Smoked Maple Portobello Burgers

Smoked Maple Portobello Burgers take a regular mushroom burger up a notch! These burgers are a perfect plant-based summer BBQ dish.

Smoked Maple Portobello Burgers

Last week I shared a carrot dog recipe, so it's only fitting that this week we make mushroom burgers! These Smoked Maple Portobello Burgers will be a hit at your next summer cookout. Mushrooms are so tasty, with a great umami flavor. When you add a bit of smoky maple flavor you get a perfect balance of sweet and savory.

Mushrooms are a great meat alternative. They are tough, so you get a good bite. And they are so simple! No crazy ingredient lists like you might find in store-bought vegan burger patties. Throw on your favorite condiments and you've got yourself a tasty, healthy burger!!

Ingredients

These burgers have just two, yes two, ingredients!

Portobello Mushrooms: Portobello mushrooms make the most perfect burgers because they are rather large, just the right size for a burger bun. They also have a more 'meaty' texture; they're tougher than other mushrooms, so you really get a good bite.

Smoked Maple Date Syrup: This date syrup is the KEY to the incredible flavor of these burgers. Smoked Maple Date Syrup is sweet and smoky and so flavorful. I love Date Lady's Smoked Maple Date Syrup, but you could always mix up some date syrup and liquid smoke.

thank you for the oil free recipe. I'm getting introduced to wild Bolete mushrooms here in Colorado, and everyone sautes Bolete's in butter or olive oil. I'm on a veggie, oil free regimen for heart health reasons. and your recipe suggestion may fill the bill. I can't wait to give it a try.
