Smoky mushroom burgers with roasted garlic mayo Recipe
Healthy burger recipe for 4 people, takes only 50 mins; recipe has flat mushroom, olive oil, red pepper, thyme, breadcrumb, tomato paste, smoked paprika, red onion, golden caster sugar, sherry vinegar, garlic clove, mayonnaise, crusty bread, salad leaf and manchego.
- Red Pepper - 2 roasted red peppers (from a jar), finely chopped
- Garlic Clove - 3 garlic cloves, unpeeled
- Olive Oil - 1 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for frying
- Smoked Paprika - 2 tsp smoked paprika
- Red Onion - 3 red onions, thinly sliced
- Mayonnaise - 50g good-quality mayonnaise
- Thyme - 1/2 small pack thyme, leaves picked and chopped
- Sherry Vinegar - 1 tbsp sherry vinegar
- Breadcrumb - 50g fresh breadcrumb
- Golden Caster Sugar - 1 tbsp golden caster sugar
- Crusty Bread - 4 crusty bread rolls (we used ciabatta)
- Salad Leaf - salad leaves
- Tomato Paste - 1 tbsp sundried tomato paste
- Flat Mushroom - 4 large flat mushrooms
- Manchego - 25g cheddar or manchego, grated
- Heat up the barbecue. To make the garlic mayo, wrap the garlic cloves in a foil parcel, position on a hot spot of the barbecue and cook for 20 mins until really soft. Alternatively, bake in a hot oven for 20-30 mins. Leave to cool, then squeeze the cloves out of their skins and mash with a fork. Mix the garlic puree with the mayonnaise, then chill until ready to serve.
- Remove the stalks from the middle of the mushrooms and finely chop them. Heat a drizzle of oil in a pan (on the barbecue or hob), add the stalks and fry for a few mins until golden and soft. Add the peppers, thyme, breadcrumbs, tomato paste, paprika and some seasoning. Cook for 5 mins more, then set aside to cool a little. Rub the mushroom caps with a little oil, season, then top each one with 1/4 of the mixture. Can be chilled for up to 1 day.
- Meanwhile, heat a little oil in another frying pan (on the barbecue or hob), and add the onions. Cook for 15 mins until soft and golden, then add the sugar, vinegar and some seasoning. Cook for 5 mins more until caramelised and sticky. Can be chilled for up to 2 days.
- Put the mushrooms on the barbecue (stuffed side up), close the lid or cover with foil, and cook for 20 mins until soft and cooked through. Be sure to keep an eye on the heat and move to the upper shelf if the bottoms of the mushrooms start to burn. Split the rolls and heat these on the barbecue, too. Spread each roll with some garlic mayo, top with salad leaves, a filled mushroom, some sticky onions and a grating of cheese.
