 large vine ripened beefsteak tomatoes
Clausen sandwich sliced dill pickles (found in the cold section at most stores)
1 purple onion
Vegan pepperjack cheese (optional, we like Tofu Rella brand)
microgreens, or if you can't find these, sprouts will work fine
Vegan mayo (I like Veganaise by Follow Your Heart)
Annies organic ketchup
Annies organic smooth Dijon mustard
2-3 Tbsp. Olive oil
salt and pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly clean the tops of the mushrooms with a damp cloth. Do not submerge mushrooms in water. Slice the red onions to 1/4 inch thick slices. Place the onions and mushrooms (gill side up) on a heavy baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Bake for about 15 minutes.
While the mushrooms and onions cook, prep the rest of your ingredients.
Slice the tomatoes and sprinkle them with just a tiny pinch of salt and pepper.
In a bowl, mix about 1/4 cup vegan mayo with about a Tbsp. of ketchup and 1/2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard. Mix well. set aside.
When the mushrooms and onions are done cooking, slice the mushrooms into about 4 or 5 slices per mushroom.
Slice and toast bread. If using the Vegan pepperjack cheese, place a slice on the bread and lighty melt under a broiler. Spread the top slice with a little mayo mixture. Add a few tomato slices, a few pickle slices, portabello slices, red onion slices, and a big bunch of microgreens or sprouts.
