Yield: 2 servings

Preparation time: 15 minutes

Cooking time: 15 minutes


  • 2 portobello mushrooms
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
  • ¼ tsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp fine ground sea salt
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup no salt added vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1 ½ tbsp light mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp sriracha-style hot sauce
  • ½ tsp fresh lime juice
  • ¼ tsp lime zest
  • 2 100% whole wheat burger buns
  • 1 cup mixed leaf lettuce


  1. Clean the mushrooms with a damp dishtowel. Remove the stems and scrape out the gills. In a small bowl, stir together the olive oil, cilantro, garlic powder, sea salt, and black pepper. Preheat a deep non-stick skillet with a lid over medium-high heat.
  2. Rub half of the olive oil and herb mix over each of the mushrooms. Place in the skillet top-side down and cook for 4 minutes. Flip the mushrooms and cook 3 more minutes. Reduce the heat to medium.
  3. Pour the broth into the skillet and cover immediately. Cook for 6 to 8 more minutes, flipping the mushrooms once halfway through. Turn off the heat. The mushrooms will be dark, slightly shrunken, and tender when pierced with a fork.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, hot sauce, lime juice, and lime zest.
  5. To assemble the burgers, spread half of the sauce over each bottom bun. Top with a mushroom and ½ cup of lettuce. Cover with the top half of the bun and serve.
