Mushroom & Brie Burgers

These juicy mushroom burgers are so easy to prepare for a bbq and are great whether you’re a vegetarian or not! But be warned, everyone will want to try one, so make sure you bargain on  a few extra servings, they’re delicious cold too.

Ingredients Per Burger (allow at least 2 per person for a vegetarian BBQ)

1 large portabello mushroom

1/2 tsp of garlic salt

1/2 tsp of fresh parsley

1/2 tsp of butter

2-3 generous slices of brie

1 burger bun

Red onion slices

Mixed leaf salad

Relish (optional)


1. Place the mushroom stalk side down on a white hot BBQ for about 3-5 minutes

2. Turn over the mushroom (whilst on the BBQ or if easier remove and replace with the topping) smear a small knob of butter in the inside of the cup; add a sprinkle of garlic salt and torn pieces of fresh flat leaf parsley. Then finish with slices of brie and cook for another 5 minutes until the brie is melted and oozing over the sides.

3. Meanwhile, cut your burger bun in half, adding slices of red onion, salad and relish if desired and slide in your mushroom burger when it’s ready! Be careful eating the first mouthful though, as the juices underneath the cheese can get really hot. Enjoy!

Healthy Greek Salad

To make a healthy version of a classic greek salad recipe, first dice red onion, then slice and quarter cucumber and halve cherry tomatoes . Top wth crumbled feta cheese, then mix equal parts of fresh torn mint and flat leaf parsley, olive oil, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar and pour over the salad. Finally finish with a twist or two of freshly milled black pepper and sea salt.

To make a more filling version of this salad, try adding a couple of table spoons of puy lentils or butterbeans.
