Portobello Burgers and Fries

If you’re craving the flavor of a burger and fries, but want something whole foods plant based then this might do the trick! Portobellos are a great source of protein, vitamin d, and have a meaty texture that make a great burger replacement. They also soak up any flavor you add to them so it’s versatile. You can marinate the portobellos, grill or bake them, and serve them on a bun with all of your favorite toppings. I made fries on the side and they were so crispy and delicious without any oil! It was such a tasty meal and it looks guilt inducing without having to feel any guilt!
