A REAL Vegetable Burger

Makes: 1 burger

Description: Sometimes we just want a burger... This is a very filling way to get all of your vegetables into your burger, kick out the carbs, and still have a healthy meal. Feel free to use a boca/vegetarian burger if you want to keep it all vegan! Or--stay with your red meat, as used in this recipe! You're definitely going to need to cut this big burger in half (or quarters)...it gets messy!

1 patty  Burger meat (or boca/vegan/vegetarian burger patty)
2  Portobello Mushroom Caps
1/2 c  Alfalfa Sprouts
2 tbsp  ketchup
1/2  Fresh tomato
1 Spray  PAM

Instructions: Prepare a pan with tinfoil and PAM. Put your 2 portobello mushrooms on the pan and put it into the oven on Broil. Cook each side on broil for 10 minutes. While this is happening: Cook burger patty as directed. Wash all of your vegetables. Slice the tomato. Take out the portobello mushrooms & put them on a plate as if they were buns. Layer on the tomato, alfalfa sprouts, burger patty, ketchup, and then the other mushroom cap. TADA. You have a healthy, vegetable burger! Delicious...very filling...good luck if you can eat the whole thing!
