You don’t have to run to a restaurant for this vegan whopper. You also don’t have to eat an empty white flour bun.



  • 2 Portobello mushroom caps per person
  • 1 Beyond Meat Beyond Burger per person (or another veggie burger, but I can’t promise the same taste results!)
  • Sliced vine ripe tomatoes
  • Vegan sliced cheese (I like Follow Your Heart Smoked Gouda)
  • Relish or sliced bread and butter pickles (please no food coloring!)
  • Vegan Mayo (I like Just Mayo)
  • Ketchup
  • Yellow Mustard


  1. Peel the skin off of your mushroom caps and remove the stems; then rinse them. Place mushroom caps in a microwave safe bowl with a small amount of water. Microwave for 2-4 minutes until they are smaller, darker and softer. Remove from microwave. Let cool and drain water.
  2. Cook Beyond Meat Beyond Burger according to directions. Place on top of one mushroom cap (gills side up) and add toppings: sliced tomatoes, vegan cheese and mayo, relish, mustard, and ketchup. Top with other mushroom cap (gills side in).
  3. Enjoy the taste of a whopper without the meat or white bread!
