Blended Portobello Hamburger

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 5 hamburgers


  • 6 ounces or 2 large Portobello mushrooms*
  • 1 tbsp + 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound lean ground beef, grass-fed
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt

Toppings (not included in nutrient analysis):

  • 5 whole wheat or gluten-free buns
  • 5 tomato slices
  • 5 romaine or butter lettuce slices


  • food processor
  • grill


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat. Grease grill with 1 tablespoon olive oil using a paper towel or pastry brush.

  2. Place the mushrooms on a cutting board, and carefully remove mushroom stems with a paring knife. Scrape out the inside portion, and place the mushrooms into a food processor and pulse until pureed. Place the pureed mushrooms onto a paper towel to remove any excess moisture, and set aside.

  3. In a medium size cooking skillet over medium-high heat, add 2 teaspoons olive oil, onions, and garlic. Sauté until soft.

  4. Add mushrooms and sauté for 5 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from heat and place into a medium size mixing bowl to cool, about 5 minutes.

  5. Mix in ground beef, Dijon mustard, and salt to the mushroom mixture, and combine with a spatula.

  6. Divide evenly into 5 lightly packed balls. Using clean hands, gently flatten the balls into patties approximately ¾ inch thick and 4 inches in diameter.

  7. Place burgers on a preheated grill and cook burgers over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes on each side, or until the internal temperature is 160°f or desired doneness. Serve with desired toppings.

Recipe Notes

*Sautéing mushrooms before adding them to the ground meat enhances the flavor of the mushrooms, however, if you are short on time, it is not a necessary step.
