This tastes like you're eating a regular beef burger! I love the earthy, smokey flavor of the mushroom and the cheese! The red pepper paste is a must! I've made this many, many times! Its amazingly good!

This is a Rachael Ray recipe! But the photo is my own!

How to Make Portobello Burger w/ Roasted Pepper Paste and Smoked Mozzarella

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine first three ingredients in the bottom of a large sealable plastic bag. Add mushroom caps, seal bag and shake bag to coat caps, then let the mushrooms marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. Grill mushrooms on an indoor electric grill, starting with caps down, turning to caps up, 6 minutes on each side. You can also pan fry in large nonstick skillet for the same amount of time. As they cook, season caps on each side with a little salt and pepper. Melt the smoked cheese over mushroom caps in the last minute of grill time.
  3. To make the pepper paste, combine the roasted peppers, EVOO, parsley, garlic, salt and pepper in food processor and pulse grind into a thick sauce.
  4. To serve, place the grilled mushroom caps topped with melted cheese on the bun bottoms. Top with spinach and onion. Spread bun tops with roasted pepper paste.
