Bye Bye Burger
( Broile portobello "burgers" with sweet peepers,red onions, and a spicy,chickpea spread)
1 cup canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed.
2 tbsp low - fat sour cream
2 tbsp minced onions
1 tbsp chopped,fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic,minced
2 tsp lemon or lime juice
1 tsp brown sugar
3/4 tsp ground coriander
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 tbsp each olive oil and balsamic or red wine vinger
1/2 tsp dreid basil
4 medium portobello mushrooms,wiped clean
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and cut into wide strips
1 medium red onion,sliced into thick rings
(do not seperate)
4 multi-grain buns
1 cup whole baby spinach leaves
To make the chickpea spread, combine all ingredients in a blender or food processor and whirl until smooth. ( You ought to like this Billy!) Refrigerate until ready to use.
In a small bowl, combine olive oil,vinger, and basil. Brush oil mixture over both sides of mushrooms,pepper strips, and onion rings. Arrange vegetables in a baking pan and place under broiler about 5 inches from the heat source. Broil for 3 minutes. Remove pan from oven,turn vegetables over,baste with any remaining oil mixture,and return to oven. Broil for 3 to 4 more minutes, unti the vegetables are tender.
To serve, line bottom of bun with spinach leaves. Place one whole mushroom over the top. Spread chickpea mixture over mushroom. Top with peppers, onions, and half of bun.
