  • Summary

    Portobello mushrooms are a nutritious and satisfying alternative to burgers made with beef or turkey. Here they are accompanied by a spread of pureed cannellini beans for added protein -- and flavor. To clean the mushroom caps, wipe them with a damp paper towel; do not rinse or soak, or they will remain soggy even after cooking. This recipe is featured in the "Power Foods" cookbook.

    Ingredients

    • 2 large garlic cloves, minced
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
    • 1 cup canned cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
    • 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
    • Freshly ground pepper
    • 8 large portobello mushroom caps (about 1 pound), cleaned
    • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
    • 2 large red onions (about 1 pound), sliced 1/4 inch thick
    • 4 whole-grain hamburger buns
    • 4 thin slices cheddar cheese (2 ounces)
    • 1/2 small bunch arugula (about 2 1/2 ounces), washed and dried
