Mushroom Burgers {meatless}

These Mushroom Burgers are great for a meatless Monday - and very tasty by the way {this is said by one of the biggest carnivores around ! } 

Roy and the kids even enjoyed this ... enough said.

I wanted the really large brown mushrooms, but, Murphy's Law ... we could only get medium large, however it turned out fine and delicious.

Mushroom Burgers

Olive Oil or Avocado Oil, to fry
1 Onion, sliced
1 Red Bell Pepper, diced
6 Large Brown Mushrooms, wiped clean
1 Red Chilli, seeds removed and chopped finely
4 TB Plain Yoghurt
1 - 2 Avocados, peeled and sliced
6 Buns, toasted {I used Portuguese Hamburger Buns}
Rocket(Arugula), Basil or other leafy herbs, to serve

1.) Saute the Onion and Red Bell Pepper in a little Oil until soft and light brown.
2.) Meanwhile, brush the Brown Mushrooms with some Oil and fry in a separate pan, 2 - 3 minutes per side, until soft - drain on paper towel {they do get juicy and will make the bread soggy}.
3.) Mix the Red Chilli with the plain Yoghurt in a small bowl.

To assemble : - Spread some of the Chilli/Yoghurt mixture on the bottom side of the                             toasted bun.
                      - Place a few slices of Avocado on top of the Yoghurt mixture
                      - Now add a Brown Mushroom to each burger
                      - Add some Onion/Red Bell Pepper and top with a leafy herb

Serve immediately, with little cubed Fries and a Salad !
