Portabello and (Peach) Plum Burger

So, today I was a little bored at work. I don’t have a TON to do, so I spent time on a bunch of food blogs. I really wanted to jump in and make a few recipes from Green Kitchen Stories, since I’ve totally fallen it love with it!

So here’s the first of three that I bought ingredients for when Bill and I went to the store today. 


Side Story about the Store: Where do you get all your fancy ingredients for recipes!? I have to drive to Strack and Van Till (which is not a very fancy grocery store, and anything fancy is really expensive) and my local cheap option is really limited in scope!

  • 6 Portobello mushrooms
  • 6 peaches
  • 6 sweet potatoes
  • 6 burger buns of your choice
  • 100 g fresh pea sprouts
  • 5 small roman tomatoes, sliced
  • 5 small spring onions, sliced
  • fresh thyme
  • olive oil
  • salt & pepper

Marinade Ingredients

  • 4 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 lemon
  • salt & pepper

Guacamole Ingredients

  • 4 avocados
  • 5 small Roma tomatoes
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1/4 cup parsley
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp olive oil

Everything is pretty self explanatory, with a few exceptions. You grill (or use a grill pan for) the mushrooms and peach/plums. Also, they have a genius way of rubbing the marinade on the peaches/plums and mushrooms. Use a stalk of rosemary as a brush! The rosemary flavor ends up coming out really strongly. Especially in the fruit. 

Also, though the recipe calls for peaches, there weren’t any at the store. We used yellow plums and they were just as good! A little more bitter, but very yummy.

I was really excited to make this recipe because I could also use my bread (the one below) as the burger buns! It worked perfectly. 

They were so good! We also made sweet potato fries with fresh thyme. They’re also excellent, and super easy (I’m sure you’ve made these before.) Bill didn’t think he would like them (since he’s not a huge sweet potato fan—too sweet) but we both ended up gobbling them up!

I’m really excited to try more recipes later this week! 🙂
