Serves 1-2. Cooking Time: 45 minutes.


  • 2 Portobello mushrooms
  • 1-2 tsp olive oil
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • Pinch of mixed herbs
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds
  • Rocket (arugula) or baby spinach
  • Sliced tomato
  • 1/4 pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tbsp honey


  • 1 avocado
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • Pinch of paprika
  • Pinch of sea salt

What to do

  1. Preheat oven to 355ºF„‰ (180ºC„ƒ)
  2. Slice pumpkin to roughly the same size as the portobello buns as these will be the 'patty'. Spread evenly on lined baking tray, coat with coconut oil & honey and roast for 30-40 minutes until cooked and golden brown.
  3. Drizzle portobello mushrooms with olive oil, a pinch of salt and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Place on lined tray and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes.
  4. While the pumpkin and mushrooms roast, get your guacamole ready by combining avocado, lime, garlic, paprika & sea salt in a bowl. Mix until combined well.
  5. Assemble your burgers by placing one mushroom on the plate, top with roasted pumpkin, guacamole, sliced tomato, leafy greens and top with the other mushrooms.
