2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Quick-pickle the apple

  • Core and thinly slice the apple.
In a small sauce pot, bring the apple cider vinegar and 2 tablespoons [¼ cup] water to a boil. Remove from the heat, add the apple, and season with salt. Cover and let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal.


Prep and cook the portobello mushrooms and broccoli

  • Wipe the tops of the portobello mushrooms with a damp paper towel to remove any dirt. Remove the stems, and using a spoon, gently scrape the black gills from the undersides of the caps.
  • Brush the mushrooms all over with oil and season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Cut the broccoli lengthwise into quarters to form spears; trim any coarse stems.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, add the mushrooms, cap sides down, to one side of the pan and add the broccoli to the other side of the pan. Cook, turning the mushrooms once and stirring the broccoli occasionally, until the vegetables are browned and tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate and season to taste with salt and pepper. Wipe out the pan.
While the mushrooms and broccoli cook, prepare the greens.


Dress the greens

In a medium bowl, toss together the mixed greens and 1 teaspoon [2 tsp] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Toast the buns

In the same pan used for the mushrooms, warm 1½ teaspoons [1 TBL] oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Working in batches if needed, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes. Alternatively, toast them in a toaster oven.


Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on individual plates. Top each with a portobello mushroom, pickled apple, 1 tablespoon tahini goddess dressing, and as much mixed greens as you like. Serve the broccoli, remaining dressing, and any remaining greens on the side.
