Vegan Recipe - Grilled Portobello Mushroom Burger

My friend, JC, is a talented woman. She's a photographer and is soon to be featured at a show in Brooklyn (if you're in the area on July 18th, you can attend the EVENT which, in addition to fine art, will include food, drink, and music). She's also a talented artisan, dancer, and model. Did I say that she's a dedicated "greenie"? Yep, she regularly participates in activities on Reduce Footprints and I happen to know, from our chats, that she works very hard to employ green living techniques in all areas of her life.

If all that weren't enough, JC also cooks. All of the dishes which she shares on her blog, Lady JC Muses, are healthy and many are vegan. Each one includes fresh, in-season ingredients. She epitomizes clean eating with dishes that please the eye as well as the taste buds.

JC has graciously allowed me to share one of her recipes with you. I love the ingredients she's chosen for this dish, and the fact that it comes together quickly. Check it out ... and then, check out JC's blog!
