6 Lean Burger Blends for BBQ Season

Firing up the grill? Consider this your ultimate guide to busting burger boredom, with six healthy ways to pick, mix, and cook your meat.

With no saturated fat or cholesterol, a Portobello mushroom burger is about as light as you’re going to get. Just be sure to supplement it with protein-rich sides, like three-bean salad or veggies and hummus dip, to make sure your meal will have staying power.

Shop for it: Look for large Portobello mushroom caps with a firm cap and stem, that are pinkish and dry on the reverse side (an underside that is dark- or wet-looking is past its prime).

Blend it: Whisk together ½ cup olive oil, 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar, and 2 tablespoons mustard. Marinate mushroom caps for 1 hour before grilling.

Cook it: Grill marinated Portobellos 3-4 minutes on each side.
