grilled portabella burger

A few weeks ago I was at a wonderful restaurant called the Elbo Room in Saugatuck, MI. After a delightful conversation with the chef Lance, I enjoyed the most delish mushroom burger on naan there – if you are ever in the area I highly recommend it! If you aren’t making the trip to Saugatuck anytime soon, here is my rendition (minus the naan which I have not found a good, healthy recipe for yet.)

1 portabello mushroom cap, cleaned well and drizzled with olive oil
1 tbsp pesto
2 tbsp fire-roasted, diced tomatoes (I used a can)
mozzarella cheese to taste

Grill mushroom cap. sprinkle with mozzarella towards the end. Add tomatoes, pesto, and serve on your favorite naan, chapati, or hamburger bun. Make plenty and enjoy! At 5g saturated fat (depending on how much cheese), 24% of your daily calcium needs, and 9g protein this is a fun vegetarian option to the classic burger.
