Vegan Portobello Mushroom Sandwich with Tangy Mango Salsa

May 4, 2015
If you're a lover of mushrooms then you'll absolutely love this vegan portobello mushroom sandwich recipe! There are many ways to make a delicious vegan sandwich or burger. Quite often, I would use a vegan veggie patty--but do be careful! Some brands contain eggs or milk in them so make sure you read the list of ingredients. This time, I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and try something new :) I've recently been making all my sandwiches and burgers with the portobello mushroom patty and it is soooo delicious! I was skeptical at first because I thought it wouldn't fill me up as a veggie patty would, but it definitely does. Plus, there's only about 26 calories in a portobello mushroom cap compared to a veggie patty, which ranges from about 120 to 200 calories! You will also be getting that savory, hearty taste from whole unprocessed ingredients. Once you try out the mushroom patty, you'll never go back. ;)

Directions

1. Spray coconut oil or olive oil in a large pan over low medium heat. While the pan is heating up, remove the stems from the portobello mushrooms and rinse off with water. Then, slice the onion into thin rings and mince the garlic. Place the sliced onion and minced garlic into the pan and cover for about 15 minutes; stir every 5 minutes.
2. Once the onions are cooked through, add the soy sauce and maple syrup then cover over low heat. After about 2 minutes, put the onion mixture in a bowl and place the portobellos on the same pan on its back. Then add on the onion mixture on top of each mushroom cap, cover with a lid and cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat.
3. Turn over the mushrooms along with the onions, cover and cook for about 7 to 10 more minutes over low-medium heat.
4. Now it’s time to make the salsa: All you have to do is cut up the tomato, bell pepper, onion, jalapeño, mango and cilantro, combine, and mix in the fresh lime juice. Simple, easy, and refreshing to make!
5. Once the portobellos are cooked through, you’re ready to eat!
6. Spread about 1 tbsp of hummus on each sandwich,put the portobello mushroom along with the onion mixture, place a big spoonful (or more) of the mango salsa, and then some slices of avocado to top it all off. I like to eat it with a fork and knife because it can get quite messy!
7. I hope you enjoy!!
*For the bread, I like to toast the slices real quickly or grill some whole wheat buns so the juices from the mushroom won’t make the bottom soggy. Or lettuce wrap for protein-style!
*There will be liquid that cooked out of the mushrooms so you can either slather that sauce on your sandwich or ignore it 🙂
* I always eat salads with my sandwiches and I’ve recently fallen in love with this vegan salad dressing I found at Whole Foods Market the other day and it’s sooo delicious! It’s called Miso Ginger by Follow Your Heart, check it out 😉
