Balsamic Portobello “Burger”

Don't just stick to meat when making burgers, try an all natural portobello mushroom. Marinated in balsamic vinegar and served in between two slices of bread, you won't miss the meat.


  • Prep Time : 15+ 30 min marinade min
  • Cook Time : 20 min
  • Ready Time : 35 min


4 burgers


  • 8 large Portobello mushroom caps, stems ad gills removed
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¾ cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt plus ½ teaspoon, divided
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cubes froze crushed garlic, defrosted
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 8 slices whole wheat bread
  • 8 slices tomato on the vine
  • 4 large leaves basil


  1. In a Ziploc bag, combine mushrooms, balsamic, and ¼ cup olive oil. Seal and marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  2. Season mushrooms with 1 tablespoon salt and pepper. Cook mushrooms on a preheated grill or grill pan for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until softened and nicely browned.
  3. While mushrooms are cooking, in a small bowl whisk together remaining ½ cup olive oil, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, garlic, and oregano. Brush both sides of each slice of bread with garlic oil and grill 2 to 4 minutes or until lightly toasted and warmed.
  4. Assemble each “burger” by topping a slice of bread with 2 slices of tomato, 2 mushroom caps, a basil leaf, and another slice of bread.

    I don’t use Balsamic Vinegar , because I can’t find any products with a Kosher mark on it. Balsamic products come from grapes. Is this the reason that products from them may not automatically be Kosher???

    • Yes, you are right, but there are quite a few brands out there with kosher balsamic, Bartenura makes one that is pretty available.
