Have some huge looking mushrooms in your garden or in your kitchen?
Couple of days before they get spoilt, get slimy, tilt or turn darkened, why not try making some grilled mushroom burger. Try being vegetarian this time around by getting some fresh vegetables along with olive oil to give yourself some refreshing and healthy treat.
Grill the mushrooms with some drizzle of olive oil, lemon juice, salt and black peppercorn for a meal that everyone in the house will enjoy every bit of.
You might think that this recipe is tedious as per cutting and chopping up all the vegetables but I tell you wh--aa--tt, this is the easiest and simplest recipes you can ever think of. The vegetables can be chopped within few minutes, lets say 5 mins max while the mushrooms cook within few minutes as well, so tell me why you wouldn't want to give this recipe a go????
