Clean Eating Lemon Portobello Mushroom Burgers

Some burgers are just meant to be a summer time favorite, and these are one of them.

Hot off the grill, these puppies are a perfectly light dinner that will fill you up without sitting in your tummy like a ton of bricks.  I love these burgers.

They are quick and easy to prepare and have a nice, summery, lemon flavor to them that is perfect for a hot summer evening barbecue.

Even though my husband has not continued with being vegan, these are definitely a favorite of his. I think I could feed these to him every night for dinner and he would be a happy camper.

Mini Chef, on the other hand, prefers turkey burgers. But I’m okay with that. The nice thing about grilling is that you can put a wide variety of things on the grill at the same time. Everyone gets what they want. Everyone is happy.

P.S. – The burger buns pictured above are by Alvarado Street Bakery. Clean and oh so yummy! (And no, they didn’t pay me to say that. They are the only clean bun I can find. Good thing they are tasty!)

  • Barbecue Grill


  • 4 large portobello mushrooms (large enough to cover your bun entirely)
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. lemon zest (zest of 1 lemon)


  • Place all ingredients in a disposable plastic bag and gently move everything around in the bag so the seasoning gets evenly distributed over the mushrooms. Don't break your mushrooms!
  • Place on the bbq and cook until the mushrooms are very soft and easily sliced.
  • Assemble your burger to your liking. That's it!

    My husband can’t wait to try this one. He wants to know what additives you have put in your burger before grilling to go along with this one

    Gotta love anything with 5 gm’s of salt! LOL I’m on my Salt Free Cleanse! I can do this on my stove top grill! thanks!! I’m wondering what other flavors I can make with it, I’m not sure if i’m a huge fan of lemon and mushrooms.

  6. can you reheat these im big on leftovers for work – im thinking you cant since it might get soggy

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Stacy – The mushrooms, yes. But I would build the burger itself at the last possible moment. Maybe even just take the parts to work and assemble them there.

  7. Delicious! Topped with red onions and cheese broiled on the bbq… now to convince my picky boyfriend to give it a try.

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Nicole – He doesn’t know what he’s missing!

  8. Can I just say that these were so delicious! They were better than a restaurant burger. My husband said that this is on his top 5 for best meals I have every made….and this one was clean! Thank you so much for this recipe. I will definitely be making this again.

      Ashlet – That’s awesome!!! So glad you both enjoyed it! 🙂

  9. Opps…just realized I typed Ashlet instead of Ashley. My bad!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ashley – Haha! No worries. I thought about it, but wasn’t sure, so just typed it the way you did. LOL

  10. so i am all for eating clean, but you are supposed to have 1200 calories a day minimum, how does one get that when a “burger” is only 84 cal? like the extra add ons wouldn’t be that many cal

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Shel – There are many ways to get extra calories. Keep in mind that that is just for the mushroom. You still have to add a bug, veggies and even some sides if you like. The bun alone can be 100-200 calories depending on what you buy. Pair it with some home baked fries and clean ketchup or even a salad with dressing and it adds up pretty quickly.
