• 250g large flat portabella mushrooms
  • 60ml balsamic vinegar
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 small wholemeal burger buns
  • 1 tomato, thickly sliced, to serve
  • 1 red onion, peeled and sliced into rings, to serve
  • Lettuce leaves, to serve


  1. 1 Place the portabellas into a large bowl and drizzle with balsamic vinaigrette, letting the mushrooms marinate for 30 minutes.
  2. 2 Remove the mushrooms from the bowl and season both sides. Heat a grill pan over a medium heat and warm some oil in the base.
  3. 3 Place the portabella's gill side down on the pan and cook for 4 minutes (or pop the mushrooms on the barbecue grill).
  4. 4 Turn and continue to grill the mushrooms are almost cooked through, about 4 minutes more.
  5. 5 Remove the mushrooms from the pan and let them drain on a paper towel (gill side down).
  6. 6 Cut each mushroom into quarters and place into the burger buns with the slices of onion, tomato and the lettuce leaves.
  7. 7 Cook's tip: If serving at a party as sliders (mini burgers), try securing all the fillings in place with cocktail sticks, then plates can be passed around without fear.
