Portabello Mushroom and Tomato Sandwich With Caramelized Onions...
This sandwich is so awesome that I'm seriously considering opening a restaurant that serves it. My mom made it for me the other night, and I'm pretty sure I fell in love. It's lighter than a burger, but with all of the flavor and more. Serve with pickles, fries, sweet potatoes, or all three. Don't even bother with ketchup, mustard, barbecue, or ranch. They're not at all necessary.
Total cook time: about 15 minutes.
4 whole portabello mushrooms
1 large tomato, sliced
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 orange pepper, sliced (optional)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tbsp. olive oil
Dash of salt
Dash of black pepper
4 hamburger buns (ciabatta would be good)
1. Heat olive oil on medium-high heat. Add garlic, portabello mushrooms, and half of the balsamic. Cook 3 minutes.
2. Add the tomato, the orange pepper, the remaining balsamic, salt, and black pepper to the pan. Cook for an additional 5 to 7 minutes on medium-high to high heat.
3. Toast the buns, put veggies on the buns, and enjoy.
