I'm not a real tv sports girl, but I do love excuses to cook up some good food for game time. The recipe below is a hearty & satisfying vegetarian sandwich. I hope you like it!


Serves 2 (my kids are not yet fans of mushrooms), but easy to adjust for your needs

  • 2 Portabello mushroom caps
  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 1/4 cup Soy sauce
  • 2 cups fresh Baby kale
  • 1 clove minced Garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon Chopped Ginger
  • Olive oil
  • Sliced Swiss cheese
  • Hamburger buns
  • Trader joe's Whole seed Dijon mustard


  1. Marinate mushroom caps & sliced red peppers in 1/4 cup soy sauce in small roasting pan
  2. Preheat oven to 400°
  3. Cover mushrooms & peppers with tin foil, place in oven for 20-30 minutes, until soft
  4. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil to pan, heat to medium
  5. Add garlic & ginger, heat for 2-3 minutes
  6. Add 2 cups of fresh baby kale
  7. Sautée garlic, ginger & kale for 5-7 minutes
  8. Toast hamburger buns in oven
  9. Place mushrooms, pepper, kale & slice of Swiss cheese on hamburger bun
  10. Place in warm oven 3-5 minutes to melt cheese
  11. Spread top of roll with Dijon mustard
  12. Serve with your favorite side, since this was football food, we opted for sea salt kettle chips.
  13. Enjoy

      It's delicious, Rochelle! If a fast food restaurant offered such an option, I might actually try it :)

      I would eat that. I wonder if a fast food restaurant would dare to try offering something similar.

      I definitely want to try this. I'm all for eating healthier and using all natural ingredients when cooking. I'm trying to slowly become at least somewhat of a vegetarian and I'd like to start by eating one vegetarian meal a day. Please keep the recipes coming and thanks for all the info you've given us!

      This sandwich sounds very tasty, veggie-mom, and ideal for football food! Thanks for the recipe.
