Open Faced Turkey Portobello Mushroom Burger

Print

The one thing I miss is being able to order a burger with fries! So I decided to create a meal of my own that was gluten-free, paleo and healthy! I’ve been trying to find something to substitute a bun on my burger for a while and when I saw the portobello mushroom in the store I got super excited. It’s a perfect fit!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Talk about loading up on veggies! This meal, rich in calcium and iron, almost covers all of your vegetable servings in one sitting! Mushrooms are a great source of B vitamins, and the minerals zinc, copper and manganese, while the sweet potatoes are filling, high in fiber and a great source of Vitamin A and potassium. For those on gluten-free diets, this is a great way to still enjoy summertime grilling without sacrificing fun and flavor!

Open Faced Turkey Portobello Mushroom Burger

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 50 mins
  • Servings: 1

Ingredients

1 organic turkey burger (1/4 pound patty of ground turkey meat)
2 portobello mushrooms
2 tomato slices
2 romaine lettuce leaves
1/8 avocado
1 tablespoon basil
1/4 cup sweet potato
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
coconut oil (or olive oil)

Instructions

1. Before I made my burger, I made my sweet potato french fries! I took a big sweet potato and cut it up into little strips. In a bowl, I tossed the potato strips with salt, pepper and coconut oil and then spread them on a baking sheet. I put them in the oven (preheated to 475) and cooked for about 40 minutes.
2. After my french fries were done, I put my turkey burger in a pan and cooked in all the way through. While my turkey burger was in the pan, I sliced a few pieces of tomato and avocado and washed my desired amount of basil and lettuce and my portobello mushroom.
3. OPTIONAL: Before you put your burger all together, throw your mushroom in a pan or on the grill with a little bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
4. Once everything is done, grab a plate and put down your portobello mushroom and then lettuce, turkey burger, tomato, avocado, and basil. Cover the rest of your plate in sweet potato french fries and enjoy!
