Double Decker Portobello Burgers

Ingredients

  1. ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  3. 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  4. 6 cloves garlic, minced
  5. Pinch of sea salt
  6. 8 large portobello mushrooms, gills scraped out with a spoon
  7. ½ sweet onion, cut crosswise into 4 thick slices
  8. 1 large firm tomato, cut crosswise into 4 thick slices
  9. 4 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, cut into 8 slices
  10. 4 mini whole grain ciabiatta buns (or other whole grain bun), halved
  11. 1/4 cup Faux Aioli

Instructions

Whisk together first 5 ingredients. Place portobellos in a shallow dish, and rub with marinade. Pour any extra over the top and let sit for 30 minutes.

Preheat grill to medium-high. Brush onion and tomato with oil. Grill onion and mushrooms for 3-5 minutes per side, until tender and slightly bronzed. Grill tomato for 3 minutes on one side.

Turn mushrooms gill-side up and lay the mozzarella on top. Grill for another 3-4 minutes, until cheese is melted.

Toast the buns on the grill for 1 minute and spread both top and bottom with the Faux Aioli. Top each bun with two mushrooms, 1 onion slice and a tomato.
