The men in my family may not agree, but I think portobello burgers are just as appetizing as beef burgers. They’re super juicy, plus low-calorie and heart-healthy. There’s really no reason to miss the meat.

Especially when you slather on a white bean spread flavored with rosemary, garlic, and a little cayenne to heat things up. Finish your burgers off with some fresh, crisp lettuce and grilled onions and you have a flavorful meal on the table in around 30 minutes.

I used fresh white rolls, but a good multi-grain roll or bun would be even better.

  1. I totally agree about portobello burgers! Sometimes over the summer when all the guys are grilling meat, I just grill up a bunch of big ol’ mushrooms–it’s my favorite! And that white bean spread??? It looks soooo yummy!

  2. This reminds me of a grilled portobello dish I’ve made before. It also had a bean spread on top. It sounds fantastic as a burger. I have to try this!
