Easy #HealthyEats :: Teriyaki Portobello Mushroom Burger

Teriyaki burger is a seasonal McDonalds gimmickry here in Hawaii. According to my teriyaki-burger obsessed hub, this calorie-laden bad boy is only sold during summer months. But since I don’t eat meat anymore (recently a lacto-vegetarian convert here mama), I try my very best to be resourceful when it comes to meal preparation. I like portobello mushrooms so I thought of satisfying my own teriyaki craving sans le beef. Ready for my easy #HealthyEats recipe ? come join me!

Ingredients: portobello mushrooms, tomatoes, lettuce (or spinach), teriyaki sauce, whole wheat burger bun, cheese (optional)


1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees

2. Wash and pat dry portobello mushroom with a paper towel

3. Remove the stem

4. In a baking pan, pour 1/3 cup teriyaki sauce over portobello mushrooms (for this recipe, I used gluten-free Kelis Hawaiian Teriyaki Baste and Glaze)

5. Cover with aluminum foil

6. Bake for 45 minutes or until mushrooms are tender

7. Optional: add cheese slice on top, return portobello mushrooms to oven, broil for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted 

8. Toast burger bun

9. Stuff with tomatoes and lettuce/spinach as you please

Filling, healthy, heavenly. What more can I say? I’m in Cloud Nom!

    I love grilled portabellas but never thought to put them on a bun.

    I love portabella mushrooms, but the one burger I had (once upon a time at a zoo) was not great – however they served it cold which I didn't care for. I think served this way it would be amazing – definitely worth giving it another shot!

    I am picky on mushrooms but just looking at that picture never would have guessed it's contents.

    I just cooked one of these the other day but I cooked my mushroom in a pan. I will have to try it in the oven next time.
