Avocado and Walnut Portobello Mushrooms

When it comes to mushrooms, either you love them or hate them.

I have always loved throwing some portobello's on the grill in times past, but lately, I have been trying some pretty creative things with them, and as always, with the objective of creating something delicious, using ultra-healthy quality ingredients. The best of both worlds.

I'm gonna be posting all my portobello concoctions as I try them, but my first, this avocado and walnut over a large portobello is "the bomb".

Avocado and Walnut Portobello Mushroom (optional cheese)

2 large Portobello Mushrooms
2 leeks, sliced
1 clove garlic, pressed
grass fed butter
optional grass fed cheese

2 avocados, peeled and chopped, use blender/food processer for a smoother avocado spread

1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/4 teaspoon Pink Himalayan Salt
3 tablespoons chopped walnuts
2 tablespoons Organic olive oil
spice of choice to garnish (I perfer fennel cuz' for me it eliminates the 'bloating' that comes with cheese, if you know what I'm trying to say)

Remove stems from the mushroom.

Melt grass fed butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add garlic and leeks and saute. Remove from heat, and cool.

Stir together avocado, finely chopped rosemary and lime juice in a bowl. Add garlic/leek mixture.

If using cheese, press cheese into mushroom caps; top evenly with avocado mixture. Sprinkle with walnuts, and drizzle with olive oil. Place on rack in a broiler pan.

Place on covered grill or bake at 400F for 5 minutes; cover cooking container with lid or loosely with aluminum foil, and bake 5 more minutes. Serve immediately. Garnish with favorite spice. ~dw~

[…] Avocado and Walnut Portobello Mushrooms from Gaia Health Blog. Wow! This is a great idea! […]


How do you get grass fed butter or grass fed cheese never heard of that before.


You have to find a dairy product produced from cows that were fed only grass. There is a website called “Eatwild” where you can find places near you that have grass fed products http://www.eatwild.com/index.html. Whole Foods carries a lot a grass fed meat poultry, cheese and so forth, it is best to go in and ask what products are grass fed.


Hi Doug,

This looked so good, I did a take on it last night. Broiled the shroom after liberally brushing on the marinade, added grated grass-fed cheddar cheese and let that melt. Schmeared (a technical term) on the avocado. Left off the walnuts and subbed a grass-fed burger/bison patty, more avocado and the 2nd shroom on top. The portabellos are 100 times better than buns. Tres yummy! I will try the original version with walnuts soon. This is an idea to run with. The mushroom can be substituted for buns, tortillas, bread, whatever. Then fill them with something scrumptious. If you have any more brainstorms, keep us posted.



Hi Bobbi,

Anybody order a Loveburger? Well done……    🙂

You see the “LoveBurger” is the divine manifestation of one’s own unique expression on the earth plane, as personified and presented to the physical real as the junction and cosmic connection between culinary and spiritual pursuits, thus eliciting the true command of divinity for unlimited feeding of the body and the spirit.

As man and woman have many forms of love and religious expression, henceforth everyone’s “LoveBurger” will be a different and dynamic experience………………

just some “Food for Thought” 🙂
