Here is a great meatless burger that non-vegetarians will also enjoy. This burger is first marinated with balsamic vinegar, basil, rosemary and garlic, then grilled, then a slice of grilled feta cheese is placed on top to make this burger really flavourful.
Portobello (also spelled portabella or portabello) mushrooms are brown crimini mushroom left to grow to reach 4-6 inches in diameter. Like other mushrooms they absorb flavor from marinade really well.
I got this recipe from a friend at work (thanks Kim!), and I thought this would be a great recipe to share.
