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.
