Vegan Portobello Burgers

I’ve recently completed my 21 days vegan challenge and I feel amazing! Not because I finished the challenge and am dying to eat meat again, but the opposite has happened to me! I no longer crave for meat, dairy, or any animal products. Ever since I’ve gone vegan, I noticed my fatigue has disappeared and my energy level has rised by A LOT! I know. You’re all probably wondering WHY? And HOW? And WHAT WILL I EAT NOW? Don’t worry, I will answer all of these questions and more in another post, I promise! I don’t want to bore you with that stuff here. Because we are here today to talk about these MASSIVE DELICIOUS VEGAN PORTOBELLO BURGERS!!!


These are honestly the best burgers I’ve ever had! Make this for a carnivore and they’ll ask you, “What is that?! Give me more!” Make it for a vegan/vegetarian and they will ask, “Is this seriously vegan? Why is it so delicious?!” I can’t take all the credit though. I found a chunky portabella veggie burger recipe on The Kitchen Whisperer and decided to add my own twist to it and turn it into a vegan burger instead of a veggie burger.


I literally ate this burger for lunch everyday for a week and then when I finished them I made a new batch right away because it’s that good! This burger would be the centre of attention when you bring them to barbeques. I mean, have you tried a store bought packaged vegan burger? They taste so dry! This vegan portobello burger would save the day! This burger tastes good on its own, in a bun or wrapped inside some lettuce! I’m not much of a bread person, so I personally prefer to wrap mine in lettuce. Either way, whichever way you choose, you know it’ll taste good.


Of course, I like to have my burger with cornichons (pickles) on the side! I’m super excited that Maille Canada has 4 varieties of cornichons! Original, Mild and Sweet, Carmamelized Onion, and Extra Hot Cayenne Chili Pepper. If you know me, you’ll know that my favourite has got to be the Hot Cayenne Chili flavour!
