there's a fungus among us

Dinner is something that I struggle with.  I find it hard to come up with amazing meals for one.  Well, the February issue of Clean Eating did not leave me hanging!  There are lots of amazing healthy choices in this one issue.  Today's choice, Grilled Portobello & Onion Burgers.

4 large portobello mushroom caps, wiped clean
4 slices red onion each round about 1/4 inch
1 1/2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 whole wheat hamburger buns (I used sandwich thins)
2 oz blue cheese crumbles (I forgot them for the photo)
4 romaine lettuce leaves (this did not sound good so I left it out)

Heat grill pan on med-high. Lightly brush the mushrooms and onions with oil. (I used my olive oil sprayer and sprayed them) Grill mushrooms and onions for about 4 to 5 minutes per side until mushrooms are tender.  Mushrooms will begin to release their juices when they are tender.  Set aside on a plate and grill buns for 1 to 2 minutes per side.
2 tbsp nonfat plain Greek style yogurt
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp dejon mustard
2 cloves garlic minced
2 tsp dired basil
1/8 teaspoon sea salt
Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl. Spread evenly on each half of bun. Top with cheese and lettuce (if you use it) 

Get your YUM on! 

note: this is super easy and impressive for guests! Or at least I think so.  It tastes amazing!
