We've teamed up with Planet Oat to share the many delicious ways you can enjoy their Oatmilk at home—from frothing up your morning cappuccino to using at as the base for creamy pastas, like this hearty mushroom stroganoff.


A bowl of creamy pasta is as good as comfort food gets. You could go many routes to make it, from a classic fettuccine Alfredo to mac and cheese, but a favorite of mine has always been beef stroganoff. What it lacks in physical appeal and an enticing-sounding name, it more than makes up for in flavor. My mom would make ours in a big skillet, sautéing seasoned strips of beef in a cream and white wine sauce, then spooning it all over egg noodles.

Welcome to Living Wild by Danielle Prewett, a wild game cook and contributing editor at MeatEater. In this series, she explores what it means to eat consciously and live mindfully. For Danielle, that way of life relies on hunting, fishing, foraging, and gardening. Her stories aim to inspire you to live a life more closely connected to the earth and to celebrate its natural bounty in your kitchen.


In the U.S., wild mushrooms have earned a reputation for being rare ingredients reserved for fine dining. I was reminded of this when I popped into a gourmet grocery store to buy artisanal oil and vinegar. The doors opened into a robust produce section filled with a variety of heirloom vegetables. I spotted the refrigerated wall lined with baskets of wild mushrooms. Chanterelles were $40 a pound; morels were $60! I walked right past them with a smirk on my face, knowing that two pounds were already sitting in my fridge. It felt good to have that edible gold sitting in my fridge, foraged for a fraction of the cost.

Oh, hello. Meet: your perfect portobello mushroom burger. This giant meaty mushroom is irresistible on is own. But add it to a burger bun and pile it high with toppings, and it’s downright outrageous! So you can make it in any season, we’ve got two methods: grilled or roasted. Of course, we prefer it grilled and eaten on the patio with the wafting smell of charcoal..but that’s just us! It’s fantastic in any season. Here are all the tricks to the very best portbello mushroom burger (we think).

Make a portobello mushroom burger: grilled or roasted!

To get the very best portobello mushroom burger there is, we think the grill is the number 1 method. But if it’s not summer and you want to make it too: roasting is nearly as tasty. Here’s a breakdown on both methods:

  • Grilled portobello burger: You’ll use our Grilled Portobello Mushrooms method: grill those babies for about 15 minutes at medium high heat. Start with the gill side up, so when you flip all the extra liquid goes into the grates.
  • Roasted portobello burger: You need only 15 minutes at 450 degrees Fahrenheit to roast up your mushrooms! Make sure to drain the extra liquid. Sometimes we like to add a few shakes of liquid smoke before roasting to emulate a grilled flavor. Just be careful not to overdo it!

Two important things to know about portbello burgers

The key to the perfect portobello mushroom burger is the toppings. An important thing to keep in mind: portobello mushrooms have a soft texture. Sometimes they can get a little lost in the bun. This is why the toppings are so important. They add contrasting textures to make for a satisfying sandwich.

Another thing: portobello mushrooms are not filling! Because you’re using them in place of a protein, you’d think that they’d be just as filling as burger. Nope! A portobello mushroom burger is not filling unless you add toppings that have some protein. That’s why we like to load ours with cheese…

Load on toppings to add texture and keep it filling!

With those two things in mind, you can construct a portobello mushroom burger that has texture and is filing! Here are the toppings that we chose — but of course, you can get creative and use whatever you’d like:

  • Lots of cheese! To keep it filling, we like to add lots of cheese (two slices). Substitute your favorite vegan cheese for a plant-based sandwich.
  • Crunchy veggies: Lettuce and red onion help to add texture and crunch
  • Tomato: Because it’s just good.
  • Sauces: It’s also important to add some great sauces to amp the flavor. We like adding Basil Pesto because it’s garlicky (optional), and then of course our Special Burger Sauce that’s super tangy, creamy and savory all at once.

Top with special sauce

This Special Burger Sauce we created just for these portobello mushroom burgers! Veggie burgers in particular need good sauces, because they can be dry or bland without them. This burger sauce is like all your favorite burger condiments in one, and tastes a little like a Big Mac sauce. Here’s what’s in it:

  • Organic ketchup
  • Mayonnaise
  • Mustard (either yellow or Dijon)
  • Pickle juice
  • Hot sauce

Description

Here’s how to make a portobello mushroom burger that everyone loves: grilled or roasted! Savory and meaty, it’s irresistible with cheese and special sauce.


Ingredients

  • 4 portobello mushrooms
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh ground black pepper
  • 8 slices provolone or sharp cheddar cheese (or substitute vegan cheese)
  • For serving: Buns, lettuce, tomato, red onion, Basil Pesto (optional), Special Burger Sauce

Instructions

  1. Preheat a grill to medium-high heat (375 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit) or preheat an oven to 450 degrees*.
  2. Clean the portobello mushrooms and remove the stems. Place them on a baking sheet gill side up. Drizzle the tops the olive oil and use your hands to rub on the bottoms. Then place them back on the sheet gill side up and sprinkle with garlic powder, smoked paprika, kosher salt and several grinds of black pepper. Rub them until evenly coated.
  3. For the grilled method: Place the mushrooms directly on the grates gill side up, and grill 10 to 14 minutes until tender and juicy. Liquid will pool in the cap. Flip the mushrooms (this drains the liquid into the grates). Then top with the add cheese slices and cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until melted. Tip: Step up your burger and grill the burger buns for about 1 minute on one side until lightly toasted!
  4. For the roasted method: Place the baking sheet in the oven and roast for 15 minutes until tender. Drain of any excess liquid, then top with cheese and roast another 1 minute until the cheese melts.
  5. Serve: Place the mushrooms on buns. Top with lettuce, tomato, red onion, basil pesto (optional), and Special Burger Sauce.

Notes

*If you want to infuse a little smoky flavor to the roasted version, add a few shakes of liquid smoke to each mushroom (it’s potent, so don’t overdo it).
