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

Wash produce before use


Prep and cook the portobello mushrooms

  • 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.
  • Season the mushrooms generously with salt and pepper.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 2 tablespoons [3 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the mushrooms, stemmed sides down, and cook, turning once, until browned and just starting to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
While the mushrooms cook, prepare the salad.


Make the tomato-almond salad

  • Cut the tomatoes into quarters.
  • Coarsely chop the almonds.
  • Trim the root end from the romaine; remove 2 [4] of the largest outer leaves to garnish the burgers; coarsely chop the remaining leaves to serve on the side.
In a medium bowl, stir together the tomatoes, almonds, barberries, and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil; season to taste with salt and pepper.


Toast the buns

In the same pan used for the portobellos, working in batches if needed, place the buns, cut sides down, and cook over medium-high heat until lightly toasted, 1 to 2 minutes.


Assemble the burgers

Place the bun bottoms, cut sides up, on a work surface and slather with as much Caesar dressing as you like (set aside any remaining dressing for serving). Top each with a portobello mushroom, stemmed side up, spoon on as much tomato-almond salad as you like, and garnish with the whole romaine leaves. Close with the bun tops.


Transfer the portobello burgers to individual plates. Serve the chopped romaine and any remaining tomato-almond salad and dressing on the side.
